Class Descriptions
 

Snowplow Sam Program

The Snowplow Sam levels are designed to help the preschool-age skater develop preliminary coordination and strength to maneuver on the ice.

Basic Skills

Fundamentals of the sport! These 6 levels of the program introduce the fundamental moves: forward skating, backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, turns and Mohawks. Upon completion of the Basic 1-6 levels, skaters will have a basic knowledge of the sport, enabling them to advance to more specialized areas of skating. Classes will be 30 minutes with a 30 min practice time. Classes are for ages 6 and up.

Pre-Freeskate and Freeskate Levels

These levels are the beginning levels to figure skating. Learn advance skating skills, spins, jumps and spirals.

Adults

It's never too late to learn to skate! If you’ve skated as kid or have never been on the ice before, we can teach you how to skate and make sure you learn the basics (or even more advance skating skills too).

Hockey

For skaters who want to refine their skating skills! No sticks or pads required, lots of edges, drills and crossovers!
