SPFSC Academy - On Covid Hold
St. Paul FSC Academy
Please join us for the 2020 School Year Academy small group classes. These lessons will be taught by two high-level coaches. TJ Yang and Keiko Kano recently joined the St. Paul FSC coaching staff. TJ Yang was a Team USA and International medalist. For the last nine years, he has starred with Disney on Ice as a principal skater. His wife Keiko has fifteen years of professional ice show experience, including as a principal skater with Disney on Ice. They are excited and committed to teaching our academy lessons.
Fall Academy Small Group Lessons

Our small group lesson sizes will be extremely limited with a maximum of five skaters per coach. These lessons are intended for skaters who already know how to skate. Due to social distancing requirements, coaches will not be able to assist skaters with getting up if they fall down. Due to Covid-19 requirements, in an effort to reduce exposure and follow capacity guidelines, parents and spectators will NOT be allowed in the building. There will also be strict entry and exit procedures for skaters. Coaches will be wearing masks, skaters who choose to wear a mask will be supported in their choice.
All participants will be required to sign a release form that includes agreeing to the Covid-19 entry and exit times and procedures.

Fall Pre-Academy Introductory Small Group Classes
The Pre-Academy Classes are great for our younger skaters who are able to stand up and move around by themselves on the ice. These classes are recommended for any skater who is able to stand up on their own, up to and including the previous Basic 3 LTS level.
Skaters will be sorted into small group pods based on their age and ability on their first day of class. Over the course of an hour, these small groups will move around the ice to different learning stations and coaches. The coach at each station will focus on different skating skills. The price for the Pre-Academy 1-hour classes are $195 for the fall session.
Space is extremely limited due to Covid19 rules and regulations.
All skaters registering for any of the below classes MUST have a valid USFS or LTS membership. You can renew your LTS membership here: https://learntoskateusa.com
