Academy Beginning July 6th!

St. Paul FSC Academy Announcement!

We have been able to structure small-group, semi-private academy lessons beginning in July! 


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 this summer. 


Summer Academy Semi-Private Lessons:

When: Starting July 6th, semi-private lessons will be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. There will be two time options offered each night. YOU MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE FOR THE ENTIRE SUMMER. Due to the rules and guidelines surrounding Covid-19, we will no longer be able to offer drop-in style classes or offer make-up sessions. Semi-private small-group lessons will be 45 minutes in length, every week for 8-weeks. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first serve basis. 


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 Covid19 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 as outlined below. Coaches will be wearing masks, skaters who choose to wear a mask will be supported in their choice.
