SPFSC Academy

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

Fall Academy Lessons Days/Times: 

September 9th - November 21st

Tuesday - Friday: 5:30pm - 6:30pm

Saturday: 11:40am - 12:40pm

Please note, there will not be academy classes at Pleasant Arena during the week of November 9th as our coaching staff will be at the Upper Great Lakes Regional Competition. Fall Academy classes will end on November 21st.


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.
