Learn to Skate - On Covid Hold

Everyone Can Learn to Skate! **IMPORTANT: Please read thoroughly and then scroll down to Register**

 

Learn to Skate classes are great for learning both basic skating skills and more advanced skills in a group setting. St. Paul FSC offers classes from preschoolers to adults. We also offer classes for hockey skaters to enhance their skating skills. Classes are geared toward making skaters feel comfortable and challenged on the ice.

 

Due to the Covid19 rules and regulations set forth by Ramsey County and the St. Paul FSC, we have had to work to adapt the format of our LTS and preschool class structures. We are excited to announce that we have some new small group offerings that might be suitable for your skaters!

 

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

 

Registration for the Pre-Academy Classes, the hockey specific pods and our chaperon/skater small group lessons are now available online: clients.mindbodyonline.com

 

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Pre-Academy 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.

Due to Covid19 rules and regulations, coaches are not allowed to assist skaters if they fall down. Chaperons are invited onto the ice to help assist their young skaters. This class is not intended to teach skating skills to adults, but rather, allow a chaperon onto the ice to help facilitate learning for our youngest skaters. These small group lessons will be at Pleasant Arena. The price for these small group lessons are $135 for the session.

How to Register:

This program does require the skater to register for Learn to Skate which is a collaboration between U.S. Figure Skating and USA Hockey.  Registration is just once per year and is required prior to registering for classes at St. Paul FSC to meet insurance mandates. If you’ve registered with Learn to Skate USA in the past, then this year you “renew” your membership. 

Step 1: Learn to Skate USA Registration
  • Navigate to the Learn to Skate USA website

  • Click on “Login/Renew” in the upper right-hand corner

  • Click on “Become A Member” or "Renew"

  • Click on “Skater/Parent of a Skater”

  • Complete the steps to become a Learn to Skate USA member and then exit and return to this page to sign up for classes below

Step 2: Register for classes with St. Paul FSC
  • Navigate to St. Paul FSC class registrations

  • Click on the tab "Pleasant Learn to Skate"

  • Choose your class

  • If you have an account, sign-in, or create an account on our registration system to register for classes. If you have more than one child, you will need to create a separate account with a unique login for each child (you can use the same email address, but the password must be different). If you received a receipt for each individual child, then you signed up correctly. Class fees are non-refundable and due at the time of registration. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

Required Equipment

Snowplow Sam & Basic Skills skaters should have a helmet (bicycle or hockey), mittens and single blade skates. It’s also recommended that skaters wear warm, easy-to-move in clothing. Snow pants and a winter coat work great for first time skaters. Hockey skaters should be in full equipment.
