Learn To Skate
The Learn to Skate program, established in 1995, follows the curriculum guidelines established by the Ice Skating Institute (ISI). The program also includes elements from the U.S. Figure Skating Association. The curriculum is a blend of both programs and prepares the student to make an easy transition into either direction of the skating world. The program is designed to maximize the student's development, enhance learning, and provide a solid background comprised of all the basic elements of figure skaing. Year-round lesson programs are available for ages 3 and up and at all ability levels. Classes consist of six or eight half-hour lessons, followed by six or eight half-hour practice sessions. Lessons are available year round, and categorized into sections: Fall I, Fall II, Winter, Spring and Summer. Class size is limited to a maximum of 15 students, however we keep classes smaller for all Tot levels. All classes are held in the Fred Rust Ice Arena.
Class Testing: Testing is available on the fifth or seventh week of class for all skaters. Each student receives a certificate, ribbon and/or badge to indicate his or her progress with the training. Group lessons offer an excellent introduction to skating and provide a foundation for fun that will last a lifetime.

Skating has always been a sport of athleticism, mixed with grace. While learning the technical side on the ice, every good skater takes part in a ballet program. We are excited to offer a ballet class geared to skaters of all ages, at the alpha level and up.
Take skating to the next level with our fantastic stroking class. Students will learn a variety of drills, exercises, and other maneuvers, which will help develop speed and control on the ice. Stroking, power skating techniques, and advanced strengthening skills are just a few of the many beneficial elements your skater will learn as a participant in the stroking class.
The power development class uses the high engery of music and the art of presentation to teach students how to skate their best. And, while the student learns to increase their speed, they also learn about style, choreography and motion.
Registration for Ballet, Stroking and Power Development must be done in person at the Information window in the Fred Rust Ice Arena.
