These classes are designed to help children six and younger develop the ABCs of movement: agility, balance, coordination and speed. The ABCs are essential for developing fundamental movement skills and physical literacy. All classes will be taught in a safe and positive environment, incorporating fun and games making class time an enjoyable experience for all. Off-ice orientation prior to the first skating class: Equipment check: Proper fit and lacing of skates, appropriate attire and safety helmets. Practice falling and recovery, marching in place, dips and one-foot balances
Basic Skills teaches the FUNdamentals of ice skating and provides the best foundation for figure skating and hockey. Six progressive levels introduce forward and backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, and turns. Upon completion of the Basic Skills 1-6 levels, skaters will be able to confidently advance to more specialized area of skating. All classes will be well-instructed with the focus on proper skill development taught in a positive, FUN, and social environment. Skaters will progress at their own rate and advance after skill mastery is demonstrated.
For ages 7 and up.
Each free skate level is comprised of a variety of progressive skating skills, transitions, spins and jumps — all of which build on the previous skill, providing skaters a strong foundation of all elements. These levels will be taught in a positive and interactive group format such as an Aspire program, circuit classes or as an introductory training program. Instructors will focus on quality and mastery of skills.
This is primarily for the skaters who are focused on competitions, and who might consider figure skating their primary sport focus during the winter months.
