Snowplow Sam levels are introductory classes divided into 4 progressive levels allowing children with no prior skating experience to build confidence while learning the basic skills of skating. These classes are designed to help children 6 & 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.
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.
This year we are doing something new! Introducing Dryland! Tuesdays from 6:45-7:45 in the CC Loft for Basic 1 and up with Lindsey and 2 helpers. The girls will be doing exercises working on their agility, their balance, their coordination, and their speed! She has lined up some local ladies to teach exercise and yoga. We all know a good skater becomes the best skater by practicing on AND off the ice! We are very excited to try this for the 2021-2022 season!
