Usually we take a 2 week break in between Learn to Skate Semesters. The upcoming Learn to Skate semester starts the week of April 19th and we will only be taking one week off between semesters. We did this so that we could start our Summer Skating program the beginning of June. The last week of classes now end the last full week of May. You can register for classes either at the rink or online through our website here.
A lot of people think that since our Learn to Skate program is run through US Figure Skating that people interested in hockey can’t participate and that is not the case at all. Learn to Skate lays the foundation and groundwork for skating whether you plan to do figure skating or hockey. Kids that go through a LTS program prior to going into hockey or figure skating go into their sports as stronger skaters then children and adults who do not. They learn how to skate both forwards, backwards, turns, cross overs and more which benefits both skating sports.
US Figure Skating also has a program designed for skaters interested in hockey from within the Learn to Skate Program. Skaters take basic Skills classes up through Basic 1 before enrolling in Hockey Learn to Skate classes. The curriculum for hockey is broken into 4 separate classes that will prepare them for local youth hockey and adult hockey. To learn more about the hockey Learn to Skate contact us
