Figure Skating Academy
Supplemental Group Lessons for Figure Skaters
Figure Skating Academy classes run in conjunction with the Learn to Skate calendar and are designed to enhance participant’s overall skating quality. Academy coaches ensure that all participants develop a strong foundation in fundamental figure skating techniques. These supplemental group classes contribute to the complete skater.
Skaters must be at least Basic 6 or Adult 4 to be enrolled in any Figure Skating Academy Class. It is recommended that skaters interested in pursuing figure skating further than the Basic 8′s consider these classes, as well as scheduling regular private lessons.
All participants must hold USFS Insurance, valid from July 1 – June 30 each year. Insurance may be purchased online or at the Ticket Office. Those enrolled in both the Learn to Skate Program and Figure Skating Academy only need to pay the annual fee one time each year.
