Welcome to the US Figure Skating (USFS) Basic Skills Program. A program of the national governing body of figure skating, Learn to Skate (LTS) instruction is a cost-effective way to learn the basic skills of ice skating. You will learn the fundamentals of ice skating whether you’re interested in recreational ice skating, competitive figure skating, or ice hockey. Individual skaters are grouped with participants of similar age and skill level. Several levels of advancement and patches are awarded for each level.

The LTS program consists of a 30-minute lesson each week for eight weeks plus one a punch card with 8 free punches to practice what you learned during public ice times. Classes are taught all year round on Thursdays at 6:00 pm or Saturdays at 9:00 am. Categories include:

Jump/Spin, Superstars are classes for the beginning to advanced competitive skaters or anyone in private lessons, the focus is working on speed, poise, agility, discussion of new rule changes, proper technique on jumps and spins. These classes are in group form so skaters get to be in a competitive but friendly fun atmosphere. (See lesson times and fees below.)
