Learn To Skate


Skating can be confusing for those new to the sport, so here we'll try to make it simple!

The U.S. Figure Skating Association has devised sets of levels which skaters pass through in their development. There is a unique test structure and competitive pipeline that takes you from Basic Skills to the elite levels of the sport.

  • Preschool-aged beginners learn to skate with Snowplow Sam 1-4 levels. After completing the Snowplow Sam 4 level, they will move up to Basic Skills 1-6.
  • Beginning children ages 6+ years learn to skate with the Basic Skills 1-8 levels.
  • Adult beginners learn to skate with the Adult 1-6 levels.

All figure skaters who have passed Basic Skills 1-6 or Adult 1-6 may then enter the competitive Tests pipeline to move into advanced skating development.

Skates are available for all Learn to Skate participants and rentals are included in the class fee.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of class to get your skates.
