Learn to Skate

FSCO curriculum follows the Learn to Skate USA Program. This program is fantastic because it offers new and existing skaters a chance to work in groups with professional coaches in a safe and fun environment.
Why should you learn how to skate?

Learning how to ice skate offers many benefits!

  • Learn new skills in a fun, supportive environment

  • Develop motor skills to increase coordination and balance

  • Create new memories with family and friends - we have classes for all ages

  • Develop life skills such as determination, persistence, goal setting, and confidence

  • Increase physical fitness - skating is excellent exercise

FSCO offers many different group programs based on skater’s age and skill level:

  • Snow Plow Sam: This is our “Tot” program designed for 3-5 year olds. Skaters will learn beginning skating skills along with improved coordination and listening skills in a fun, game filled, play atmosphere!

  • Basic Skills (FUNdamentals): Six carefully planned levels allow the beginning skater to feel comfortable on the ice while gaining the basic skating knowledge needed to advance to any of the next levels of the Learn to Skate USA program. These basic elements are critical for all skating disciplines, including figure skating, hockey, speed skating, and recreational. Some examples of the elements taught are: snow plow stops, forward and backward skating, basic turns, beginning jumps, and spins. After passing a level, skaters will receive a certificate and may purchase a badge that signifies their test level.

  • Freeskate: After completing the Basic Skills program, skaters are eligible to enter Freeskate classes. This provides the skaters a group class emphasizing figure skating disciplines. This program consists of a Pre-Freeskate level (formerly Basic 7 & 8 levels) and Freeskate levels 1-6. Each free skate level is comprised of a variety of progressive skating skills, transitions, spins and jumps — all of which build on the previous skill, providing skaters a strong foundation of all elements. These levels will be taught in a positive and interactive group format. Instructors will focus on quality and mastery of skills.

  • Adults: Skating isn’t just for the kids. We offer adult learn to skate classes during the same class time as our child group classes. These classes will teach the skills necessary to join and adult hockey club, participate in adult competition, or recreational skating to keep up with your kids!
