Do you need to learn the basic fundamentals to get started?
Are you ready to master more challenging skating skills?
Either way, our comprehensive approach to conquering individual elements gives you the skills, the knowledge, and the urge to go far on the ice…And, even further in life.
We teach a curriculum that offers something for everyone, from the first steps on the ice to mastering advanced technique. Solid skill development is based on the ABC’s of basic athleticism- Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed. It is a progressive system that, upon completion of the program, allows skaters to confidently advance to more specialized areas of skating.
