For skaters interested in both figure and hockey skating, Basic Skills lessons teach all the fundamentals of the sport of skating including forward and backward techniques, stops, turns and edges.
These levels prepare skaters with the knowledge to advance into specialized areas of skating. It is important that the level progression is followed and for skaters to demonstrate skills efficiently to staff before advancing. Instructors will evaluate students and give progress reports to skaters at the end of each season.
Testing will be offered to those who are ready to advance.
