INTRO TO FIGURE SKATING FUNDAMENTALS
Recommended for Ages 5-12
This learn-to-figure-skate program allows skaters to dip their toe into the figure skating world without the full commitment that comes with joining our Junior STARSkate program. Designed to last 6-8 weeks, this program continues to teaching the CanSkate curriculum; except now skaters are on an ice session with other figure skaters.
Skaters who want to continue figure skating will be encouraged to join our Junior STARSkate program, which includes off-ice training, teambuilding and showcase events!
