Learn to Skate Class Descriptions


Tots Learn to Skate

Learn to Skate (all ages): Our regular Learn to Skate sessions are for all ages and abilities, from age 3 to adults. During our LTS sessions, skaters can earn badges as they progress. There are basic skills badges that all beginner figure and hockey skaters can benefit from, as well as specialized badges based on interests.  Synchronized Skating  and Freestyle Skating badges are available, in addition to Hockey-related badges (see below for details on Hockey program).

Tots Learn to Skate -- While tots over age 3 are welcome at any of the LTS sessions, this program is just for pre-school age beginning skaters, from 3 to about 6.  This program focuses on building confidence while learning the basic skills of skating and is designed to help children develop the ABCs of movement – Agility, Balance, Coordination and speed. The ABCs are essential for developing fundamental movement skills and physical literacy. Classes are taught in a safe and positive environment, incorporating fun and games making class time an enjoyable experience for all! 

Homeschool/CyberSchool Learn to Skate -- Cyberschool and homeschool families participate in this session.

Adult Learn to Skate --  While adults can participate in any Learn-to-Skate (and they do), we have a  session dedicated to adults that meets on Tuesday nights during much of the year.  Contact : Cindy Thomasson at thomassoncynthia@yahoo.com

Hockey Learn-to-Skate

Beginner and Power Hockey skating classes are available during our family Learn to Skate.  These lessons are developed in conjunction with USA Hockey and will develop or strengthen the skills needed for beginning and advanced beginning players.  A look at the hockey curriculum is available in the document below. 

In four badge levels, skaters will learn how to be more proficient and agile on the ice. Proper skating techniques for the game of hockey are the primary focus of the levels. All elements will be taught without a puck. Skaters will learn the basic hockey stance, stride, knee bend, use of edges and other necessary fundamentals to be successful in hockey practices and game situations.  Classes are held Thursdays, 5:45pm-7:00pm.  Next session begins November 2nd!  See below for class dates.

Necessary equipment: • Hockey skates • HECC Approved Hockey Helmet

Use the regular LTS registration link, but be sure to select the Hockey Track when asked.
