BASIC SKILLS AND FREESTYLE/ADVANCED PROGRAM
"Tots" (AGES 4 & 5 yrs.) are taught in appropriate groupings for 30 minutes. Director may move a child to other ice time based on ability. Tots should be dressed warmly and wear gloves and a skating helmet or hockey helmet. Tots MUST be 4 on or before the first class.
"Introductory" (6 & up) are those who have not received prior instruction, regardless of ability. Instructor will evaluate student and place at CORRECT level.
"Pre-Alpha - Delta" are badge levels designated by Ice Skating Institute and are strictly adhered to in our system. Skaters are constantly evaluated and tested at appropriate intervals. Tests are registered with the national office when participants become ISI members. Skaters receive a patch and certificate of recognition for each level attained. Once the Delta level is passed, students may participate in a group Freestyle class.
"Adults" 16 year and older are encouraged to enroll in our Monday Evening Classes. Class times and structure are determined upon enrollment.
"Freestyle 1 - 10" are badge levels designated by ISI and are strictly adhered to in our system. Skaters are constantly evaluated during the session and tested at appropriate levels. ISI membership is required of ALL freestyle /Advanced students. Forms are available in the business office and will be presented to students periodically. All freestyle tests will then be registered with ISI and patches will be awarded upon completion of each level. National membership is $10.00, family rates available. Skater may not compete in ISI competitions without membership and an up to date test registration.
