Learn to Skate Program

LEARN TO SKATE PROGRAM

The MIRFSC uses the guidelines of the United States Figure Skating Association. Our season runs from November through March. More information can be found at www.learntoskateusa.com The first stage of skills forms a strong foundation for your skaters to explore the world of skating. All will progress at their own pace working toward mastering each skill. Our program encourages skaters to trade in hesitation for excitement as they grow a love for skating. The FUNdamentals harness those skills as agility, balance, coordination and speed become the main focus of this curriculum.
