First Time Skaters: For new skaters that are 4-6 years old, sign them up for Snowplow 1. For new skaters that are 7 and older, sign them up for Basic 1.

Class Advancement & Class Levels
The U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills programs boasts 4 Snowplow Sam levels (ages 4 – 5) and 6 Basic Skills class levels.  Each class level has required skating maneuvers that skaters must perfect before advancing to the next level.  Once all is said & done, skaters will have mastered forward & backward skating, stopping, turning and beginner spins & jumps (and so much more) through the completion of all 6 Basic Skills levels.

Evaluations & Pre-Evaluations
Each skater will have the opportunity to be pre-evaluated during the 4th week of classes.  Instructors will present skaters with a progress report which will indicate any maneuvers that need to be practiced before “evaluation day” (7th week) the following week.  During evaluations, each skater will be presented with a class certificate which will indicate whether a skater may advance to the next class level or if a level needs to be repeated.  We highly encourage our students to make use of the public session card as a chance to practice and to be fully prepared for evaluation day.

Make-up Days
Skaters are allotted one make-up class each session of classes, however, all make-up classes must be completed by the conclusion of the 6th week of classes.  No make-ups the 1st or 7th week of any session. Make-up lessons are NOT allowed during evaluations. Contact the skate director for make-up days.

Class Badges
For each class level that is successfully completed, a colorful USFS badge will be presented to the skater during “evaluation day”.  These badges represent hard work, perfection, and completion of levels.  Skaters are encouraged to display these badges on their skating jackets, or skating bags, or favorite skating sweatshirt as a symbol of accomplishment
