Class Advancement & Class Levels
The U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills programs provides instruction at:

  • Snowplow Sam levels 1-4 (ages 4 – 6), 
  • Basic Skills class levels 1-6 (ages 7 - Adult), 
  • Hockey levels 1-4 (ages 4- Adult), and
  • Free Skate levels Pre-Free- Free Skate 6 (ages 7 + upon passing Basic 6) 

Each class level has required skating maneuvers that skaters must perfect before advancing to the next level.  See the detailed curriculum with all skating skills listed for each level below. 

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 Learn to Skate classes. Make-up lessons are available only during the group sessions on an alternate day.  For example, a skater in the 6pm Wednesday session would be able to attend a class during either the Monday or Saturday LTS session.  Make-up classes are not permitted on either the first or last week of any session. Make-up lessons are NOT allowed during evaluations.  All make-up dates must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance.  To schedule a make-up date, contact the skate director.
