We offer the US Figure Skating Learn To Skate curriculum. New skaters will be evaluated on the first day of class. Skaters are able to pass tests throughout the session and are encouraged to progress at their own pace.
Skaters who want private lessons or who are interested to competitive or advanced recreational figure skating are encouraged to take lessons with a skating professional. Any of our skating instructors can answer questions and many offer private lessons. See the full list of our professional staff on our Coaches page.
Skaters enrolled in the Learn To Skate program may participate in our annual ice show and are encouraged to try our Summer Skate competition. Many Figure Skating Club of Minneapolis skaters who began with group lessons now participate in competitions.
Learn To Skate Levels
Snowplow Sam Levels are designed for kids age 6 and younger to learn the basics of skating. Skaters will learn how to fall, get back up again, march across the ice and build the confidence to continue their skating journey.
Basic Skills levels are available to all skaters over the age of 6 who are taking their first steps on the ice. Skaters learn the fundamentals of ice skating. Basic skills set skaters up for success no matter what ice sport a skater chooses to do.
Learn to Skate USAs's Freeskate program introduces skaters to the beginning elements of figure skating, including progressive skating skills, transitions, spins & Jumps. This where skaters can really decide if they want to choose a competitive path or a more recreational skating path.
It's never too late to lean how to skate, adults skate too. Learn to skate USA has a program just for adults! It's a great way to stay in shape and improve existing skills and even learn new skills.
