This season we will be running US Figure Skating’s Learn to Skate USA Program that was rolled out June 1st, 2016. Each skater skating in our Snowplow Sam or Basic Classes is required to have a US Figure Skating Learn to Skate USA Membership. This membership is included in your registration fee on a once a season basis. The first time you register you will be charged the additional fee and any time you register after you will NOT be charged that fee. If you already have a US Figure Skating Membership or a Learn to Skate USA Membership you will not be charged that fee. The Recreation Department will have a record of all US Figure Skating Members. With your membership you will receive a Welcome Packet which will include a membership card, a record book to track progress through the program and a Learn to Skate USA Magazine.
Please arrive about 15 minutes prior to their scheduled class time allowing sufficient time to get skates on. Skaters will be assigned to classes according to their level and ability. Class times and instructor information will be posted on the Figure Skating Bulletin Board in Rink B one week prior to classes starting. You may also call the Arena Office for skate times. If an email address is provided on your form, the schedule will also be emailed out. Proper skating attire is required. No bare skin legs allowed. Skate rental is available for $2.00.

Snowplow Sam & Learn to Skate Classes
Classes are held on Fridays (Fall/Winter), Wednesdays (Spring), or Thursdays (Summer) in the following time slots: 6:00-6:30p.m; 6:30-7:00p.m; 7:00-7:30p.m. The 3rd week of class is pre-test, the 6th week of class is testing your half hour class time will change each new session. If there is a conflict with a work schedule you may make a request by writing it at the bottom of your form, but a request may not always be able to be accommodated based on the number of participants. We have student helpers to assist with classes but remember this is a class setting and not a private lesson.
There are four levels of Snowplow Sam and 6 levels of Basic Skills.
Snowplow Sam Classes are offered for those who are at least at the age of three by September 1st, 2021 (Fall/Winter), May 1st, 2022 (Spring) or July 1st, 2022 (Summer). Tots are required to wear a safety helmet. You must provide your own helmet. They are not provided for you. All Snowplow Sam skaters must be potty-trained (no diapers or pull-ups). Snowplow Sam will not be allowed on the ice without a helmet and proper skating attire. All parents are requested to remain in the lobby or in the bleachers during class time.

Basic Skills Classes
Skills skaters must be ages 6-17 years old. Skaters can be younger if they have already tested through our Snowplow Sam Skating Levels.
