To move to the next level in the Learn to Skate USA curriculum, skaters will be tested by their instructor at the end of each session. Testing will be completed usually without the skaters even knowing they are being tested. Instructors may start testing the last two weeks of the session. Testing is a measure of the skills a skater has learned. Please be sure to encourage your child to excel, but please remember that each child will meet goals and advance at their own pace. Please do not compare your child to another, instead praise them for the goals they have personally achieved. At the end of the session each skater will receive an evaluation sheet. The skaters who have passed will also receive a badge and a certificate for their achievement. If your skater does not pass their current level, the evaluation sheet will be a great tool to see your skater's progress and to see what skills need improvement. If you have questions about your skater's advancement, please introduce yourself to your skater’s coach and feel free to ask questions. The last nights of regular Learn to Skate Classes are Monday, MARCH 5 AND Thursday, MARCH 8.
Ole & Lena's pizza sold for our Spring fundraiser will be available for pick up on Thursday, February 15th from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in the ALC Lunchroom which is through the double doors near the concession stand on the 2nd floor of the arena.
The Fergus Falls Skating Club programs introduce people of all ages to the sport of ice skating, providing a fun and safe skating experience for the beginner as well as the more advanced skater.
All programs are run under the guidelines of the United Stated Figure Skating Association and Learn to Skate USA.
