Learn to Skate USA

The Fergus Falls Skating Club is proud to introduce the newly designed Learn to Skate USA program!

The mission of Learn to Skate USA is to provide a fun and positive experience that will instill a lifelong love of skating.

Objectives of Learn to Skate USA:

  • Teach children and adults the fundamentals of ice skating while building confidence and skills through each lesson.

  • Provide a progressive curriculum that ensures success from the first steps on the ice to the mastery of advanced skills.

  • Promote the health and fitness benefits of ice skating.

  • Equip each participant with the foundation necessary to reach their goal, be it recreational or competitive in nature.

Stemming from the rebrand of the Basic Skills Program, Learn to Skate USA offers an abundance of enhancements tailored toward improving the experience for program directors, rink manager, owners, instructors, parents and skaters.

Learn to Skate USA is the only ice skating program endorsed by U.S. Figure Skating, USA Hockey, and U.S. Speedskating. Learn to Skate USA offers every participant a rewarding experience rooted in the lifelong benefits of ice skating.

Classes are are held on Monday and Thursday evenings as varying times depending on the skater's level. Hockey Skills classes are also available on Monday evenings. If you are interested in private lessons, please contact Heather Dirkman.
