Volunteer Requirements Review

Laura will be reviewing all volunteer hours and will be sending reminders to those who have not fulfilled or have not signed up to fullfill their volunteer requirements. As stated at registration, depending on the level and participation of your skater, you have required volunteer hours each season or you will be required to pay a volunteer buyout fee. If volunteer hours are not fulfilled or planned by the end of the show weekend, you will be invoiced this fee as of April 1, 2018. If this fee is not paid, it will be collected at registration for the next season. If you have any questions regarding volunteer requirements, please contact Laura at 218-332-0196. Thank you!

Spring Session Learn to Skate Testing

By Laura 02/01/2018, 9:15am CST

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.
