(JUNE 7, 2021)

Due to the uncertainty of the ice conditions, the Fergus Falls Skating Club has made the tough decision to forgo the Session #1 Learn to Skate Group Lesson programming. We will, however, move forward with positivity in planning Session #2. These details and a separate registration link will be made available mid to late June.
The club has decided to move forward as best as possible with Learn to Skate and Advanced PRIVATE ice. This is a more feasible approach to the first session. There could be days that the ice is not skateable and we may need to cancel an ice block. However, since we will not have our 2 hours of group instruction on Tuesday nights, the originally scheduled Tuesday 7:45 pm to 8:45 pm LTS Private Lesson Private Lesson block needs to be moved to Monday evenings from 6:45 pm to 7:45 pm. We have been communicating with the city and rink staff to make the best of a difficult situation.
All families that have registered for the Tuesday 7:45 pm LTS Private Lesson Block will be contacted individually since we realize that the move to Monday night at 6:30 pm may not work for some.
Please understand that we are all trying our best to make good choices and create opportunities for our participating families.If you have any questions or concerns about these decisions, I would encourage you to contact our FFSC Board President, Ashley Lee, at 218-770-4534.
Thank you for your understanding!

Learn to Skate Exhibition

By Laura 02/09/2021, 1:15pm CST


   Only Advanced and Learn to Skate private lesson skaters will be participating in she show this year due to COVID restrictions. Please understand that this was a very hard decision to make. Next year we hope to have our full show back! Show parts have been posted on the bulletin board in the hall next to the FFSC office! Please check the spelling of your skater’s name (If they are taking private lessons and planning to skate in the show) on the sheets posted on the bulletin board. If there is a typo/misspelling, please contact Heather Dirkman at 218-770-0532.
   We are still planning something special for our Learn to Skate skaters! Our plan is to have a little exhibition on Thursday, March 4th! Starting this week we will take 5-10 min to work on a routine that includes the skills in their level. The last week of skating we want ALL Learn to Skate skaters to come to practice on Monday, March 1st during your scheduled class time and we will have a little run through.   
   On Thursday, March 4th we will have ALL Learn to Skate Skaters come for the exhibition at 6:30 pm! More information will be coming regarding what rink we will be in and how many spectators we will be allowed. For the special family members and friends that will not be able to attend, we will be live streaming it for them to watch!


If you have any questions, please contact Heather Dirkman at 218-770-0532. Thank you!

Spring Session LTS Testing

By Laura 02/03/2021, 1:45pm 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 LTS CLASSES ARE MARCH 1st & 4th.


That's a wrap! Thank you parents, skaters and coaches for a great season and show!
