Fall Session Evaluations 

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, December 5th through December 19th.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. 


Weather Announcements

The FFSC will send out a remind notification for any cancellations and our Facebook page will also show any weather related announcements. Both of these resources are great places to get the most  current FFSC news. Although, the rule of thumb is that if Fergus Falls schools have been closed, so has the arena and all classes and ice blocks are cancelled. 


Other Useful Information

The concession stand will be open most evenings at 5:30 pm. Charging will not be allowed at the concessions, but there is a prepaid system that can be used. There is also an ATM machine on the 2nd floor and a vending machine on the 1st floor of the arena.
