Professional Staff 

The Skating School Staff provides a highly qualified coaching staff under the direction of Danny Tate, Skating Director. All coaches on staff are members of the United States Figure Skating Association (USFSA), the governing body for figure skating in the United States, Professional Skaters Association (PSA), the international organization of teaching and performing professionals or the Ice Skating Institute (ISI), an international organization for the recreational skater.

Class Day

Each class day all students must sign in at the skate school window. On the first day of class, students should arrive 15 minutes early in order to complete any paper work necessary.

USFSA Badges

As students progress through the Basic Skills levels, badges may be purchased at the skate school office. These badges indicate each level of achievement.

What to Wear

Children need gloves or mittens. Sweat suits are recommended, or any long pants, as long as they are not confining. As rink temperatures vary, dressing in layers is a good idea. Socks should be thin rather than thick.


Refunds are issued up to the end of the first week of classes. All refunds are subject to a $20.00 administration fee.

Make Up Passes

All class skaters making up a missed class must present a make-up pass to the instructor on the ice. A make-up pass may be obtained from the skate school office. No make ups will be allowed after the last class of the term.

Private Lessons

Private lessons may be arranged as a supplement to classes after advancing to Basic Skills Level 6. Private lessons are taught on FreeStyle ice only. This ice time may be purchased at the skate school office.
