INTRODUCTION TO FIGURE SKATING (IFS)

Master Schedule 2019-2020

IFS is a group program designed for those skaters who wish to enter into the STARSkate/CompetitiveSkate stream.  Skaters must be able to demonstrate basic forward and backwards skating skills. Skating skills will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please email federationskating@gmail.com to set-up a try-out or for more information.
