INTRODUCTION TO FIGURE SKATING (IFS)
IFS is a group program designed for those skaters who wish to enter into the STARSkate/CompetitiveSkate stream. This is a 1 hour program for skaters ages 5 to 15 years. Skaters must be able to demonstrate basic forward skating skills. Skating skills will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set-up a try-out or for more information.
This program is lead by a NCCP Professional Coach and was created to help skaters transition between CanSkate to figure skating. Skaters start with a 15 minute stroking class with the STARskate skaters and then move into 45 minute lesson time which they will be introduced to dance skills, skating skills, spins & jumps. The skaters will also participate in a 30 minute off-ice class to build strength, flexibility and jump/spin technique.
