Information

Figure Skating is a unique sport where skaters need to master both athletic fitness and artistic expression, which makes Figure Skating not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but one of the most exciting and technically difficult sports in the world.

Figure Practice Sessions are private sessions for figure skaters and figure coaches only. To be eligible to skate and train in these sessions, skaters may be from any club provided they adhere to the following guidelines:

  • All skaters and coaches are required to pay at the cashiers office upon entry.
  • All skaters must have at least one private lesson per week.
  • During our figure sessions, you are able to play your own music via the AUX cord using music players or phones. All skaters must be aware and give way to those who are wearing a high-viz vest signifying that they are practicing their program to the music being played.
  • All skaters must be courteous and respectful to other skaters, coaches & parents.
