Learn to Figure Skate

Once skaters have completed our Learn To Skate Classes, they can progress to our Aussie Skate Intermediate and Freeskate classes.  These introduce more advanced figure skating specific skills, including higher level jumps, spins, sprials and edges.  Skaters can look towards doing figure skating competitions, completing their ISA (Ice Skating Australia) preliminary test, and joining our in-house figure skating club, the Sydney Figure Skating Club (SFSC).
