Our Red Rose Figure Skating Club's Learn to Skate offers lessons in the following categories:
Snowplow Sam 1-4: Children ages 3-6
These introductory classes help young skaters develop the basics of movement while having fun on the ice! Helmets are required for all Snowplow Sam students. Bike and hockey helmets work best.
Basic Skills 1-6: Youth 7-17, adults 18+
Skaters will learn the foundation of figure skating through these 6 progressive levels through both on and office instruction.

The fundamentals of hockey are taught through this four level badge program after which skaters will progress to Learn to Play. Skaters will learn the elements without a puck and a HECC approved hockey helmet is required.
Below are some frequently asked questions to help you prepare for your session:
What happens on the first day?
Please arrive 15 minutes ahead of your session to allow enough time for check in and putting on skates. Skaters will be grouped by appropriate age and level and will be introduced to the instructor.
How do I or my child move to the next level?
Instructors will evaluate skaters based on the Learn to Skate USA curriculum. An evaluation is done at the midpoint of the 6 week session as well as at the end. If a skater passes the requirements, the skater will receive a certificate and will be able to sign up for the next level if the skater enrolls in the next session of Red Rose Learn to Skate. Private lessons are always available with our certified coaches if a skater wishes to have additional help during these 6 week sessions as well as other times.
What to wear:
Dress in warm, comfortable layers that allow freedom of movement. Gloves or mittens are a must! Thin socks work best and don’t forget your helmet if your level requires it.
What do I receive as part of my Learn to Skate Membership?
A Learn to Skate membership is a yearly membership (July 1st-June 30th) which is included in your registration. You will receive a welcome packet in the mail that includes a subscription to Learn to Skate USA The Magazine. A membership allows you to participate in lessons, competitions and other Learn to Skate USA affiliated activities.
