The Arctic Edge Training Center is now offering the United States Figure Skating Aspire Program. The Aspire program is designed to transition Learn to skate participants to a higher level Figure Skater by instilling the beginning foundations of a good training program through on and off ice training. Our coaches will teach proper skill development and training techniques, in a small group setting. There will be a 15 min off ice class before the 30 min on ice class. 

5:25pm-5:40pm Off Ice - Our off ice sessions will vary daily, but skaters will learn proper warm-up, stretching, movement, and jump technique. 

5:50pm-6:20pm On Ice - On ice training will begin with developing proper stroking and edge technique while learning the first skating skills test.  After that, the skaters will break in to small groups according to level to continue to work on their respective test levels. 

  • Basic 2-6 Private Lesson Addition ($10 per 15 minute lesson): 

In addition to their group class, skaters may receive a 15 minute private lesson during their practice time. You may request  1 week or all 8 weeks if available.
