Helpful tips:

  • Skaters are expected to attend class ready to learn and with a positive attitude. Any specialty class skater who is disruptive will be dismissed.
  • Skaters are expected to be respectful of their instructors and be willing to learn.
  • Being ready to learn includes your state of mind as well as your skating attire.
    • To participate in all Academy classes including Aspire, Dance, Synchro, and Speed Skating, skaters must wear athletic-type clothing (leggings, fitted tops, and jackets - no baggy clothing)
  • Have hair pulled back in ponytail or bun if hair is long enough. 
  • Wear appropriate gym shoes for off-ice warm-up
  • Bring a water bottle.
