Workshop Lesson Plans


      The General and Free Skating Workshops are designed to be taken concurrently
if enough ice time is available and the skaters can practice a minimum of two sessions
between each group lesson.


      Each series of classes may wary in the length of each class and the number of classes
 in each enrollment period.  Parents should understand that while their child may acquire
the ability to perform each element well enough to receive a badge, they must continue practicing so they eventually will fully MASTER the skills. The process of acquiring
new skills and continuing to perfect the previous skills will be the pattern during the
entire time a person participates in taking lessons and entering competitions.
