Learn to Skate USA provides a fun and positive experience that will spark and sustain a lifelong love of skating. The curriculum offers every participant a rewarding experience rooted in the lifelong benefits of ice skating, beginning with the first steps on the ice to the mastery of advanced skills.

Learn to Skate USA is the only skating program endorsed by U.S. Figure Skating, USA Hockey, US Speedskating, the Professional Skaters Association (PSA) and the Special Olympics. Whether you wish to enjoy the recreational benefits of skating or dream of Olympic fame, this is the place to start.

The Snowplow Sam curriculum helps preschool-age skaters develop preliminary coordination and strength to move around on the ice.

The introductory classes are divided into four progressive levels for kids with no prior skating experience to build confidence in skating and themselves. Fun and games make this positive experience for your kids enjoyable and memorable.

Children must complete the Snowplow Sam curriculum prior to moving on to Learn to Play

Basic 1 to 6

Basic Skills teaches the FUNdamentals of ice skating to ALL AGES and provides the best foundation for figure skating, hockey, and speedskating. Six progressive levels introduce forward and backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, and turns. Upon completion of the Basic Skills 1-6 levels, skaters will be able to confidently advance to more specialized areas of skating.

All classes will be well-structured with the focus on proper skill development taught in a positive, FUN, and social environment. Skaters will progress at their own rate and advance after skill mastery is demonstrated.

Discover, Learn and Play – Basic 1 and 2: These introductory levels allow new skaters with no prior skating experience to build confidence while learning to skate.

FUNdamentals – Basic 3–6: These levels develop all of the fundamental skating skills on the ice. Focus is on learning the ABCs of basic athleticism: agility, balance, coordination and speed. Upon completion of these levels, skaters will be able to confidently advance to more specialized areas of skating.

  • The U.S. Figure Skating Aspire program is the bridge between Learn to Skate group classes and U.S. Figure Skating membership. Through the development of athleticism and artistry, skaters build a solid skill foundation that drives success on and off the ice.

    The safe, supportive group training environment keeps costs down and motivation high as skaters acquire new skills, develop good practice habits and learn the fundamentals of on and off-ice training alongside their peers.

    The Aspire program at Revolution Ice Centre is coordinated through the Blue Ridge Figure Skating Club. For additional information on the Aspire program, contact BRFSC at
