The emphasis of this curriculum is to develop confident and competent skaters of all levels and ages. The six levels can be taught as a group or used as individual goals. From the first steps on the ice, skaters will progress at their own pace and advance once they have mastered each skill. These skills will build a foundation that will aid skaters throughout the rest of their skating careers.
Here's where you'll start!
