PowerSkating Academy Classes
All our classes focus strictly on a technical skating unless otherwise noted. All of our skating programs involve a progression of technical skills and a progression through levels. Most classes follow our deliberate, slow and perfect methodology. All skaters are evaluated and grouped based on their technical skating ability/level first and then as close to age. Skating classes group skaters at a 6:1 student to coach ratio. Below offers a basic guide to our classes.
*Our classes are a full ice hour (60 minutes minus a mandatory ice resurfacing). Please read details of funSKATE and Learn To Play classes.
