TWO DAYS OF GROUP LESSONS
Winter Club’s Learn to Skate group lesson program will resume in October. The program will be expanded this season with classes held on two days:
SUNDAYS 12:45-2:15 p.m. and THURSDAYS 5:15-6:15 p.m.
Classes are for beginners and advanced skaters, following the U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills Program. Our professional coaches teach fun classes for children (3 and older), teens and adults.
We also offer hockey skating skills classes for children and adults!
Junior Club, a group-lesson program for skaters in Basic 4 or higher, includes a fun off-ice class of skating-related exercises, as well as an on-ice skating skills class. The Junior Club program helps transition skaters from Learn to Skate to Winter Club’s free skate sessions and private lessons.

SCOUTS AND SCHOOLS
Winter Club Learn to Skate offers one-time and multi-session group lessons for Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, and can customize skating experiences for school, home school, church and community groups. Birthday parties, including a group lesson, also can be arranged. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
U.S. Figure Skating has honored Winter Club Learn to Skate with a Community Development Grant. Skating’s national governing body chooses six clubs each year to receive $2,000 each to help develop programs and events designed to attract and involve new generations of figure skaters. The grant will allow Winter Club Learn to Skate to expand its program, offer a wider variety of classes and include participants in the club’s 75th-anniversary events.
