Ice Skating
Learn to Skate USA
Anyone enrolled in the Learn to Skate program at EPIC is eligible to
sign up for membership in the United States Figure Skating (USFS)
program. This is an optional registration offered for an additional
fee giving the participant access to membership privileges in USFS.
This membership with USFS is not required to participate in the
Learn to Skate program at EPIC. Additional information is available at
learntoskateusa.com and during all Learn to Skate classes.
General Information
All Ice programs are held at EPIC unless otherwise noted.
Lessons are taught by Certified P.S.A. instructors and are in
compliance with the United States Figure Skating Association.
Parents may observe lessons from the upstairs bleachers; it is
distracting and creates an obstruction for skaters and coaches to
have parents at the gate or in the hockey boxes.
Individuals are not allowed on the ice with their shoes on. Parents
are welcome to skate with their child during the 15-minute practice
time. EPIC's rental skates are available free of charge.
Our class student to instructor ratio is one instructor for every 10
students. Any Snowplow Sam, Basic 1, or Basic 2 classes greater than
10 students include an additional assistant. Minimum for all classes is
5 students; class levels may be combined to meet this minimum.
Skating lesson are 30-minutes in length with a 15-minute practice
time, which may be before or after the lesson depending on
scheduling.
Instructors have time in between classes to talk to parents and
address their concerns. Be aware that some levels need to be
repeated to master all the skills. Please see your coach with any
concerns.
The first day of each lesson is generally termed as Level Evaluation
Day. At this time, instructors evaluate all participants in their
assigned classes to make certain they have been correctly enrolled;
if there is a problem, the instructor will discuss the best course of
action with the parent. Students are moved if there is space available
in the appropriate level of class.
There are no make-up lessons for missed skating classes.
If the class you wish to register for is filled, you may place your name
on a paid waiting list. We attempt to accommodate the demand for
skating lessons by adding new classes, however they may not be at
the same time/day as the waiting list class. Classes that do not meet
the minimum may be canceled or combined.
If you are unable to attend the last day of classes for testing, request
a progress card from your coach on the last day you attend.
Proper clothing may include:
* Helmet (not provided; required for Snowplow Sam 1-4, and strongly
recommended for beginners).
* Gloves (thin, not ski mittens).
* Fleece or light weight jacket.
* Skating dresses with tights or leggings/pants that are easy to move in.
* Loose or bulky clothing is not recommended.
