Group skating classes are the place for beginners to start learning to skate.

Learn to Skate USA is the only ice skating program endorsed by U.S. Figure Skating, USA Hockey, and U.S. Speedskating.  Learn to Skate USA offers every participant a rewarding experience rooted in the lifelong benefits of ice skating.

The Learn to Skate USA program was created to be the best beginning ice-skating program in the world. It is designed to serve the needs of both recreational and competitive skaters. The curriculum keeps skaters enthusiastic about learning from the time they begin lessons until the time they reach their goals. Whether they want Olympic fame or to simply enjoy the recreational benefits of skating, the Basic Skills Program is the place to start!


Our lessons are suitable for anyone interested in learning fundamentals of ice skating.  Learn to Skate students go on to enjoy recreational skating, figure skating, and hockey.   Our program uses the Learn to Skate USA Basic Skills curriculum. This is a progressive curriculum in which skaters work their way through various levels containing distinct skill sets.


Group lessons are offered for virtually every age and every level in 7 week sessions on Sundays throughout the year (exception – summer 7 days in June).  Each session is $85 and includes:

  • 30 minute group lesson and 15 minutes of free practice time per week
  • Membership to Learn to Skate USA
  • Learn to Skate USA record book
  • Learn to Skate USA badges upon mastering each level
  • Evaluation with recommendation for next session by our professional skating instructors registered with the U.S. Figure Skating Association


Currently, our Learn to Skate classes are on hold for the summer as a result of the Corona Virus.  We will resume lessons once it is deemed safe to do so. Thank you for your patience.

  • Skaters should arrive at least 15 minutes early to check-in, lace up, and warm up.
  • Parents must remain at the rink while their child(ren) are participating in the Learn to Skate lesson.
  • During the 15-minute practice time, one parent or other responsible adult may skate with each Learn to Skate participant.  We cannot allow non-adult siblings on the ice unless they are registered in Learn to Skate.  Everyone on the ice must wear skates.
  • Parents are not required to skate during practice times.  ECFSC skaters are available to skate with any participants who need extra help or supervision.  Please let the coordinator or head instructor know that you would like an assistant for your skater.
  • Parents may not enter the ice during the regular lesson time, unless they are also Learn to Skate students.  This is a U.S. Figure Skating (Learn to Skate USA) policy and we cannot make exceptions.
  • No refunds are given for misses lessons.  And, we do not offer make up lessons.  If you must drop the class after the first session, we will not provide a refund but will credit you to a future session.



Skates run between ½ to 1 sizes smaller than a street shoe.  Skates should be laced firmly to provide support and feel snug WITHOUT a thick sock.  Skates should be professionally sharpened.  Skate rental is not available during Learn to Skate.  Skaters must bring their own skates.  Please do not use adjustable “grow with you” skates. 

Clothing:  Skaters should dress in loose layers to provide warmth yet maintain flexibility.  Mittens or gloves may be necessary.  We do not require helmets but many skaters do wear one, especially in the beginning levels.  Bicycle helmets work fine.
