The mission of Learn to Skate USA is to provide a fun and positive experience that will instill a lifelong love of skating.

Objectives of Learn to Skate USA:
  • Teach children and adults the fundamentals of ice skating while building confidence and skills through each lesson.
  • Provide a progressive curriculum that ensures success from the first steps on the ice to the mastery of advanced skills.
  • Promote the health and fitness benefits of ice skating.
  • Equip each participant with the foundation necessary to reach their goal, be it recreational or competitive in nature.

Stemming from the rebrand of the Basic Skills Program, Learn to Skate USA offers an abundance of enhancements tailored toward improving the experience for program directors, rink manager, owners, instructors, parents and skaters.

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 six levels containing distinct skill sets.


Our youngest skaters enjoy the USFS “Snowplow Sam” curriculum, which introduces skating skills in a fun and manageable way for 3- and 4-year olds.


Our instructors have reached an advanced level of proficiency in figure skating and are registered instructors with U.S Figure Skating.


Our schedule includes two seven-week sessions in the fall and one in the winter, plus one two-week session in summer.  Fall and winter sessions meet on Sunday afternoons; the summer session meets for seven weekdays over a two-week period.  Each day’s lesson includes half an hour of instruction and a fifteen-minute “free skate” time.

Partial scholarships are available on a limited and confidential basis.  For more information, please contact Lisa McIntyre, LTS Coordinator, at  or 715-723-6207
