 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.

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.


The Eau Claire Figure Skating Club is pleased to offer Mike Branco Memorial Learn to Skate Scholarships.  The scholarships are available on a case by case basis with a limit of two per session unless the inclusion of the scholarship skaters will necessitate additional instructors or sessions.  In the case there are more applicants than available scholarships priority will be given to lower level skaters and/or first time applicants.  The availability of scholarships and application requirements/process will be posed on the club we-site.  To qualify, a request must be made to the LTS coordinator with completed DPI form as the only supporting document needed.  The LTS director and LTS coordinator will approve applications.


Please contact Mary Summers (LTS Director) or Rachel Brand (LTS Coordinator).
