Park Rapids Figure Skating Club
This program was designed to help children develop preliminary coordination and strength necessary to maneuver on skates. Some of the elements in this section are the same as those in the Basic Skills levels, but the degree to which the skater is expected to perform the elements is to a much lesser extent. Time with Snowplow Sam will allow children to be comfortable on the ice at a level consistent with their physical development.
Group Lesson program teaches the skills needed to ice skate whether it be for a future of recreational, hockey, or figure skating. Designed by U.S. Figure Skating, the Learn to Skate program is a beginning ice skating program that is fun, challenging and rewarding. Participation in the program will enable beginning skaters of all ages to learn the fundamentals of the sport and begin a lifetime commitment to health and fitness. The program teaches ice skating in 6 levels of basic skills using a badge system. The skater earns a badge for each level he/she passes.
For those wishing to continue in Figure Skating we offer the Freeskate Program. This section has a Pre-Freeskate level then moves into the Freeskate program. The Freeskate program teaches 6 levels of advanced Figure Skating skills including jumps, spins, and moves in the field.
