SAM is pleased to offer a Learn-to-skate program for people of all ages at all skill levels. The Basic Skills program is administered by SAM and is designed by U.S. Figure Skating to give skaters the fundamental skills required for hockey, figure skating, and recreational skating.

The mission of SAM’s Basic Skills Program is to provide a goal-oriented program that encourages ice skating at all levels and to enhance the quality of skating skills at these levels.

The objectives of the program are:
 

  • To provide a fun and safe skating experience for the beginner as well as the more advanced skater
     
  • To teach correct technique of the simple basic elements
     
  • To promote health and physical fitness
     
  • To enable all participants to achieve the skills necessary to either skate for fun the rest of their lives or to move competently into the U.S. Figure Skating advanced test and/or competitive structure

WHO: Developed by U.S. Figure Skating and approved by the Professional Skaters Association (PSA), the Basic Skills Program is available to any member figure skating club, ice facility, recreation department, individual skating instructor, college, university or other organization. Club affiliation is not a requirement to use the program.

WHAT: This exciting program consists of Snowplow Sam, Basic Skills, Free Skate, Hockey, Adult, Dance, Synchronized, Pairs, Theatre On Ice, Artistry in Motion, Speed Skating and Special Olympics/Therapeutic group class curricula. Upon completion of each level, the skater should be equipped with the necessary knowledge and technique to advance to the next level.
