Adult Ice Skating Curriculum

What to expect

ADULT – Beginner to Advanced

The Adult curriculum is designed for both beginning and experienced adult skaters who wish to improve their skating skills. Participation in the program will help promote physical fitness and improve balance and coordination while teaching proper skating techniques. This is an exciting program for people who look to skating as an enjoyable part of a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Divided into six levels from basic skating to more advanced skills, adult skaters will progress at an individual rate while being challenged and motivated. Based on prior skating experience, adults may choose to begin at the level that best matches their skill base.

Off-ice orientation:

  • Equipment check: proper fit and lacing of skates, appropriate attire, safety concerns
  • Practice falling and recovery, walking in place, knee bends and one-foot balances in skates

Upon completion of the Adult 1-6 curriculum, adult skaters should feel confident with all fundamental skating skills and may choose to progress to more specialized areas of skating such as free skating, ice dancing, adult hockey leagues or synchronized skating.
