The Northern Kentucky Ice Center offers Learn to Skate classes designed around the US Figure Skating (USFS) Basic Skills Program. USFS is the national governing body of skating on ice in the United States. The basic skills program is designed for both recreational and competitive skaters alike. The program offers a fun and safe skating experience for beginner through advanced skaters. Classes are offered all year long and are designed for skaters of all ages (including Adults) and all skating abilities.
Our Learn to Skate curriculum includes Tiny Tots 1-3, Basic Skills 1-4, and Adult and Teen classes. First time students, ages 3-5, should register for Tiny Tot 1. First time students, ages 6-11, should register for Basic 1. Students ages 12+ and adults should register for the teen/adult class.
A student must successfully complete their test level before they can graduate to the next level. All skaters are evaluated at the end of each 6 week session. At the conclusion of the session, your skater may not pass to the next level. This is common, especially at the higher levels. To help your skater improve you can bring them to Public sessions to practice. Private lessons are also available for skaters of all ages and abilities. Private lessons can be arranged directly with any of the coaches on our staff.
