What is the Learn To Skate USA fee?

Did you know?

Brooklyn Blades on Ice is part of Learn To Skate USA – which is the national organization that develops the curriculum for our Basic Skills program.

It is how we can provide achievement badges, certificates, and sanction events that our members can participate in.

Each member of Brooklyn Blades on Ice is required to pay a once a year fee ($17) to cover the cost of membership. *Note this is a separate organization from U.S. Figure Skating, so USFS members are required to pay for LTS USA membership if they are members of both organizations.

Congratulations to our skaters and coaches!

While our rink may not have had ice this summer, our skaters and coaches were busy making us proud!

On August 5, 28 skaters from both our Brooklyn Blades on Ice staff and members of the Brooklyn Figure Skating Club competed in the U.S. Figure Skating National Showcase competition in Brighton, Michigan.

Our Production Ensemble group placed 9th in a very competitive field of skaters from all over the country – and they rocked their ‘Dazed and Confused’ 1970s themed routine!

Congratulations also to Vivian Gabbard, Crystal Greene, Melissa Greene, Anastasia Migyanko and Chloe O’Brien for great skates in the solo and duet events!
