Are you looking to try your skating skills in a competition?

All Brooklyn Blades on Ice Learn-To-Skate members who have passed at least Snowplow 2 level are eligible to participate in a Basic Skills competition right here at our home rink – the Brooklyn Autumn Skills competition.  This is a good place to start if this is your first-ever event!

You don’t have to be a member of the figure skating club to participate, but we highly recommend scheduling some private lessons with one of our staff coaches to help you prepare!

Here’s the competition info:

Brooklyn Autumn Skills – November 17-18, 2018

Registration & Competition Info HERE

Registration deadline is October 19, 2018

If you are interested – talk to your LTS instructor today!

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.

You can learn more about Learn To Skate USA HERE

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!
