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.

We will also be offering our popular Saturday classes for skaters Free Skate 1 and above:

Performance Ensemble – This class is open to all skaters at the Free Skate 1 and above level and ages 18 and under. During the Fall-Winter- Spring sessions our class meets on Saturday afternoons. Skaters work towards performing routines to music of different genres that will be performed at a Cleveland Monsters Game,  skating exhibitions and our annual spring show! Participants are required to purchase a performance costume. (Saturdays 2:15-2:45pm)

Power and Edges for Figure Skating – This class is designed to teach skaters how to maximize their speed and power on the ice by using different crossover and edge drills. This class is also good for building up endurance and agility.  Open to all skaters level Free Skate 1 and above. (Saturdays 2:45-3:15pm)

Hope to see you on the ice next week!
