Our Objectives

Teach the fundamentals of ice skating while building confidence and skills through each lesson. Provide a progressive curriculum that ensures success from the first steps on the ice to the mastery of advanced skills. Promote the health and fitness benefits of ice skating. Equip each participant with the foundation necessary to reach their goal, be it recreational or competitive in nature.

Lace those skates up.

Do you need to learn basic fundamentals to get started? Are you ready to master more challenging skating skills? Either way, our comprehensive approach on conquering individual elements gives you the skills, the knowledge, the urge to go far on the ice. And even further in life.

About the Program

A curriculum that offers something for everyone—from the first steps on the ice to mastering advanced techniques. Solid skill development based on the ABCs of basic athleticism—Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed. A progressive system that, upon completion of the program, allows skaters to confidently advance to more specialized areas of skating.

Skating goes beyond skating.

Mastering ice skating alone is amazing. Why stop there? Why not open yourself to the world of hockey, speed skating, figure skating, synchronized skating or Theater On Ice? Perhaps one will skate its way into your heart. Through our passion and unwavering commitment, we today are recognized as the world’s best ice skating program, changing the lives of so many who said yes to the challenges and rewards.  Ice skating is a great way to stay physically fit and have fun. The WFSC Program is a great place to start.

Information on private lessons

The next step….

Private lessons are great for any age and skill level. We have a group of well qualified instructors who take on skaters interested in private instruction, including hockey players. With private lessons your skater gets undivided attention with their chosen coach to work on learning new skills and improving. Private lessons are also a great choice for those who are interested in testing and competition.

 

Why Private Lessons?

There are many reasons to begin private instruction in skating:

·       Skater is struggling to master certain skills

·       Skater would like to improve quicker

·       Skater learns best in an individual environment

·       Skater is interested in getting more involved in skating, competitions, USFS Testing, Theatre On Ice, Synchronized skating, etc.

·       Hockey players looking to improve their skating skills

·       Skaters who would like to continue lessons throughout the summer at other locations once the Wallace Civic Center is closed in the Spring

 

How do they work?

Private lessons are offered on Freestyle ice time as well as other skating locations. Once you have chosen a coach, an arrangement is made between skater and coach for times and days that work best. Lessons can be arranged for any length of time (25 minutes or the full 50 minutes).

How much does it cost?

Private instruction is typically more expensive than group class options but the amount of lessons and their duration can be tailored by the coach to fit what the budget allows.

·       Coaches- Coaches set their own hourly rates and are paid directly by the skater/parent for their services. Please inquire with the coaching staff for specific rates.

·       Ice Time- Freestyle ice time is paid for at the front desk. You can sign up to do “walk-ons” and pay weekly or you can sign up for a full session and pay a flat rate. The Wallace Figure Skating Club has three free style sessions. There are other times available for free style sessions through FMC on Thursday nights and at other local rinks.

Saturday Free style ice (WFSC):

8:30-9:30 – 60 minute free style session

9:30-10:30 – 60 minute free style session

11:20-11:50 – 30 minute free style session

The total cost of each lesson is a combination of the rate paid directly to the coach and the ice time paid directly to the rink.

How do I pick a coach?

Choosing a coach can be difficult, especially if you are new to the skating world. All of our coaches are very qualified with many years of experience and various qualifications. Often if you have been a part of our program, your skater or the parent may have developed a report with a certain coach, which is usually a good place to start. If you are interested in lessons but are still unsure about who would be the best fit, please talk to a board member at the front desk.

Please feel free to contact any of our coaching staff if you have any questions regarding availability, open free style ice times, the cost of private lessons and how they work generally. We are more than happy to help guide you through the next step in Figure Skating.
