Classes offered at AZ Ice Arcadia

Snowplow Sam 1-4: If your child is ages 3-5 and has never skated, this is a great starting point to learn the basics of skating. Snowplow Sam classes are bases on the USFS Basic Skills Program. Children will advance through levels 1-3 with each level gradually becoming more challenging.

Basic 1-6: These classes introduce skaters to the fundamentals of the sport. These levels cover forward and backward skating, stops, edges, turning and crossovers, as well as fundamental jump and spin techniques. Upon completion skaters can advance to our Freeskate program.

Pre Freeskate: Formerly Basic 7 & 8, the prefreeskate curriculum prepares skaters to enter the freeskate levels, teaching them waltz jumps, fundamental spin technique and more.

Freeskate Advanced & Elite: These classes will cover the core curriculum of the U.S. Figure Skating Freeskate badges. However, we have redesigned it so that skaters work on all of the necessary skills with multiple instructors to prepare them for semi-private and private lessons. This is the point where the skater can decide between competitive and recreational approach to the sport of figure skating.

Adult / Teen 1-6: The Adult/Teen curriculum is designed for the beginner adult/ teen skater. It will promote physical fitness and improve balance and coordination while learning proper skating techniques. Although divided into levels, the adult/ teen skater will progress at an individual rate while being challenged and motivated.
