Summer Camp 2017 Registration Information

Our summer fun skating camp features the North Atlantic Figure Skating Club’s unique teaching concept in a concentrated and affordable setting to help students of all ages and skating levels improve their skating skills. Now is the time for all skaters to enjoy a full week of concentrated skating at Family Ice Center in Falmouth, ME. Many skaters can accomplish more in one week of skating every day than they would normally achieve skating once week over a period of several months. In addition to working with students to improve their badge skills, our camp instructors will also introduce Ice Dancing, Artistry in Motion to the skaters. So don’t miss out on fun and excitement of our summer camp. Skaters will learn new skills, brush up on old skills and have a great time working with other skaters and our dedicated and talented coaching staff. Skaters will be grouped by skating test level.

Spring 2017 Learn to Skate Program Information

 

 


The North Atlantic Figure Skating Club's Learn to Skate USA Program is professionally designed to:

  • Provide a fun and safe skating experience for all levels of skaters, from beginners to advanced skaters.
  • Teach correct technique of basic skating elements.
  • Give participants the skills necessary to either skate for fun or move competently into the U.S. Figure Skating advanced test and/or competitive structure.
  • Promote health and physical fitness.

Group skating lessons are offered during five sessions from September through June on Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings. All classes are taught at Family Ice Center in Falmouth, Maine and are taught by professional instructors/coaches certified by the U.S. Figure Skating Association with assistance from NAFSC Jr. Coaches.  Skaters are divided into groups by age and ability.  Skaters will be tested as they progress through the program.

Learn to Skate USA Program:

As of June 1, 2016, USFSA has rebranded their Basic Skills program and it is now Learn to Skate USA. You can learn more about the changes at www.learntoskateusa.com

Each year that you have registered with the NAFSC Learn to Skate Program, your lesson cost included the $12 membership fee for the USFSA Basic Skills Membership.  Under the new Learn to Skate USA program, you have the option to register directly through the Learn to Skate USA direct registration link for this $12 membership fee ($1.00 processing fee will also be added on for this option) or continue to have NAFSC take care of the registration for you.   If you choose to register directly with Learn to Skate USA, after that is done, you will be able to be directed to the link for our class offerings and sign up information.  Because this might be a different and confusing option at first, please know that we will continue to process LTS class registrations in the manner in which we have always done and we are happy handle all sign ups and membership sign ups/renewals until we have a chance to provide education on the new system and train all parents that are interested in using it.  Or we can continue doing it for you if you would like to continue in the way we have always done.  We are here to make this transition as seamless as possible for everyone so that we can all continue to enjoy the great skating programs NAFSC has to offer! 

Please take a few moments to check out the Learn to Skate USA Program and see all the changes!  And please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all!  We are here to help!
