2023-24 Learn to Stake Program Details

Class options change by season. Please see the class schedule downloads above to specific classes.

Skating Levels

During the first class in each session, the Learn to Skate professionals decide the levels in which the skaters will be placed. Class assignments are dynamic and may be changed during the session if the skating professionals decide that another class may be more appropriate for the skater.

Skill assessments are done on a weekly basis so that there is no elaborate testing system at the end of each session. The "test-free" philosophy results in the skaters learning the skills quickly and more completely.

Teaching Professionals

The USM Learn to Skate program teaching professionals have been involved in ice skating for many years, and are masters in their fields and have perfected their own teaching guidelines. The skating professionals meet regularly throughout the season to share new and exciting ideas and to raise the level of teaching within the program.

All professionals are encouraged to maintain their memberships in the ISFSA, ISI, or PSA. Please contact Jill Herbst, or call 414.540.3306 with any questions.
