Learn To Skate USA

Our popular Learn to Skate Basic Skills Program is now called Learn to Skate USA. It has been restructured to better fit the needs of all skaters and is designed to teach children and adults the fundamentals of ice skating, build confidence, ensure success through a progressive curriculum, and give each participant the foundation necessary to reach their recreational or competitive goals. Learn to Skate USA is backed by US Figure Skating, USA Hockey and US Speedskating. Register through the ISD 728 Community Education website at www.728communityed.com or call 763-241-3520.

Registration deadline for classes is generally three days prior to start of the session; however, should classes max out; they may close earlier. There is no pro-rating of registration fees for missed classes and no refunds once sessions start, except for extenuating circumstances. If minimum quota per class is not met, classes may be cancelled or combined with another group.

Note: Winter and Spring classes fill quickly, so register early as you are not guaranteed a spot if wait-listed.
