Junior Academy is for beginner level skaters who are interested in skating more than one time a week. During this session, skaters are introduced to the different facets of the discipline in a group setting. Often, these skaters will become friends for the rest of their skating careers.
Parents of Junior Academy skaters are presented with information to help them navigate the sport. Topics may include finding a coach, going to competitions, the USFS testing structure, participating in shows, where to buy apparel, etc.
During the 2017-2018 season, skaters who enroll in Junior Academy will receive a one-time private
booster lesson free of charge. Each new skater will be assigned to a professional instructor who will teach that skater for this free 15-minute
booster lesson. This private lesson is offered to help the student experience one-on-one instruction and become familiar with the club's coaching group. The coaches at LSA are independent contractors and donate this service at their own discretion.
Also, new for the 2017-2018 season, students enrolled in the Junior Academy program will be entered into drawings for free items, which may include but are not necessarily limited to free competition entries, free Nutcracker on Ice registrations/tickets and discount coupons at Podium Perfect Skatewear (a local skate and skating apparel retailer).
Skater who are interested in being a part of Junior Academy but who cannot attend one of the days may still be able to participate in this great program. To find out how, visit our Learn-to-Skate desk or .
