General Info:

• The Juneau Skating Club Figure Skating Program consists of group classes, club ice, competitions, USFS testing, shows, and performance opportunities.  Skaters are welcome to register for figure skating activities after completing our basic skills program or equivalent and registering as a member of the Juneau Skating Club.

• Skaters may choose what kind of classes they want to take and how many times a week they wish to skate.  We recommend skating 3-6 days a week with additional off ice activities that assist in the development of endurance, flexibility, core and dynamic strength, and performance and musicality.  We encourage all skaters to have one primary JSC coach.  This coach can assist a skater and their parents in deciding what are appropriate classes, developing a good on and off ice schedule, and helping tailor a program specific to the skater’s interests and needs.

• Skaters are encouraged to participate in competitions, skating shows, and USFS testing.   More information about these activities can be found on the Annual Events pages.

Club ice gives skaters the opportunity to work independently on skills including jumps and spins, dance, Moves in the Field and competition or performance programs.  It is also an opportunity for skaters to receive private lessons.

Club Ice (High) gives skaters the opportunity to work independently focusing on jumps, spins and programs.  It is also an opportunity for skaters to receive private lessons.  To register for Club Ice (High) you must have passed a USFS Freeskate test and be working on your axel or have the figure skating coordinator’s permission.

 

Jumps & Spins class focuses on teaching proper technique when executing the various figure skating jumps and spins.

Moves in the Field consist of a variety of elements that teach a skater footwork, body control, edge control and use of ice.  For competitive figure skaters proficiency in the MIF elements is a requirement.  Currently this class is only open to youth Pre-Preliminary and Preliminary along with Adult Pre-Bronze and Bronze levels.

Moves in the Field consist of a variety of elements that teach a skater footwork, body control, edge control and use of ice.  For competitive figure skaters proficiency in the MIF elements is a requirement.  Registration in the Moves in the Field (Intro) class is open to youth Pre-Preliminary and Preliminary along with Adult Pre-Bronze and Bronze levels.

Synchronized Skating class lasts one hour. The skaters will work as a group to learn formations and movement patterns. This class is an excellent upper-body workout as skaters use their arms to control the movement of the group.

Mini clinics are 15-minute group classes that will focus on developing a skater’s precision, artistry and power.

Figure Skaters are welcome to drop in to club ice sessions.  The fee is $20 per drop in.  Drop in passes are for Club Ice sessions only.  They may be used for other figure skating classes with coaches permission only.  Drop in passes must be given to figure skating coach or ice monitor prior to skating.  Skaters unable to provide paper drop in pass prior to skating will not be allowed to skate.  No cash, checks or “IOU’s” excepted for payment of drop in ice.

Drop-in passes are purchased from the products page in our registration system.  You must be signed into your user account to access the products page.  Once signed in you will see “Purchase Other Products” on the left side menu list of the registration page.  Passes may be printed form your purchase invoice.
