Skill Progression

Recommended for skaters to enter at the Tot or Beginner levels to build a good foundation for recreational skating, figure skating or hockey.  For skaters interested in entering hockey, the Learn to Play class is available once either Snowplow Sam 3 or Basic 1 is achieved.  Once Basic 3 is passed additional opportunities and classes are available depending on the skater's interest.  Skating twice a week or more is recommended for improved skill acquisition.

For skaters looking to progress at a faster rate try the NEW Booster for Basics class!  A 50-minute class on the Main Ice designed to cover current skills, review skills, and introduce new skills at a faster pace through drills and increased repetition.  Basic 1 - 6 skill levels combined into groups.

Visit the the Figure Skating or Arts on Ice pages for additional class and performance opportunities.

Visit the Bowling Green Youth Hockey Association website once your skater is ready to join a hockey team.
