Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform jumps, spins, footwork and other challenging moves on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908.
Skaters can pursue figure skating at an advanced level after they have completed Learn to Skate. Here at Cockburn Ice Arena, we have a broad range of professional coaches who specialise in teaching from beginners, right up to our elite international skaters!
About figure skating, private ice time, coaching and memberships
MASTERED LEARN TO SKATE?
You are now ready to skate at a higher level, whether it be competitively, for enjoyment, or to further your skills on the ice. You are ready for private tuition on ice that is put aside just for you! You will get more one-on-one with your coach, access to ice put aside just for figure skating tuition, and you will still be able to attend general skating sessions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Unlike Learn to Skate, coaching fees and ice time fees are separate once a skater has advanced to this level. Tuition is now one on one instead of in a class environment, and the ice time is put aside exclusively for this advanced training.
Coaching/tuition: Skaters must book private lessons with their coach (coaches must be paid directly).
Membership and Ice Time: Skaters must purchase a membership from Cockburn Ice Arena in order to gain access to private figure skating sessions, which generally take place early morning or in the afternoon on most days. These sessions are for members only (no general session skating) and can be used for practice as well as booked lessons.
