Blazers Ice Centre welcomes employees of the University of Oklahoma and families to Learn to Skate classes!

LEARN TO SKATE USA is a national program created to provide a fun and safe skating experience for learners ages 4+. The objectives of the program are:

  • To teach correct technique for basic elements
  • To promote health and physical fitness
  • To enable all participants to achieve the skills necessary to either skate for fun the rest of their lives or to move competently into the U.S. Figure Skating or USA Hockey competitive structures.

This is the only recognized instructional program of its kind in the country. LEARN TO SKATE USA is endorsed by US Figure Skating, USA Hockey, and US Speedskating. Our Coaches are certified LTS USA members.

WHEN IS LEARN TO SKATE?

LEARN TO SKATE USA runs year-round at Blazers Ice Centre! The class is scheduled in 5-week sessions, and students may attend either one or two classes each week. Our LTS USA program meets on Tuesdays and Saturdays. All dates are listed below. Students may enroll on or before the first class of any session.

IMPORTANT: Tuesday/Saturday LTS Classes are divided by skill level. Intermediate / Advanced levels will skate first, followed by Beginner / Introductory levels.

All sessions must be paid in full at time of registration. We reserve the right to refuse participation and future registration to any participant in any program offered at this facility.

Please do not wait until the session is over to re-register for the next session! Blazers Ice Centre does not hold spots for program participants.

Sign up for the skater’s current level. If changes are needed, our coaches will place your skater in the appropriate skill group, and update our records after evaluation week.

LTS PRACTICE ON PUBLIC SESSIONS

Blazers Ice Centre offers free skating for LTS students on the public sessions following all LTS classes. Students who wish to practice the skills they learned in class are invited to stay and practice for the entire public session that follows their class.

Public sessions are not included for days not on the LTS calendar, or classes that the student did not attend. Any public session that does not immediately follow a LTS class must be paid at the front desk.

CLASS DATES

Class dates do not always run consecutively, major holidays and competition dates are not included in the schedule. Please check the schedule to confirm when classes are planned.

NO REFUNDS or CREDITS

There will be no makeup classes, reduced price for missed classes or refunds due to inability to attend class for any reason. Blazers Ice Centre reserves the right to reschedule, change, or cancel a program due to uncontrollable circumstances. We will do our best to offer a make-up if possible.
