Skating School ABC

1 OR 2 TIMES: Skating school groups Tenavat and Koululaiset are practising once a week. The groups Stars, Salkov and Flip are for skaters who can make more demanding skating skills and they practice twice a week on ice. They also have off-ice practice once a week.  

ABSENCE AND REPLACING THE LESSONS: Our wish is that a skater regularly takes part in the lesson he/she has enrolled to. If the skater is ill or for example on vacation and not able to take part in his/her own lesson, he/she can have a replacement class in another skating school lesson. Please inform the trainers before the replacing lesson that you're from another lesson!


ACHIEVEMENT BADGES: Before Christmas and in the end of spring the skaters have the possibility to accomplish skill level. We have our own achievement tests and according to them the skater get badges to put in his/her own exercise-book. Take good care of your exercisebook. It is nice way to follow your own skating process.
