Life Skills

Goal-setting, discipline, perseverance, and lessons about competing with integrity, winning fairly and losing gracefully are skills that are valuable in all aspects of life.

Building Community

Pursuing learning and reaching goals in the company of others creates a sense of community and a willingness to give back to one’s larger community.

Creativity/Innovation

The collaborating process between coach and athlete, instructor and skater, ice and movement is integral to innovative physical and aesthetic self-expression.
