Snowplow Sam 1-4

Designed for children ages 6 and under

Learn To Skate USA endorsed by US Figure Skating, USA Hockey and US SpeedskatingThe Snowplow Sam levels are introductory classes divided into four progressive levels, allowing young children to build confidence while learning basic skating skills, fundamental movement skills, and physical literacy

Classes are taught in a safe and positive environment, incorporating fun and games, making class time an enjoyable experience.

In the last class of the session, each skater receives an Instructor EvaluationEvery skating element has a prescribed passing standard.

Based on the age and ability of the child after successful completion of Snowplow Sam 3, they can advance to Snowplow Sam 4 or Basic 2. Review the Snowplow Sam curriculum here. You can view video examples of the skills in the Learn to Skate USA app.

If you are new to the lesson environment, please register for Snowplow Sam 1 – even if your child has skated before! If necessary, we will move skaters to a more appropriate group after the first week.

Helmets are highly recommended for all beginning skaters and all skaters 6 and under!
