FAQS

 

What makes your school different than any other skating school?

World Class Coaching! Modern scientific technique, hands-on instruction and skill correction, a maximum ratio of 6:1 and passionate and experienced coaches! We get results.

 


Which class should I register my child for?

There is a basic description of each class on our website. Questions? Please call the office. Each class has a Program Director supervising the groups at all times to ensure that your child is in the appropriate group based on their age and ability.



My child is the fastest skater in his group. Can he move?

Sometimes you may see that your child is the fastest in their group. The athletes are arranged by foundational level determined by the Directors, and will be adjusted at their discretion if needed. By focusing on the foundation of an athlete we ensure they progress year after year.



Do you offer private lessons?

funSKATE

Private skating lessons at  funSKATE/PowerSkating Academy are an earned privilege. Working one on one with a coach is an intense, unique experience that can take the ready athlete to all new levels of performance. We offer private lessons to mature, elite competitive athletes, outside of regular class hours.

 

Skaters who are new to funSKATE/PowerSkating Academy, and young children, should begin their lessons with us in our exclusive weekly classes to master their foundations through correct technique and repetitive exercises. Once a rock-solid foundation is in place, the private lesson experience may be right for peak performance.



Do you offer adult beginner lessons and lessons for adult hockey players?

We do offer lessons for adults. Our adult groups are formed based on interest, and as such may not be available in every class. Please contact the office for more information.



Do you offer drop-ins?

The funSKATE/PowerSkating Academy does not offer drop-ins. We believe that drop-ins are based on money, not development, and are disruptive to our classes. Imagine signing up for one piano lesson.



Why do I have to pay for classes if I cannot attend?

We prepare for each class by making sure we have the right coach for everyone enrolled. All classes are properly staffed maintaining our 6:1 student to coach ratio. Coaches are hired on a contract basis for each class in the session. You may be absent, but the coach is still there and ice costs and ice agreements must be met.



What kind of hockey equipment, hockey skates or figure skates should I buy and where

Skates are the most important piece of equipment in hockey and for your lessons. The quality and proper fit directly affect your progress. Skates make a difference! We highly recommend going to a sport specific store that spends time fitting you and/or your child properly.
