The Skating Academy, The Skating Club of Boston’s Learn to Skate USA program, opened their fall registration last week. As New England’s premier ice skating school, The Skating Academy offers top-quality instruction and small group ice skating lessons for children and adults using the Learn to Skate USA curriculum endorsed by U.S. Figure Skating and USA Hockey.
The Skating Academy offers classes across nine campuses including Boston’s iconic Boston Common Frog Pond and at the all-new Norwood skating facility. Other locations include Boston/Newton area, Boston’s North End, Brookline, Dedham, Fenway, Somerville and West Roxbury.
The Skating Academy teaches both figure and hockey-style skating focusing on the correct techniques and benefits of physical fitness. Participants skate for recreational purposes and to advance in the competitive worlds of figure skating and hockey. In addition, The Skating Academy features professional coaches some of whom are former Olympic athletes.
“As a former Team USA member, Olympian and a current coaching professional, one of my greatest joys is teaching the next generation of skaters the proper fundamentals. There is no better place to learn how to skate than The Skating Academy,” said Simon Shnapir, a coach at The Skating Academy and 2014 Olympian.
