ISI is a Learn-To-Skate program used all over the United States.  The program provides a curriculum with a logical progression of skill development.  This program is used as a base for NUFSC group lessons.  There are guidelines for each level.

ISI levels are: Beginner 1 (Tot 1 & 2 combined), Beginner 2 (Tot 3 & 4 combined), Pre-Alpha, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, FS 1, FS 2, FS 3, FS 4, FS 5, FS 6, FS 7, FS 8, FS 9, FS 10.

Skaters who choose to compete will be required to be either an ISI or USFS member.  Competitors are grouped by both test level and by age. ISI competitions are located all over the country. We host our annual ISI competition, Fall Festival, in November.
