We are here to help!
Skating can be a lot to understand whether you are the skater or the parent. Please use these resources to help you and your skater! If you are a new skating parent, we will gladly set you up with an experienced skating parent to answer questions from their point of view to help you along the way. Welcome to our skating family at NUFSC! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and we will also help you connect with other parents.
Skater Practice Checklists
Have a skater that doesn’t know what to practice during private ice when they are not with their coach? Choose their level and print out a checklist of test moves to practice. Ask your coach to add additional items to practice at the bottom.
ISI also has videos to show the required elements for levels Pre-Alpha and up at: https://www.skateisi.org/programs/testing-requirements/
Junior Coach Application
Applicants must be 16 years of age or older. After review of application and approval by the skating director, 15 hours of volunteering at group classes and 15 hours of shadowing a coach at private ice will be required. Following approval of the hours, the board and skating director will interview the applicant to be able to coach private ice lessons. During the process, applicants will be required to have some mentor meetings with the skating director to touch on certain coaching topics.
We hope you find coaching and the junior coach program to be a rewarding process! Please contact Ellie for questions!
