East Grand Forks Parks & Recreation

Basic 1-6

The Snowplow Sam/Basic Skills/Freestyle program is designed to introduce individual skaters to a variety of skills. Using the U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills Learn-to-Skate Program, our skaters learn all of the fundamentals of figure skating.

Any new skaters in Kindergarten or above may choose to enroll in Basic 1 or Hockey 1.  New skaters not yet in kindergarten must begin in Snow Plow Sam.

The objectives of the program are:

  • To provide a fun and safe skating experience for the beginner as well as the more advanced skater
  • To teach correct technique of the basic elements of skating
  • To develop a finer degree of coordination and balance
  • To promote physical fitness
  • To have fun!
