General Info:

• The Juneau Skating Club Figure Skating Program consists of group classes, club ice, competitions, USFS testing, shows, and performance opportunities.  Skaters are welcome to register for figure skating activities after completing our learn to skate program or equivalent and registering as a member of the Juneau Skating Club.

• Skaters may choose what kind of classes they want to take and how many times a week they wish to skate.  We recommend skating 3-6 days a week with additional off ice activities that assist in the development of endurance, flexibility, core and dynamic strength, and performance and musicality.  We encourage all skaters to have one primary JSC coach.  This coach can assist a skater and their parents in deciding what are appropriate classes, developing a good on and off ice schedule, and helping tailor a program specific to the skater’s interests and needs.

• Skaters are encouraged to participate in competitions, skating shows, and USFS testing.   More information about these activities can be found on the Annual Events pages.

Club ice gives skaters the opportunity to work independently on skills including jumps and spins, dance, Moves in the Field and competition or performance programs.  It is also an opportunity for skaters to receive private lessons.

Jumps & Spins classes focus on teaching proper technique when executing the various figure skating jumps and spins.

Moves in the Field consist of a variety of elements that teach a skater footwork, body control, edge control and use of ice.  For competitive figure skaters proficiency in the MIF elements is a requirement.
