ABOUT THE SERIES
The upcoming 2017 Season will be our fourteenth season as a “Series” ! USFS Basic Skills has now been rebranded as Learn to Skate USA and is endorsed by US Figure Skating, USA Hockey and US Speed Skating.
We started the “Series” concept here in South Florida and it has been extremely beneficial for U.S. Figure Skating all across the nation. Series competitions have started in many states all over the country!
The 2017 Season will have four great competitions at Kendall Ice Arena, Palm Beach SkateZone, Pines Ice Arena, and Palm Beach IceWorks. There are many exciting events for all levels from Snowplow Sam (Tots) to Preliminary levels. As usual we have both Test Track and Well Balanced Categories for the higher level competitors and events for adults as well.
