Competition Club

Learn about Competition

Learn-to-Compete is designed to train and prepare skaters currently enrolled in AAFSC's Learn-to-Skate program for participation in the Michigan Basic Skills competition series. Through this program skaters will prepare for the "skills" event at their individual level, learn the process of competing and attend a local Basic Skills competition. The program is intended to introduce skaters to the excitement of competition, improve individual skating skills, and foster feelings of accomplishment and good sportsmanship. There will be a parent information meeting prior to the competition to provide all the information necessary to make your child's competition successful.

Registration includes participation fee for Holiday Exhibition (Sunday December 15th). There will be a parent information meeting prior to the competition to provide all the information necessary to make your child's competition successful.

 

 

Basic Skills Synchronized Skating

Introductory Team Skating

Basic Skills Synchronized Skating (formerly known as Introductory Hockettes) is a non-competitive exhibition team that performs only in Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club events at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube. This team is designed for skaters to have the opportunity to try skating with their friends and to learn the values of teamwork, discipline and confidence without asking for the commitment level needed for competitive teams. The Basic Skills Synchronized Skating team begins in September and practices on Saturdays from 11:15am to 12:05pm. Skaters must have passed Basic Skills 2 and be enrolled in Basic 3 and above to skate on the team.

Therapeutic Skating

Skating for Children with Disabilities

The therapeutic skating class is for young people with special needs. This program developed by the US Figure Skating Association has been proven to improve fitness, strength, balance, flexibility, socialization, and self-esteem.
