Competition Club

Learn Competition and Performance Skills

Competition Club is designed to train and prepare skaters currently enrolled in AAFSC's Learn to Skate program for participation in the Michigan Basic Skills Series. Through this class, skaters will learn and practice the individual elements required for their competition level and learn a choreographed program to music. Skaters will learn the process of competing and attend a local Basic Skills competition that will be attended by the coaching staff. The class is intended to introduce skaters to the excitement of competing and performing, improve individual skating skills, and foster feelings of accomplishment and good sportsmanship. There will be a parent information meeting prior to each competition to provide all of the necessary information to make the experience successful. When local competitions are not available, skaters will learn and practice performance skills that will be utilized during future competitions, exhibitions, and ice shows that will include learning fun choreography and musical interpretation.

LTS Synchro

Introductory Team Skating

LTS Synchro (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. Classes are Saturdays 9:15am to 10:05am (50-minutes class). Skaters must have passed Snowplow Sam 4, Basic 1, or higher.

Adaptive Skating

Skating for Children with Disabilities

The adaptive 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.
