Happy Summer to all of our Learn To Skate families!!

Though the weather is getting warmer and the rinks are getting colder, COVID-19 has really put a damper on our summer LTS plans. As a club, the safety of our skaters and families is our main concern. Rinks are just starting to open, and protocols are being put in place to make it a safe environment, but as you know, Learn To Skate involves group lessons and sometimes help from the coach in getting around the ice. According to United States Figure Skating, these actions put people at risk (it is hard to help someone up from 6 feet away!).

However…there is a bright future…and it starts in September!

We plan to restart our Monday night lessons in the Fall. Watch for information in mid-August.

We miss you and hope to see you soon.

Any questions about the LTS, please contact Craig at lts.wfsc@gmail.com.

We have an opportunity you will want to take advantage of.
