The coaches provide high quality instruction for the skaters. Skaters assess their progress in figure skating through periodic testing and competitions. Testing consists of specific routines with requirements for each. While testing allows a skater to judge his or her progress against certain standards and criteria, competitions are a way of measuring a skater’s progress in comparison to a group of skater’s at a designated level. Skaters who have passed the Basic 6 Skills are able to test at other USFSA rinks if interested. See board member in charge of testing and competition with any questions. CFSC skaters can compete in state, regional, sectional, national, and international competitions.
The Chippewa Figure Skating Club will provide professional figure skating coaches for group lessons. While the number of skaters in each small lesson group may differ, every attempt will be made to offer equal lesson time to all skaters in the Club at each scheduled group lesson. A skill check or “report card” will be kept for each skater in Learn To Skate and Junior Club by the group lesson coach. This will be available for the parent and skater to review and will be used by substitute and/or lesson coaches to continue to advance a skater’s skills during the season.
