Welcome to Manitowoc County Figure Skating Club
The Learn-To-Skate USA program is our USFS structured program that teaches basic figure skating skills from the ages 4 through adult. Skaters participating in our Learn-To-Skate program become members of the USFS Learn-To-Skate program (not regular USFS or MCFSC club members) and receive a membership card and booklet explaining all the levels of the Learn-To-Skate program. (This booklet is generally received after the first session is completed)
Fall-Winter schedules are posted in September. Children Age 4 through 6 1/2 are placed initially in the Snowplow Sam 1 class and are assessed by our instructors in the first class. Children in the Snowplow Sam classes are required to wear a helmet (bike helmets are acceptable). Children 7 and up are placed in the Basic 1 class. Adults are evaluated and placed in a class according to their level.
During Each session, based on the skating class, skaters are instructed on the skills needed for that level. The last week of each session, the skaters are tested and given an evaluation sheet of their skating skills and advised if passed to the next level. If a skater passes to the next level they are rewarded with a badge. Skaters who have participated in other Learn-To-Skate programs or have had past skating experience should contact our program director, Chris Pawlowski. Once a skater is in Basic 4, they are eligible to become members of MCFSC. More information on MCFSC Club membership can be found on the Club Member page.
