June 4 – August 2, 2019
We are very excited to announce a new program for our Learn to Skate Skaters! This summer we will be hosting the first session of our Competition and Performance Club!
The Competition and Performance Club is a unique experience designed to help prepare our Learn to Skate skaters for competition and performing. In this 8 week session, skaters will focus on learning the process of competing and at the end of the session the skaters will attend and compete in a Basic Skills competition, utilizing the skills they have learned. This opportunity will also help foster a sense of accomplishment in skaters, teach them good sportsmanship, and build friendships and a sense of camaraderie.
During the session skaters will have group lessons, as well as opportunities for one on one lessons with one of our club coaches. They will be working on off ice skills, warm ups, improving their individual skating skills and have a program to music personally choreographed for them to perform at competition.

The Competition and Performance Club is open to Current or Former Learn to Skate Skaters who have not previously been enrolled in the MPFSC Bridge Program. Registration is limited to 10 skaters, so be sure to sign up today!
