2020- 21 Bridge Program Schedule
Update as of 8/14/2020
- The Mt Pleasant ICE Arena is still closed due to a state mandate. Once the rink let’s us know they are allowed to open we will send out our “Return to the Ice” plan for Bridge. We miss all of you and hope to see you soon!
- Annual Membership Fee: Required
- Cost: $18 annually (Membership year runs July 1-June 30)
- This is an additional fee that will be charged once per year and is added on to the registration cost for the student’s first skating session of the season.
- Covers the cost of a US Figure Skating Learn to Skate USA membership.
- Skaters will receive a membership card, a copy of Learn to Skate USA: The Magazine, a Skater’s Record Book, a Parents Handbook and a welcome letter by mail once the registration has been processed by USFS.
- Coaching Fees: $6.00 per 20 minute lesson. You will receive a separate bill from your skater’s coach for this charge.
- Skate Rental:
- If you do not have your own skates, rentals are available from the ICE Arena for $1.00 per class.

Make up Class Policy:
Students may have the opportunity to make-up a bridge lesson. Make-up lessons can only occur within the current class session and only when arranged in advance with the skater’s coach. If the students coach does not have the availability to hold a make up lesson, the skater may make arrangements to come and practice on their own.
