FALL 2023 - LEARN TO SKATE ACADEMY
Thank you for expressing interest in our Academy!
Bakersfield Blades Learn-to-Skate Academy Fall Session will begin Saturday, August 26th through October 14th.The academy is an 8 week program. Sessions are held each Saturday and last for 30 minutes. There will be two sessions the day of. 11:45-12:15 and 12:15-12:45.
Figure and hockey skate rentals are provided. Please bring socks, warm clothing, and any other desired extra PPE.
All ages are welcome from tots to adults. Groups will be broken out each session based on age/experience.
No experience is required.
There will be two hours of freestyle session before the academy begins. Students may use this ice to warm up or practice skills they learned the week before, at an extra hourly charge to be paid to BBFSC. Please ensure you check in.
This is a great opportunity to learn basic skating skills and helps the skater decide if they would like to begin taking private lessons. BBFSC's coaches who provide private lessons will be coaching the Learn-To-Skate so you will be able to get to know and find the right fit for you and/or your children. Skaters may choose to take a more recreational route with their skating, or wish to join BBFSC to participate in showcases and competitions. The length of the course ensures students have ample time to explore the sport and decide to pursue taking private lessons, along with what coaching style works for them.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you would like to move forward with registration, please use the link below.
