The Owatonna Figure Skating Club follows the USFSA curriculum and guidelines given for our instructors to teach each skater to reach their highest potential in skating. The U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills program was created to be the best beginning ice-skating program in the world. It is designed to serve the needs of both recreational and competitive skaters. The curriculum keeps skaters enthusiastic about learning from the time they begin lessons until the time they reach their goals. Whether they want Olympic fame or to simply enjoy the recreational benefits of skating, the Basic Skills Program is the place to start!

During the Fall or Winter session skaters can participate in a small recital they learn with their class. There are no costumes to purchase, however, some skaters like to wear previous costumes from the Annual Spring Show just for fun. There is no charge for the recitals.

Our Club provides the Learn to Skate USA program for our Basic Skills skaters. We have skaters as young as three years old through adulthood. The program emphasizes proper technique of the basic skills of skating whether it be for figure skating or hockey. Our USFSA certified coaches are there for each skater to learn a variety of skills from falling down and getting back up, doing crossovers properly to freestyle figure skating jumps. We provide a fun professional coaching staff, and Junior Coaches are available for extra help.
YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN SKATES!
Skates can be rented for the season through Straight River Sports.
