Border Blades Figure Skating Club

Welcome to Border Blades Skating Academy!

Border Blades Skating Academy is our version of USFS/USA Hockey's Learn to Skate program. These classes build the basic skills needed to continue on into figure skating or hockey. 

We have two options for your skater: 

1) Border Blades Skating Academy: These are classes for the skater that is looking to stay with Border Blades and figure skating.

2) Learn to Skate: These are classes for the skater that will be more recreation and hockey focused. Great for those skaters who will eventually move to GF Hockey or are just learning to skate to skate with friends.  

If you have questions as to which class to register for, please email Pene DeMaster at

All skaters are required to register as Border Blades Figure Skating Club members. To join, please use the Join Border Blades link in the navigation above.
