Aspire Program


The U.S. Figure Skating Aspire Program provides a solid foundation in figure skating through the development of athleticism and artistry, empowering skaters to be successful on and off the ice.

Border Blades Aspire Program (previously named Bridge Program) provides skaters with a transition from Border Blades Skating Academy or Learn to Skate classes, into figure skating with Border Blades, through the use of small group lessons. Skaters will learn to train like a figure skater, working on the fundamentals in skating skills, spins & jumps plus off-ice training!

This class is for skaters who want to become figure skaters! Skaters should have passed basic 3 level. This class is not open to skaters who have already passed their USFS pre-preliminary skating skills test.

 Skaters will be divided into groups, based on level, to work on combining their basic skills with figure skating elements. 

Skaters will also have the opportunity to perform in our Holiday Exhibition and the annual Ice Show.
