Bridge Program


Border Blades Bridge Program provides skaters with a transition from Border Blades Skating Academy into private lessons though the use of small group lessons. 

  • Set ice cost
  • Set coaching fees
  • Coached by full USFS coaches
  • Experience all the various parts of figure skating. [Free Skate, Dance, etc.]

Bridge classes will be offered in 4 sessions. Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring. 

The process:

  • Register for the current Bridge program.
  • Your skater will be assigned to a group and the coach for that group will be in touch.
  • When membership renewal comes you will register as an introductory member. Your Learn to Skate membership will suffice until that point. This upgrade in membership allows your skater to be eligible to take their first pre-preliminary free skate or moves in the field test.

What's next?

Skaters will generally stay in the Bridge program for up to a year. After the skater takes their first USFS test, a discussion should be had with their coach(es) on a timeline to move into full private lessons.
