Come Sk8 With Us!

Our Learn to Skate program will teach the fundamentals of skating to skaters of all ages and levels.  This 45 minute class is with full instruction taught by the professional staff of the Port Huron Figure Skating Club and our volunteer Ice Captains.  All skaters that sign up for our Learn to Skate Program will be placed in groups according to their skill level and will receive a certificate and patch for each level passed.

Learn to Skate Membership ($16.50) is valid July 1 - June 30 (good for 1 year).

Basic information:
  • Helmets are recommended at PHFSC but, not required.
  • Dress your skater in layers (nothing too bulky) but, keep them warm.
  • Don't forget gloves for their hands.
  • Skates - the beginner/recreational skates work fine with a few exceptions.  Plastic skates don't allow the skater to bend their ankles so leather skates are preferred. Skates should fit the foot correctly and have good support...  any of our coaches on staff would be happy to check skates if you have any questions.

Our program promotes good health and physical fitness, while learning new skills and having FUN!

Why should I register for Learn to Skate and not just sign my child up for hockey?  Hockey is a fast paced game with many children of varying abilities at the younger age. For your child to get the most out of the learn to play hockey program, it is best if they have the fundamentals down. This prevents the practices from being slowed down for the children that can skate already because of the children that cannot.

If my child takes to skating very quickly, can we move him/her up to the learn hockey program or private figure skating lessons?  Yes. If your child quickly moves through the LTS (Learn to Skate) program we can always move them into the learn to play hockey program or private figure skating lessons.

What happens after my child completes LTS (Learn to Skate)?  Typically children interested in hockey will complete a full year of LTS (Learn to Skate) then signup for U8 (8 & Under/Learn to Play Hockey) the following year. It really depends on if your child is ready to make the move up to the U8 Program. Our U8 Program starts mid September and goes through February. Registration is always open for the U8 program, but you must be able to skate before learning to play hockey. Children interested in figure skating may continue to sign up for LTS year after year to work through each level or may decide to move into private lessons with a coach.
