Snowplow Sam Levels

The Snowplow Sam levels are designed to help the preschool-age skater develop preliminary coordination and strength to maneuver on the ice. Snowplow Sam is a big, fuzzy polar bear who loves to skate. Time with Snowplow Sam will allow preschool children to become comfortable on the ice. The child-instructor ratio for Snowplow Sam courses is 12:1 except Snowplow Sam 1 which is 8:1.


Basic Skills Levels

The “basic skills” are the fundamentals of the sport. These levels of the program introduce the fundamental moves: forward skating, backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, turns and Mohawks. Upon completion of the Basic levels, skaters will have a base knowledge of the sport, enabling them to advance to more specialized areas of skating.
