Your child loves figure skating. He or she is progressing beyond Park City Ice Arena's Skating Academy. What's next? Become an Introductory Member of the FSCPC and join the ASPIRE PROGRAM - our developmental program within the Figure Skating Club of Park City.
For every thirty minutes of instruction your child will need to practice for approximately one hour. This, of course, is adjusted downward for very young children (3-5).
Once your child has entered the Devo Program and private lessons, good boot and blade fit are critical for safety and progress. Check with our skating director, Erika Roberts, to purchase a used pair or to order a new pair. Erika is a highly qualified boot fitter. New entry level boots and blades cost approximately $150-$200. Because children grow out of the skates before they wear them out, it is common to sell them and purchase used ones as they grow.
In addition to boots and blades, your skater will need plastic blade guards (to be used when walking around the rink) and soakers (to be used when storing and carrying skates in skate bag). See the equipment links for common options.
