Bridge Training Program

The Bridge Training Program is designed to teach skating skills at a fast pace in a group training environment.   It also doubles as a great way to introduce skaters and their families to the world of figure skating.  Participants must be of the Basic 6 skating level and up.

This program meets on Saturdays.

Off-Ice Training

Off-ice training is a class specially designed for figure skaters.  In the sport of figure skating, a skater must have a strong core in order to complete difficult jumps, spins and edge moves.  Our classes will help participants build specific body muscles in their abdomen, legs, arms, and back through the use of plyometrics, exercise balls, pilates, and other exercises that promote strength and flexibility.

Classes are taught by former US World Team Leader GALE PILLA!

Classes are Tuesdays 4:45 -5:15

Figure Skating Summer Camps

Full Day Figure Skating Camps for skaters of the Basic 6 skating level and above.  Campers will have the option of attending our camps for 3 days or 5 days per week.  Our well-rounded camps offer on-ice training, off-ice training, and freestyle sessions to practice your skills.  Protec Figure Skating Camps are instructed by a professional and certified Figure Skating Staff.  Look out for more information about our 2020 Summer Camps in early 2020!

Protec Ponds’ Off-Ice Training Program

Off-Ice training is a class specially designed for figure skaters. In the sport of figure skating a skater must have strong core strength in order to complete difficult jumps, spins and edges. Our classes will help skaters build specific body muscles in their abdomen, legs, arms and back which are needed for skating. Skaters will use plyometrics, exercise balls, pilates and other exercises to promote strength and flexibility.

Skaters will also work on the jumps they have learned on the ice in this class. It is very important for skaters to be able to land single, double and even triple jumps off of the ice before they can begin landing them on the ice. Proper Off-Ice jump technique allows a skater to master the skills necessary to complete a jump in a much faster manner than on ice training alone.

Skaters need to wear tight clothing (skating attire is fine) and sneakers for class. Slip on shoes and boots are not permitted.
