For all STARskate Parents
Lesson Schedule for Season 2020/2021
This memo will provide information with regards to our lesson structure for the STARskate Program.
There is one skating session planned for our 2020-2021 skating season: Wednesdays from 6:30 – 7:50pm.
During our sessions we will be offering Group Instruction broken down by level, Star 1, Star 2, Star 3, Star 4 and Star 5. Group lessons will be conducted in the areas of Skills, Dance, and Freeskate. For returning skaters you will see a different layout on the ice this year to ensure we are able to cover all areas of instruction. Group instruction will run anywhere from 20 – 30 minutes/session/per level.
Group instruction coaching costs are included in your registration fees.
In addition to Group Instruction we offer Private Instruction. Private instruction provides one on one time between Coach/Skater. A private lesson is 10 – 15 minutes in length and fees for these lessons are paid directly to the coach. The coach will invoice parents for private lessons on a monthly basis and payments are due within 30 days of receipt of invoice. Costs vary from 10.00 – 12.00 / lesson depending on coach (Melissa or (Kelly) Dorothea).
Private lessons can be provided under any of the disciplines of Freeskate, Dance or Skills. We can also provide semi-private where 2 skaters share one lesson and the cost is split between the two. This often works well with a dance lesson. You can have as many private lessons a week as time / scheduling permits.
In Millbrook we have always followed a team coaching approach. A schedule is prepared weekly and skaters/coaches alternate from week to week.
Melissa is responsible for the schedule and she is aware of the specific nights skaters have signed up for and will schedule lessons accordingly.
We would like parents to confirm to Melissa what (if any) private lessons you would like your daughter or son to have private lessons. If we do not receive a confirmation, no private lessons will be given.
If you have any questions, please feel free to speak directly to any one of the coaches.
Thank you and we look forward to a great skating season !
