The Pavilion is excited to offer our “Bridge to Excellence” program, a developmental training experience for our athletes who desire to take their skating beyond Basic Skills. The program will include challenging classes designed to help skaters in Basic 4 to Free Skate 6 achieve top performances. Students will be introduced to what lies ahead in the world of competitive skating as they move from Basic Skills in to the USFSA testing and competition system.
The Bridge program teaches skating skills in the group lesson environment they are familiar with and introduces them to the future of skating. Bridge classes are smaller than those in the learn
to skate program in order for each skater to get maximum attention.
Classes are offered in 6 week sessions on Tuesdays from 5:30 pm to 6:15 pm.  Participants must have passed the Basic 4 USFS Basic Skills Curriculum.
