Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of off-season camps and clinics held at your ice arena or facilities across the country.
Many arenas offer figure skating and hockey day camps and clinics for skaters of all ages and skill levels. Some bring in “big-name” professionals to teach and host seminars. Testing sessions may be available, allowing you to focus on advancing to the next level without the added pressures of the academic year.
Many figure skating camps feature fun themes, include both on-ice and off-ice training and stage end-of-camp performances for families.
Whether you’re looking for a fun way to spend all or part of your summer, or you want to concentrate on improving skating skills, there’s probably a summer camp or clinic to meet your needs.
Here is a sampling of ISI-member rinks’/schools’ summer offerings:
