What Level Should I Sign My Student Up For?

Snowplow Sam 1-2 - Beginning Skaters that are 5 years old and younger should start in Snowplow Sam 1. As your student masters the very basics of skating, they will move through Snowplow Sam 2.  After this they will move to Basic 2. 

Basic 1-6- Beginning Skaters that are 6 years old and older should start in the Basic 1 class. As your students master the basics of skating, they will move through more advanced levels reaching Basic 6.
