Bridge Aspire

Fast-paced, accelerated program, focusing on proper stretching techniques, warm-up and cool down both on and off the ice, stroking, edges and power skating, introductory moves in the field, spins, jumps, and Artistry in Motion (beginning choreography and style). Students are evaluated and tested based on Learn To Skate USA’s Basic Skills curriculum. Skaters must have passed at least Basic 4 and up to Preliminary Free Skate to register for this program.

New! Practice Ice

Sharpen your skating skills with additional practice ice at The Skating Academy’s Foxboro Campus! Available on a first-come, first-serve basis to skaters currently enrolled in a Foxboro class, our practice sessions are the perfect opportunity to take our award-winning Learn to Skate USA lessons and apply them on the ice at your own pace.

Private or Semi-private lessons may also be available during practice ice time. Lessons fees are not included in the cost of the practice ice time and are based on arrangements between the skater/parent and coach. 

Please note that pre-registration for practice ice is required. Practice ice time can be purchased in a prepaid package at $20.00 per skater/session. Individual sessions may be purchased at $26.00 per skater/session. Packages will have first priority.
