Free Ice Skating Lessons

Skate For Free During National Skating Month

January is National Skating Month, which means ice skating groups nationwide are looking to bring ice skating into the forefront. If you've always wanted to skate like Peggy Fleming then now is your chance.

U.S. Figure Skating and SELF magazine are offering a free Basic Skills lesson from now until the end of June 2008. All you have to do to take advantage of the opportunity is print out the coupon and bring it to a participating Basic Skills program near you. Sounds like fun to me! And remember a 130 lb. person can burn upwards of 300 calories during an hour of ice skating. Check out USFSA or more for details and the coupon.

I love ice skating!! I started learning two years ago, and although I wasn't very good, I loved it. It's one of the few sports that I actually enjoy. I wish I had taken up lessons earlier though so I could compete, but it's all good. I still love skating :) And people, don't worry about falling! Everybody does it sometimes and won't even pay much, if any attention if you fall.

Go skate, enjoy! My competitive FS nephew is not giving out free private skating lessons this month neither are his coaches. College, new skates, three private coaches, freestyle time at three different rinks, gas and food aren't free. He is teaching skating school and those classes are free. His rink tried to say they wouldn't be paying the skating school teachers this month for their work but we instructed him to inform them that he wouldn't be working then. Suddenly, he's being paid to teach the free classes.

I love ice skating! I'm trying to get my husband in it, but he's never even been before! There's an adorable skating pond five minutes from our house. I'm thinking of just going to Dick's Sporting Goods and buying him some skates so he can go with me...I think he'll like it once he tries it!
