Learn to Skate USA is the official beginning skating program for US Figure Skating, USA Hockey and US Speed Skating. This program is especially unique to the Greater Cleveland area because not only do we offer innovative instruction that is both informative and motivational, but we also include many extras. This includes free use of rental skates, extended lesson time, achievement patches to mark a student’s progress and a report card for students to use to monitor their individual progress.
