All of us at Charlson Excavating proudly support the Mason City Youth Hockey Program!
Anyone, regardless of age, may sign up for a"LTS" session! LTS sessions will be broken down into 4 (5 week sessions) per year. If you sign up for the first session during hockey registration it will run from Saturday, October 14th through November 11th and it will cost you $75. Any subsequent sessions a skater would like to take will be $50 per session and will be paid to the figure skating club directly.
Sessions will be instructed by Certified Skating Coaches from the Mason City Figure Skating Club.
Sessions will consist of a 20 min class and then the remainder of the time the skater spends in the practice ice areas or they can choose to leave if they want. They will make an effort to include organized activities in the practice area this season.
Based off of last seasons Figure Skating LTS sessions they will have 3-4 class levels going on at the same time for 20 min sections, and then swap. Some skaters will start with practice ice and then rotate to the lesson, and vise versa. With the hour long time frame they may try to have three sections OR have practice time for the last 15-20mins. Their system is organized by color coded name tags which match the color of cone their lesson area will be at.
The skaters progress through the levels at their pace with formal testing at the end of each 5 week session. If your skater has never taken an LTS class, they will be evaluated on their first lesson to assess their skating capabilities, if they are returning skaters in the LTS program, they would just pick up where they left off.
Please take the time to read the detailed descriptions of the skills that will be taught for both the Snow Plow Level and the Basic 1 & 2 Lessons.
