Learn to Skate USA

Reisterstown Sportsplex offers a skating program through Learn to Skate USA! We offer all levels from beginners starting at age 4, advanced skating with jumps and spins, pre-hockey skating, adult and synchronized skating classes.

It is recommended that skaters stay enrolled in the group lessons through Freeskate level 6. Supplementing the group lessons with a private lesson will boost their skating level. After completing Freeskate 6, parents and skaters will want to discuss skating goals with their coach. The Worthington Valley Figure Skating Club will offer full membership to U.S Figure Skating along with advanced skating options. 

All members of the Reisterstown Learn to Skate program MUST be members of Learn to Skate USA before taking our skating classes. For more information and registration:
