Program Details

EDGES Program Format

The first few classes are "welcome" classes in which the skaters are observed and grouped according to ability and skill level. Skaters are given a group number. The numbers are placed along the boards.

The students are taught fundamentals in their group and when a determined standard is reached, they will be tested and possibly re-grouped. Tests are done toward the end of the 10 week program. Achievement Ribbons are awarded once a "Pass" of all skills at the student's level are achieved.
