2021-2022 Fee Schedule

Private Lessons 

  • 15 minutes (standard)---------------------- $15.50
  • 30 minutes------------------------------------- $31.00
  • 45 minutes------------------------------------- $46.50
  • 60 minutes------------------------------------- $62.00

I recommend that all beginning skaters take a minimum of two 15-minute lessons a week. Once at the Pre-Preliminary level, I recommend that skaters take a minimum of three 15-minute lessons per week, at the Juvenile level and above I recommend a minimum of five 15-minute lessons per week. Ideally, they should skate daily to practice what they’ve learned in their lessons. The more they practice the quicker they will progress.


Competition

Competition Practice Ice:

Competition practice ice is typically 30 minutes in duration. It is beneficial for the skater to have their coach with them for practice ice. Think of this as a lesson that is further preparing them for competition. I charge the same as a 30-minute private lesson. If I have more than one skater on the same practice ice I divide the cost equally between the participants.


E.X. (30-minute lesson) $31.00/ 2 (two skaters) =

$15.50 each


Competition Coaching:

I spend a couple of hours with each skater before, during, and after they compete. Before they compete we do an off-ice warm up and work on visualization exercises. Just prior to their competition they also have a few minute warm-up that I coach them through. After they compete we go over the results once posted. I charge a flat fee of $31.00 per program/ event. 

Competition Travel Expenses:

When traveling out of town for a competition or test the cost for my hotel, fuel, and food is divided equally between all families attending the competition.


Testing

Test Coaching:

Once skaters pass Basic 1-8 and Free Skate 1-6 they go on to the final 8 levels. The levels include Pre-Preliminary, Preliminary, Pre-Juvenile, Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior, and Senior. Each level has two tests called Moves in the Field and Free Style. Once skaters reach these levels they must test before judges in order to pass a test or level. I charge a flat fee of $31.00 per test.

Test Travel Expenses:

When traveling out of town for a test the cost for my hotel, fuel, and food is divided equally between all families attending the test session.


Music Cutting Service

Having music and a program is a fun way to practice the skills being practiced. I put a lot of thought into the music chosen for a skater but also love when skaters choose their own (on approval). I typically purchase the full song online and spend time cutting/ editing the piece to the required length as described for their skating level by U.S. Figure Skating. I charge a flat fee of $31.00 for this service.
