Private lessons offer the skater, regardless of age or skating level, the opportunity to work one-on-one with one. Private lessons help the skater master difficult skills and prepare for participation in the competitive environment. Lesson dates, times, and frequency are set up between skater and coach. Private lessons are offered for a variety of skills including: ice show solos, basic skills, test preparation, competition participation, freestyle, moves in the field, power skating, and ice hockey.
Private lessons are taught during McCall FSC ice time, public sessions, stick and puck and during freestyle times.
