If your child has never ice skated before, this is the place for them. Learn to Skate is run by the talented and experienced coaches of the Greater Pensacola Figure Skating Club.

All Greater Pensacola Figure Skating Club skaters are required to first register with their club which includes a Learn to Skate USA membership. Membership fees are annual and valid July 1-June 30 containing many benefits, including secondary sports accident insurance. 

Sessions will include Basic Skills focusing on the fundamentals of ice skating such as:
