Freestyle Sessions

What is a freestyle session?

A freestyle session is a 30, 45, 60, or 90-minute session where the general public is not allowed on the ice. Skaters practice and perform powerful jumps and spins at high speeds on these sessions; therefore, all skaters must be aware, alert and focused to participate. Some sessions even require skaters to be at a certain freestyle level of skating.

Advantages of a freestyle session vs. a public session:

  • More sessions to choose from
  • Fewer skaters
  • Ability to play program music
  • Use of the full ice surface
  • No restrictions on elements that can be practiced
  • Private lessons available
  • Opportunity to work on program choreography

General rules and etiquette for a freestyle session:

  • The skater playing their music has the first right of way
  • Skaters in lessons have 2nd right of way
  • All skaters must take turns playing music (coaches have priority)
  • Be considerate of everyone on the ice
  • Be safe around younger skaters
  • Exit the ice to talk so you are not in the way of other skaters
