Once your skater has progressed through the group “Learn to skate” classes offered by the City of Edina at Braemar Arena, consider joining the Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club as a Junior Club member. Junior Club is the next step for your child to learn and develop his or her skating skills. Rather than large group classes, Junior Club members are able to learn from a Braemar skating professional in small groups (semi-private lessons), or have private lessons to receive more personalized skating instruction. As a Junior Club member, you are able to use the entire sheet of ice when you are receiving your lessons.
Unique Advantages of Junior Club Membership
- Reduced club membership fee
- Smaller group or private lessons from experienced professional instructors
- A variety of ice times to better suit your schedule
- Individualized attention and introduction to additional skating techniques
- Opportunity to join a skating community
- Opportunity to determine if your skater would like to pursue this sport as an individual or synchronized competitive skater
Joining the BCLFSC as a Junior Club member is a great way to see if your child would like to pursue individual or synchronized competitive skating or simply enjoy the benefits of recreational skating. No matter what you decide, your child will have fun meeting other kids who enjoy the sport of figure skating!
Membership is open to anyone at any time. The regular annual Club Membership goes from July 1 to June 30. This membership level allows you to join the club at a reduced fee of $90/year (limit of 2 years) and enjoy individualized private lessons with a coaching professional of your choice. Junior Club members are required to contract for at least one session a week.
