Rink Side Figure Skating
Rink Side has been proud to offer this area’s premier figure skating programs since we
began in 1999. We are the recipient of the Ice Skating Institute’s Skating School District
We follow the US Figure Skating Basic Skills Curriculum. All Rink Side instructors are Basic
Instructors with a clear background check. Most are also members of PSA
(Professional Skaters Association).
The instructors keep constant watch for new information, programs and certification, including via the internet. By constantly re-educating ourselves as well as learning new ideas and techniques, we can proudly say we have one of the most qualified staffs in the area.
Rink Side is also the home of Southport Skating Club . SSC is a USFS Club that has been in operation for over 25 years. In collaboration with SSC, Rink Side brings in National, World, and Olympic level coaches and coaching clinics/seminars each year.
Rink Side offers USFS “Moves in the Field”, Power and Edge classes, Only Axels, Developing Doubles and Spin classes. These are just a sampling of the unique classes available. Combining our Off Ice Conditioning & Warm Up with Dance and Stretch classes creates a well rounded skater.
We have it all here at Rink Side under one roof….we are proud to say we are a truly well rounded training facility!
