The figure skating world can be confusing and very different from other sports, but it is also fun and rewarding.  I made this site to answer frequently asked questions for new or prospective students and give them links and direction to other resources available to them.  For my current students I hope this site helps with scheduling for lessons and to help keep you up to date on upcoming opportunities to compete and test through USFSA.  Most all of the information you will need as a skater or skating parent can be found on this website.  However, if you find that anything is missing or needs to be changed, please let me know!
