A-Game Skate Academy's experienced figure-skating instructors teach skaters of all ages gliding basics during learn-to-skate sessions. The classes follow U.S. Figure Skating's basic-skills program, which paves the way for mastering recreational ice skimming, honing speed in competitive skating, and earning doctorates in zamboni mythology. Budding figure skaters can pick up tricks of the trade for graceful triple lutzes, and hockey players in training can glean skills for nimble, speedy footwork. Students are sorted into classes based on age—tykes aged 3–5 band together in the Snow Plow Sam class, kids aged 6–15 round the ice as a group, and skaters aged 16 and older earn their blades in adult sessions to prepare for potential run-ins with Mister Freeze.
