Train with our coaches

Are you looking to train with our coaches at Fairfax Ice Arena? Credentialed through Professional Skaters Association, U.S. Figure Skating and SafeSport, our coaches combine advanced techniques with a passion for teaching to help students master the skills needed to achieve their goals in figure skating.

  • Our coaches have trained skaters who have successfully competed in regional, sectional, collegiate, national, international competitions, Worlds and the Olympics.
  • Our skaters have gone on to become competitive figure skaters, and work for national and international ice show production companies, and become competitive figure skating coaches and choreographers. 

To schedule your first private lesson with our instructors, please submit a private lesson request form. We will follow up with you in two weeks (minimum). During the winter season and competition season, you may see follow-ups take as long as 3-4 weeks.
