Coaches will conduct evaluations during the last week of class in order to determine placement for the next session. If a skater is ready to advance before the given evaluation date, coaches will arrange to have an earlier evaluation. We ask families to support our coaches in the evaluation process and understand that we all learn and skate at our own pace.
