The Wagon Wheel ASPIRE program is a collaborative effort with our home rink the Crystal Ice House. The program is designed to bridge the gap between Learn to Skate classes and competitive figure skating. The current steps to sign up for this brand new initiative with U.S. Figure Skating are as follows:
STEP 1 - Register with U.S. Figure Skating

Parent education materials are also included in your welcome swag bag.
