Figure Skating Center of Excellence

The Shattuck-St. Mary’s Figure Skating Center of Excellence has pioneered the concept of combining excellence in college preparatory academics and intensive figure skating training. The program offers high-quality instruction in all areas of figure skating, focusing on the individual needs of each skater. This approach gives serious skaters the chance to pursue their academic and college aspirations alongside their figure skating dreams. The SSM program is tailored not only for the competitive skater but also for the skater that is committed and loves to train daily. It allows for skaters to work towards their individual goals while being surrounded by an encouraging team and still have the opportunity to experience other aspects of school life.

Skaters participate in up to five competitions, three test sessions, and two ice shows per year. They receive 3+ hours of on-ice training daily, including tech, style, and power classes, as well as private and group lessons. Additionally, off ice jump, strength and conditioning, and dance classes are offered weekly.

Our internationally recognized coaching staff has skated professionally and offers extensive national and international coaching experience to all age groups. As certified members through the Professional Skaters Association (PSA), coaches travel with our athletes to various competitions worldwide. Additionally, skaters have frequent opportunities to train with renowned guest coaches, such as Surya Bonaly, Phillip Mills, and others.

Student-athletes have access to three ice arenas, a 10,500 sq. foot weight training and conditioning facility, as well as an athletic training room providing advanced aquatic therapy and full-time athletic training staff.
