WELCOME TO SKATE WITH JEN! Supporter of Mastodon Ice Arena
All SWJ Sessions are full ice, full gear, sticks and pucks - agility training, edge work, acceleration, and refinement in a group setting. We break things down and work on the mechanics behind the motions to make sure there is a good working knowledge of the how and why and then practice it. Then we add a stick and a puck. Then we add an Assistant for pressure, simulating a game situation.
SWJ vs Small Groups
Small Groups can vary due to the current limited ice time and max out at 15 skaters. Ice can be 1/2 sheet at the Chillers or full sheet at the Battery. The sessions are between 30 minutes to 50.
We usually have 1 assistant.
The SWJ sessions run 45-60 min, depending on the day.
I use 2-3 assistants to make sure everyone has access to someone if they need help or have questions. All costs below include ice time and the instruction.
There are 4 levels of SWJ. Ages/ Levels are approximate. We will get your skater into the group they need!
*Level Splits below for Summer Session
SWJ- Starter - This is our first level where great skating begins! We work on balance, edge control, and technique. This session is good for Mini Mites- Beginner Mites (5-7 yrs olds) 45 minutes long, $35 per session
SWJ- Prime -This group is faster paced and more aggressive than SWJ - Starter. Skaters should have a good working knowledge of forward and backward crossovers with speed. (Fast 6- 12 yrs olds) 45 minutes long, $35 per session
SWJ - Mixed - This group has all ages. I love this group because the more advanced skaters have to look good for the younger ones and the younger skaters want to skate like the big guys! All instruction is tailored to the individual needs of the skaters. (Fast 8+ to 18+ years olds) 60 minutes long, $45 per session
SWJ - Advanced - This group is fine tuning their edges and then using them in a fast paced, high intensity training for 60 minutes. Bring water. (Bantam/ U13 AAA - Juniors) 60 minutes long, $45 per session
We want your skater to have a great time and learn in a fun, appropriate group. If we find that they might do better in a more advanced class, or a more relaxed class, we will let you know. Parents are always welcome to let us know if they would like to move a class as well.
To sign up for a SWJ Session go to the schedule on the home page, scroll down and book your time. You only sign up for the days/ dates that you want. If it’s a 4 week session and you have a vacation scheduled in the middle - not to worry! Just don’t sign up for that day. From there you will go to the venmo account for me, Jennifer-Tieche-2 (It’s hot pink so it should be easy to find). When paying through venmo - write your skater’s name and what days/ dates they are doing in the comments section. We take venmo, paypal, cash and check (email me to let me know if you are paying via cash or check - firstname.lastname@example.org). Please make checks payable to Skate with Jen LLC.
