The Snowplow Sam levels are introductory group classes divided into 4 progressive levels allowing children with no prior skating experience to build confidence while learning the basic skills of skating. These group classes are designed to help children 6 and younger develop the ABC's of movement - Agility - Balance - Coordination and Speed. The ABCs are essential for developing fundamental movement skills and physical literacy.  All group classes will be taught in a safe and positive environment, incorporating fun and games making class time an enjoyable experience for all.
