Has lockdown got your spirits down? Let us lift you UP with our virtual development classes, for synchro skaters and teams around the world!
NOUVEAU: voir cette page en français!
After over 600 participants left hundreds of positive reviews on our 5-week virtual season kick-off program offered in collaboration with Skate Canada, we decided we needed to keep offering these classes to support our community through these challenging times.
No ice? NO PROBLEM! Our virtual off-ice classes are taught by passionate and knowledgable instructors from around the world, who are dedicated to helping you develop as a skater, no matter what your current circumstances are.
Our classes are offered in English, with French Translations available for each class.
On this page, you'll find program details, such as registration links, the schedule, fees, instructor bios & class curriculum!
*Team/Club registration is for groups of 10 or more skaters, being registered by their coach or team manager*

FFM SPECIALTY ADD-ON (*NEW*):
Turn your 60 minute class into a 90 minute class!
Since 60 minutes of flexibility training flies by (once you factor in warm-up, muscle activation/relaxation, and finally, stretching + strengthening for field moves), we are offering a 30-minute specialty class add-on, following each 60-minute class, where skaters can get additional help on specific skating moves (ie stretches for y-stands/standing splits, training and improving a Biellmann, etc). You do not have to be an advanced skater to take advantage of the specialty class; it will help you whether you are trying to get your spiral above 90 degrees, OR trying to achieve an over-split in your split jumps (or anywhere in between). The additional cost for the specialty 30-minute add-on is $12.50 USD/skater, for 5 weeks. NOTE you must be enrolled in the regular 60-minute class to join the 30-minute specialty class. The specialty class will be held immediately following the regular class. You will be able to watch it ON-DEMAND if you register for this additional option.
FFM PRIVATE LESSONS (*NEW*):
Are you "good enough" for private lessons? YES! How do we know? Because there is no such thing as being good enough for private lessons. Whether you are an adult skater wanting to improve your spiral position while reducing your risk of injury (let's be honest, it's not as simple as a coach shouting "get your leg higher!" and this misconception is where a lot of injuries come from), or you're a competitive skater with a field move that just isn't as good as you'd like it to be, private lessons and personal attention from our flexibility coaches can and will help you!
When you register for our Virtual Season Sequel, you can add on 30 or 60 minute private lessons with our instructors. After you register, you will be connected with the instructor to coordinate a time that works for your schedule.
