Julie teaches private and group skating lessons, as well as off-ice conditioning classes in the following locations:
Colonial Figure Skating Club located in Boxborough, MA
North Shore Skating Club with locations in Saugus and Reading, MA
Northeast Ice Skating Club with locations in Haverhill and Lawrence, MA
Wilmington Figure Skating Club in Wilmington MA.
Classes are usually made up of no more than 10 skaters, and provide a social and fun atmosphere of learning. They are an excellent way for a skater to learn the basic fundamentals of both figure skating and hockey. The program starts in Snowplow Sam and continues with Badge levels 1-8 (age 6+) with a progression to more advanced levels Freestyle 1-6. Each child progresses at their own individual ability and pace. Badges and certificates are earned each time a skater passes a level and our program is designed to encourage self-confidence through the sport of ice skating.
Private lessons are available for all ages and levels, ranging from recreational, hockey and competitive skaters. The lessons provide more individualized one-on-one attention where skills can be perfected and new skills can be developed at a faster pace. Skaters progress their skills and become stronger skaters because the coach is able to give them 100 % undivided attention and able to tailor the lesson to the individual’s specific needs.
*Skaters must be members of United States Figure Skating to skate on freestyle or moves in the field sessions.
Julie teaches Off-Ice Conditioning at North Shore Skating Club. The classes are small group training sessions focused highly on functional training specifically for figure skaters. Each class is one hour that consists of a warm up, circuit strength training, cardio, core strengthening and stretching. Classes offer the opportunity to improve endurance and agility, strength and power, balance, core strength and stability, flexibility as well as preventing injury.
