Skate Clinic With Alissa Czisny
Registration is now open for our Friday, November 2 Clinic with Alissa Czisny. Whether you saw her in Stars on Ice, while she was winning the 2010 Grand Prix, US Nationals twice, or Skate Canada twice, you know she is an incredibly artistic skater, known for her phenomenal spins and spirals.
We’ve made this clinic affordable ($60 for non-Hershey members) and appropriate to three skating levels to allow your skaters to benefit. Register at Levels are based on Free Style tests (not Moves)

  • Level 1 – Pre-Freeskate to No Test – 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM
  • Level 2 – Pre-Preliminary to Pre-Juvenile – 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM
  • Level 3 – Juvenile to Senior – 11:15 AM to 12:45 PM

Note: this is an all-ages clinic. Adults are welcome if they have comparable testing levels.
Level 1 is a great opportunity for newer and younger skaters to get a taste of a clinic.
All three levels will work on skills appropriate to the testing level.
Alissa will be working primarily on spins with some additional skills as time allows.
Coaches are welcome to attend ice-side.
See a great compilation of Alissa’s spins from competition here:
