Spots are quickly filling for the Adult Stroking Seminar on November 5th at Prince William Ice Center (PWIC). This half day event will include a 40 minute stroking class, an off-ice ballet class, a 40-minute practice ice, and a skater education session with a USFS Judge about skating and competing in the IJS as an adult.

While there is no test requirement, skaters should be age eligible for the adult test track, and comfortably be able to skate using forward and backward crossovers. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the seminar.
