About Becky's Private Ice Skating Lessons

hired 5 times on Thumbtack

Learn how to ice skate; improve your hockey game; pass a skating test; prepare for a figure skating competition, or get fit.

Private and semi-private lessons are available at the Eagan Civic Arena on Sundays and weekdays from 12-1:30pm. There is also contract ice time at Eagan on Saturdays, Thursdays and Mondays. At the Richfield Skating Arena on Wednesdays 6:30-8pm and Sundays 3-4:30pm. Also at Wakota and Inver Grove Heights arenas depending on the schedule. Lessons are generally 30 minutes long, once per week for $30.00. We can go longer or more often if you want to improve faster or if you have a try-out coming up. Semi-private lessons incur an additional $10 per student. Skaters are responsible for their open skating fees of $2-8 and/or skate rental.

Skaters are to pay me directly for lessons by cash or check. I work with all ages, abilities and levels. I've been coaching for 20+ years and was director of the Eagan skate school from 1998-2001. My background includes ISI, USFSA, competitions, tests, freestyle, moves, figures, ice dance, synchro, power skating, off-ice pilates training, off-ice dance training, hockey power skating, and basic skills. I have a Bachelor's degree from Hamline University in Psychology and Anthropology.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Yes, I am a PSA rated coach and ISI Gold certified judge so I attend the ISI seminars and coaches meetings.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I loved skating all my life and helping others reach their goals so it was a no brainer to become a coach.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. 30 minute private lessons once a week for each skater.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Know what your skating goals are first and then find a coach that has the experience and flexibility to help you meet those goals. Request a resume when hiring an instructor if you want to.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. The huge amount of work, focus and commitment it takes to reach the USFSA Gold level in figure skating. I spent my entire life training for figure skating, this would include skating from 5-7am 3 times a week and then skating again after school another 3 times a week. Also taking group, private lessons and skating on a synchro team. As I got older I incorporated off-ice weight training and dance classes to perfect my technique. I was testing my last ice-dance tests when I was 6 months pregnant with my son. He is now an elite Mite hockey player, playing for the MN Made Choice league. I'm so proud of him, he also completed the ISI skating tests thru the Delta level by the time he was 7 years old.
