I love Learn to Skate. I never want it to end.
Ice Girl has advanced so many Learn to Skate levels in the past eight months that Learn to Skate will soon come to an end.
I'm proud of Ice Girl, I really am. However, Learn to Skate is a great scheme.
I pay $90 for the six sessions of Learn to Skate. That's $15 per session, which is 30 minutes of coaching and 30 minutes of practice ice.
In the world of club ice, 1 hour of ice costs me, oh, $11-12/hour. That's not including the $35/hour coach, or $17.50/half-hour coach.
Yep. I did the math, too. Learn to Skate is a bargain.
It's really a bargain when I consider that Ice Girl is in Freestyle 4 and has a coach all to herself.
I can see the end of LtS on the horizon and it makes me a bit sad. Ice Girl's coach, Ice Coach, also runs Ice Girl's LtS program. Ice Coach said we can keep her in LtS for as long as I want.
We all know what "As long as I want" means to me: Ice Girl will be in LtS until she graduates from high school! :)
