Austin’s figure skating community calls Chaparral Ice home. Skaters of all abilities and disciplines have access to a variety of resources and services, both on and off the ice. Chaparral Ice has enlisted a roster of talented coaches and Austin residents can draw from the facility’s deep well of talent through Learn To Skate USA programs. We have intermediate skill classes, and advanced private lessons for recreational and competitive skaters of all ages.
Each year, the Austin Figure Skating Club and Chaparral Ice co-host the Winner’s Circle Compete USA Basic Skills competition, and Austin FSC hosts the Bluebonnet Open non-qualifying competition which draws skaters from across the Southwest.
For information on our Learn to Skate classes, please visit the Learn to Skate web page.
All sessions are 30 minutes
All participants must reserve sessions online at least 24 hours in advance to guarantee admission to the session.
Discounts are only available with online freestyle pass packages or memberships.
These sessions are not for the general public. You must have passed Pre-Free Skate to attend. Please visit our Public Skating page for general public skating information.
PRIVATE LESSONS: Private lessons are a great idea for skaters who may be having trouble mastering skills, or for those who wish to advance faster or compete.
For private lessons, our coaches set their own rates and schedules. Most coaches charge between $35 and $40 per half-hour lesson. That fee is paid directly to the coach and the skater pays rink separately for public session or freestyle admission. Private lessons for skaters in Snowplow 1-4, Basic 1-6, Adult 1-6, and Pre-Free Skate are booked during our daily public
sessions. Skaters in Free Skate 1 and above may choose to take privates during the public sessions or private freestyle sessions (see above), depending on the schedule chosen by you and your coach.
