Please note: Freestyle sessions are Freestyle member-only sessions. This is separate from a standard Ice Hub account. Please contact Skate Director Nicole at email@example.com for membership approval and registration instructions.
What is a Freestyle Session?
A freestyle session is ice time dedicated exclusively to figure skating.
Freestyle sessions are for more experienced skaters to practice and/or take private lessons to work on ice dancing, moves in the field, jumps, spins and program choreography. Freestyle sessions are open to skaters who have passed the LTS USA Pre-Freeskate level or Adult 6 and up. Lower level skaters are permitted to skate, if in a lesson.
NOTE: All Freestyle spectators must remain in the Party Booths, Eatery, or Upstairs.
Freestyles are focused practice sessions for skaters motivated to develop their skills; no sliding, horseplay, idle or shadow skating permitted. Skaters practice and perform powerful double and triple jumps, advanced spins, complicated and intricate footwork and specific dance and moves in the field patterns at high speeds on these sessions; therefore all skaters must be aware, alert and focused to participate. It is critical to be on the lookout for other skaters!
Appropriate, athletic attire is required and long hair should be secured up and off the face. Please collect all belongings, repair divots in the ice, and dispose of tissues in receptacles at the end of sessions.
Joining Freestyle Sessions
Skaters interested in utilizing freestyle ice, must create a Hub account, submit for freestyle membership (no charge) and pre-purchase ice time via the sticker system. Please email Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive this membership registration link.
Freestyle membership will be approved once the minimal skill level or a scheduled lesson with a coach has been confirmed.
Freestyle Admission Stickers:
Freestyle skaters must purchase a sticker for each 30 minute session a skater they intend to skate. Stickers are sold online in sets of 10 for $75. Skaters may also purchase a walk-on rate for $10 per 30 minute session, assuming minimal skill level has been confirmed.
Skaters must lay their sticker/s for each session they intend to skate prior to stepping onto the ice. Skaters may only skate sessions at the prescribed times, and will be charged for partial sessions (ex. if a session runs 315-345pm a skater may only skate 315-345pm, not 320-350pm).

1. Purchasing Stickers
Freestyle stickers are available for purchase in sets of 10, for $75 per set.
One Freestyle sticker must be placed down at check-in for each 30 minute session.
- Skaters must register for their ice time in order to receive their stickers. The check-in attendant will have them ready for you when you arrive for your registered session.
- Stickers must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance. Stickers bought after 3pm on Friday will not be ready until the following Monday.
- If you’re purchasing stickers late- don’t worry! Simply show their order confirmation to the check-in attendant, and their stickers will be available at your next registered session following.
2. Register for Ice Time
Log into the Ice Hub to register for sessions. Freestyle sessions are scheduled in 30 minute time slots.
- Each time slot requires one sticker- make sure you have a sticker ready to put down for every session you select!
- If you cannot select your participants name because they are “Not a Member”, you will need a Freestyle membership. There is no additional cost, this just allows skaters to sign up for ice time.
3. Private Lesson (If Applicable)
Private lessons may be scheduled directly with coaches via their contact information, or clients may email Skate Director Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance matching student needs with a coach’s area of expertise.
