2017 - 18 Junior Competitive Program

September, 2017 to June, 2018

READY...SET...JCP!
The Junior Competitive Program at IceWorks is designed to continue the growth of the basic skills skater into the competitive skating environment. The program will bridge the gap between basic skills group lessons and private lessons while making competitive skating an affordable option for families. The Program will not only teach to individualized levels, but also encompass introductory parent education sessions and skating club spirit.

Download and deliver your completed registration form with payment instructions to the IceWorks Registration Desk. Most skaters will benefit by consulting with Leif Gislason regarding appropriate program selections. Please contact Leif Gislason at jcp@iceworks.net or call 610-497-2200 x117
