One of the greatest benefits of joining the Binghamton Figure Skating club is the ability to take private lessons with our team of highly qualified coaches. Since private lessons occur during club ice, you must be a member of the club to enjoy private lessons. Private lessons are currently available to skaters skating at Basic or Adult Levels 5 and 6 or beyond. Level 4’s may also be considered based on coach’s recommendation. (If you are a beginner, please see our Learn to Skate USA page.)
If you are interested in private lessons, you must make arrangements with a coach yourself (the club will not assign you to a coach). Hourly rates for private lessons vary from coach to coach. See below to learn more about our coaches.
Please note: Coaches’ schedules fill up quickly, so be sure to contact a coach early in the season!
