The U.S. Figure Skating ASPIRE Program helps beginning figure skaters make the transition from Learn to Skate USA group classes into U.S. Figure Skating.
Aspire offers a safe and supportive group training environment for advanced Basic Skills skaters that keeps costs down and motivation high as skaters enhance skills, develop good practice habits, and learn the fundamentals of off-ice training alongside their peers.

For skaters of multiple levels, we use skill matching to include every skater and ensure that they are learning new skills and improving existing ones. While the program at Ice Vault is open to skaters starting at Basic 4, it can go up through Learn to Skate Free Skate 6 and Preliminary moves in the field.
Aspire is meant to supplement Learn to Skate classes and even private lessons. Aspire does not follow the Learn to Skate USA curriculum. Rather, it incorporates skating skills and off-ice training into a higher-level group program.
Through the development of athleticism and skill, Aspire helps skaters build a solid foundation that drives success on and off the ice. Skaters will learn how to warm up like a champion, navigate freestyle sessions, and practice independently.
Skaters are strongly encouraged to continue their group lessons until their complete Learn to Skate USA Basic 1-6 or ISI Delta while they are enrolled in Aspire. Private lessons are also encouraged if skaters
Vivek J., Parent of Aspire Program Skater
I became a coach to help aspiring skaters avoid making the mistakes that I made. I've suffered injuries, and been exhausted and frustrated because I couldn't access the right program and tools to achieve my goals properly. I learned everything the hard way by seeking instruction, information, and inspiration.
My approach is unique because I am skilled in on-ice development and off-ice strength and conditioning to optimize on-ice performance, nutrition, and health coaching.
I now work with skaters, parents, and even other coaches – because I believe every skater deserves the opportunity to take their performance to the next level under the guidance of a coach who has been there and genuinely wants to help them succeed on the ice and in life!
Coach Aimée Skating Academy is a PSA Excellence on Ice awarded program, offering ice skating lessons and off-ice training in Morristown, Wayne, and Randolph, NJ.
