CHANGES TO BADGE CLASS STRUCTURE

We would like to take the chance to let you know that we are changing the format of our classes. At present skaters work through each badge then move up to the next. With skaters all developing and learning at different rates and with different needs, often some skaters move through quickly and others more slowly. This can be really hard on skaters if they are feel they don’t progress as well as others and can mean skaters who progress quickly spend time learning things they already know, or skipping important content.

We have decided therefore to use a different model in our classes, one used for other dance related sports. Each class will have two separate groups, skaters will stay in these groups for the whole year, irrelevant of progress, in the groups we will have several helpers so all levels of skating are catered for.

At the end of the year skaters will take part in the show and sit a small proficiency test and move to another group.

This way skaters stay with their group and will also have the opportunity to learn at their level without the constant shuffle of badge lines or badge tests. Skaters that finish term one in badge 1 or 2 will become the Bunny Hoppers, those that finished in Badges 3 & 4 will be the Spread Eagles. In class two we will have three groups. This will take effect from the beginning of term two. Times remain the same unless you have been told your skater is moving classes. Only the structure within the class will change.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, thanks May
