Based on the information you as the parent or skater provide at registration, skaters are grouped by badge or ability level. Fitting new skaters into groups is done by coaches at the beginning of the first session. Some adjustments in the first few weeks are to be expected. Often skaters who excel will be moved up to a higher group where they will be more challenged. Likewise, skaters who fall behind may be moved to a group where they will fit and feel better about their skating.
