Summer Figure Skating Sessions

Southern Alberta Skating Academy is open to all registered Skate Canada skaters. Whether you home club with us, another club in southern Alberta or somewhere else in our great nation, we invite you to enjoy our sessions. Not from Lethbridge and want to train with us in the summer? Not a problem – you’re welcome to bring your own coach or train with our coaches. Need a place to stay? We can help arrange a billet family for one or more weeks in the summer.
