Dear Monument Skating Family –
I wanted to take a moment to let you know about upcoming changes to the figure skating program at Monument Ice Rinks. Effective immediately, the 7k Skating Academy is no longer based out of Monument Ice Rinks. Coach Kori Ade and Emily Oltmanns are no longer coaching at Monument Ice Rink, and Heather Aseltine will no longer be administering the figure skating program. They have all contributed tremendously to the development of figure skating in Monument, and we are grateful for all of the energy and effort they put into the programs.
We are excited to announce the launch of our new program, The Skating Academy - Monument. The program will offer an inclusive and accessible skating experience for skaters of all levels in the Monument Ice Rinks.
Moving forward, freestyle sessions will be run through Monument Ice Rinks management and lessons will be coordinated directly with your coaches. No group classes will be offered this upcoming week.
Given the speed of this transition, I’m sure you have some questions, and I’ve done my best to answer them below:
How will freestyle sessions work?
I already purchased ice for next week(s) through the 7K website, what do I do?
What do I do for coaching?
Finally, I would like to welcome Tyler Shipstad and Karissa Woienski, who will be overseeing the development and operations of The Skating Academy - Monument’s figure skating program. Our goal is to create a vibrant community where everyone feels welcome, and we’re excited to be taking the first steps in the transition! Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll continue adding to the website and the program, so there will be many more updates coming. There may be some hiccups and bumps along the way, so we ask that you’ll be patient during the development; we appreciate any feedback you might have and are so excited to enhance the offerings of Monument Ice Rinks. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any of us if you have any questions!
Owner, Monument Ice Rinks
