SHARP 4 Sports, partner of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy, services athletes, parents, and coaches from around the world. S4S is the high performance training program of the Academy aimed at providing accelerated developmental classes and individualized instruction both on and off the ice.
Those located in the region will have the unique opportunity to participate in weekly programming while having access to a high performance team of national to Olympic level coaches and professionals. Kori Ade and Heather Aseltine, the founders of the program, are ready to assist athletes at both FIC locations in reaching their goals!
SHARP 4 Sports is a proud participant of U.S. Figure Skating's Aspire Program. The Aspire program assists athletes with the transition from Learn-To-Skate into programming geared towards achieving tests and exploring the competitive world of the sport. Through the development of athleticism and artistry, skaters build a solid skill foundation that drives success on and off the ice.
As part of S4S's 6-month/annual membership package, Bridge Team 2 through Developmental Team 2 members will receive a complementary first year athlete membership with the Scott Hamilton Skating Club. The membership year runs from July 1 through June 30. The club offers quarterly test sessions, social events for skaters and families, and an incredible outlet for skaters to grow artistically, technically and socially. S4S is so excited to partner with the Scott Hamilton Skating Club in creating a community for all while they celebrate their love of skating.
Being a participant at Ford Ice Center Antioch or Bellevue allows skaters the opportunity to participate in weekly classes directed by the staff members who founded SHARP 4 Sports or those who were certified within our unique coach certification program.
All skaters participating in weekly programming will need have a current membership on file through SHARP 4 Sports. In order to streamline the registration process, you will be able to file your membership within the weekly class registration link.

All skaters involved in the program will be immersed into the SHARP or EDGE Track based on their birth date and current skill level. Both tracks have access to our highly qualified team of coaches, share weekly class options and utilize the same accelerated curriculum. Those participants in the SHARP Track will have one additional layer of monitoring to ensure they reach age specific milestones in their progress. These milestones are set to guide skaters to the junior international level of competition by the age of 15. By utilizing these benchmarks along the way, both coaches and families can have transparent conversations at any step of the athlete's journey in regards to their current process and opportunities for the future.
In order to prepare for your classes at the facility, please make sure you follow this checklist:
1) Using the blue links below, please register for the specific classes you are interested in taking during the indicated time frame. If you need to purchase a membership package (Bridge Team 2 and above), you can also do this within your registration.

3) Upon entering the facility, please check-in at the front desk or table near the rink entrance. Your coach will be awaiting your arrival on the ice .
To help accommodate all skaters and maximize our class and lesson availability, a 24-hour policy is in place for all lesson and class cancellation/class credit requests.

Upon registration, your skater will receive their own training binder customized with the curriculum and training tools needed to begin their first classes. Over time, as your athlete develops, additional specialized forms and guidance will be provided throughout each phase of their development.
Dress the part! It is important that all of the athletes (regardless of age) are ready to train for success. Our dress code requires skaters to dress in all black athletic apparel for each of their classes. Layers can be worn for warmth. Females are asked to have a bun in their hair.
After the first day of class, skaters are expected to bring their training binder to every class. Skills within their curriculum will be tested each week for progressive movement throughout each level. Skaters will continue to be challenged and can be passed to the next level at any time throughout the year.
