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 an advanced 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!
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.

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.
