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!
Within SHARP 4 Sports's overall programming framework, our bridge program is a proud participant of USFS'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 (S4S Bridge 1-6 Levels). 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 Bridge Team 6 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.
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 or a neat ponytail. After the first day of class, skaters are expected to bring their training binder to every class.
In-Person Testing Procedure: A two-step testing process is used to ensure skill mastery of a high standard. Strong foundational skills will only lead to more efficient progress when advanced skills are introduced during the next phase of development.
Step 1: A private coach or class instructor can recommend a skater's skill when it reaches a passing standard. This will alert the skater/family that a specific skill is ready to be performed during an official evaluation session.
Step 2: Test sessions will be offered in 15-minute increments in which a skater can run through multiple maneuvers in their curriculum. The evaluator will then be able to provide their official "mastery" sign-off if the skill is strong and shows consistency. Once a full list of signatures is achieved, a skater will progress to the next level within that track.
Virtual Testing Option:
- All coaches have the option of recommending skills to be evaluated by signing off on the "recommendation" column in the curriculum.
- Once all signatures are received, a skater can email a photo of their curriculum page along with their short video clips of each skill. (Send to: Admin@sharp4sports.com)
- Results/feedback will be provided back to the family and possible level advancement will be processed.
- A coach should film the athlete doing the skill 3 times (continuous filming, no edits) to show consistency and mastery.
- The skater should be in close proximity to the coach for clear viewing purposes.
- Videos can be captured during practice ice or a private lesson.
Test Session Dress Code: Skaters should approach these sessions as they would an official test session with USFS. A dress (black preferred) should be worn with a bun or neat ponytail.
