Take your ice skating journey to the next level with the Learn to Skate USA app! This app is a benefit of membership and free for all Learn to Skate USA members. Log in using your Learn to Skate USA membership number and start earning badges right away.
Chart your progress and track your way to skill mastery using the digital record book, elevate your practice sessions with the daily practice tracker and earn badges for your trophy case with fun on- and off-ice challenges.
The practice tracker is designed to help skaters of all levels track the quantity and overall quality of a curated list of skills during a single practice session. Skills may be added from the Learn to Skate USA skills library or manually entered as a custom skill.
Skating Journey Badges and select Achievement Badges are linked to your enrollment record at your local Learn to Skate USA program. Passed a level but don’t see the badge in your trophy case? Check with your program director to ensure your skater record is up to date.
On- and off-Ice badges are linked to in-app challenges and the off-ice warm up in the Activities section of the app. New on-ice challenges are released each month, so check back regularly to see if a new badge is up for grabs!
Don’t forget to update your member profile with your skating interests. This helps the staff at Learn to Skate USA decide what types of challenges to release on a monthly basis.

Great app to track your ice skating practices
This app is amazing to track the skills you learn in class and track your practices each day. You also get badges for completing challenges!
User interface is very meh
The user interface is very basic, requires a lot of clicking around, and it doesn’t customize/remember you at all.
To add a skill to the practice calendar I have to click 7 different buttons: 1) click on the day, 2) click on the plus button in the corner, 3) click on add skill from library, 4) click on curriculum, 5) click on level, 6) check all of the skills to add, 7) click add to calendar, and then repeat for skills that show up in other levels. That’s like 7*2=14 clicks, not to mention scrolling and multiple skill selection. If the app could just save the fact that I am doing adult curriculum levels 3&4 it would cut that interaction in half, making it so much less awful.
I don’t want to have to scroll and click through every program in the record book when I just want to see something in adult 4 like always, it should have “starred” programs show up at the top of the page as shortcuts, or the record book stays “flipped open” to the program I’m working on.
Next, the page titles at the top take up maybe 1/8th of the screen, and the nav bar also takes up 1/8th of the screen, so it’s really like I’m only seeing the middle bit of my screen as useful window space. Get rid of the page titles to gain back content space. I don’t need the top of the page to say that I’m looking at a tracker, and the bottom of the page to also say I’m looking at a tracker, when it already looks like a tracker!
There are a lot more things you could add, feature-wise. For example, it would be helpful to have a “working on” feature. You could make skills show up in different colors whether you’re not working on them, working on them, or you've mastered them. Making use of color differentiation would be an easy and effective way to make the visual appearance better.
Sorry for the rant but I hope that someone will make this app better cause I want to use it for tracking my skating progress. I’m a college CS major and I’m tempted to start trying to write my own app but it would take me a while to learn iOS development.
