I Can Excel – Parent Info

A Premier After School Program

I Can Excel (ICE) is FSH’s premiere after-school program that improves student academics, encourages active lifestyles, and strengthens leadership skills in girls ages 6-18. At the start of every season, each girl makes a commitment to attend 9-15 hours per week of on-ice instruction and off-ice educational programming, and receives the support of more than 50 tutors, teachers, social workers, counselors and skating coaches. Students receive team warm-up suits and use of skating equipment for the season, and are expected to attend between 3 and 5 afternoons per week. All students perform in the end of season Ice Show and awards banquet. Students may audition for a spot on one of three synchronized skating teams.
