Camp

Our second, and final, Camp of the summer begins Tuesday, July 6th. If you wish to participate and have not signed up yet, you can do so by signing onto goleevo.com and choosing the July Camp. You must sign up by the first class to be able to participate, even if you will miss one or more of the classes. Remember that Camp is for skaters currently in Basic 5 and above. If you need help signing up, or have singed up by mistake and need help getting a refund, please let us know either in person or by email at contact@fscoflouisiana.com. If you were signed up for our last Camp, and are joining us again, we will be adding on to what you have learned thus far. Hope to see you all there!

Our 5K will be held on August 7th from 8 am-10 am, at St. Julien Park. The 5K is open to the public, not just skaters, so help us get the word out there!

Quotes

"An athlete gains so much knowledge by just participating in a sport. Focus, discipline, hard work, goal setting, and of course, the thrill of finally achieving your goals. These are all lessons in life."
