About the BRSA

    Welcome to the BRSA!!

    The Big Rapids Skating Academy (BRSA) is a group learn-to-skate program. All skaters should begin their skating careers here, whether their plans are to become a figure skater, hockey player, speed skater, or they just want to develop a healthy life style. The BRSA utilizes the US Figure Skating's Basic Skills program and is endorsed by USA Hockey. Not only do skaters from the ages 3 years to adult learn how to skate forward and backward,  they can learn balance elements, basic turns, spins.....even jumps!
    A strong skating foundation is formed while progressing through the various Basic Skills levels so that once a skater has graduated (completed) from the Basic Skills program, they are ready to focus their skating toward any ice skating discipline: figure skating, hockey, speed skating, pairs, ice dance, synchronized skating, etc.
    The BRSA is organized and functions under the guidance of Skating Director, Daphne S Solis.  Please check out all of the information on this site and if you have any questions feel free to contact Daphne.
