Family Center is Top 100 Reasons Why We Love Beaver Dam! 

The Beaver Dam Family Center has been a city fixture for more than 30 years, providing a positive environment and healthy outlet for the community. Since opening its doors, the Family Center has been a second home for thousands of area figure skaters and hockey players and many of its current athletes and parents were excited to take part in this video tribute naming it as one of the 100 things they love about the City of Beaver Dam. 


New! Therapeutic Recreation/Special Olympics Class

The Beaver Dam Family Center and the Swan City Ice Skaters are proud to announce a new class, Therapeutic Recreation/Special Olympics

 "Ice skating can be fun and beneficial for both individuals with and without disabilities. It is suggested that ice skating can positively impact social skills, physical strength and balance, and improve mood for individuals with various disabilities. Ice skating can be a fun means of physical activity and exercise for any one of any ability. Skaters with a wide range of abilities have enjoyed learning to ice skate. Ice skating can offer therapeutic benefits and most importantly it is fun for everyone. Ice skating is a great way to meet friends and gain a sense of achievement. The skills that are learned on the ice can also transcend into other areas of life thus improving our quality of life. In ice skating just as in life skaters with disabilities learn to fall, never give up, and get back up to accomplish their dreams." (USFSA Website)

This class will be taught under the direction of Karlee Blowers who is a certified USFSA coach and a special education teacher in the Waupun Public School District. She has skated for 20+ years and coached regular and adaptive classes for the past 10 years in Illinois, Utah, and Wisconsin. 

Children and adults with special physical and developmental challenges are encouraged to sign up who would like to experience the benefits of figure skating but need some additional supports. These supports may include smaller class sizes, off ice sessions to become accustomed to figure skates, adapted curriculum from USFSA, and adaptive equipment such as an ice walker or adult support. A helmet, gloves, and knee/elbow pads are encouraged for safety. This class is not encouraged for children and adults who have aggressive behaviors as it can be a unsafe for the coaching staff and others involved in the class.To learn more about the Therapeutic and Special Olympics curriculum, please visit: http://www.usfsa.org/programs?id=84117. If you are unsure if this class is an appropriate choice, please contact Karlee at karleeblowers@gmail.com.
