Excellence is achieved through passion, perseverance, hard work and talent. The Wheaton Ice Skating Academy provides a forum for children to pursue the highest competitive achievement in the stunning and breathtaking sport of ice skating. WISA was founded in 2003 by Russian and gold medal champions Alexei Kiliakov and Elena Novak. Their dream was to create a world class training program in the sport in which they have trained, competed, and performed internationally their entire lives. They have brought the most successful techniques from around the world to the Academy, while adding their own creative approach to develop a training system uniquely American.

Since its modest beginning ten years ago, Academy skaters as young as six have competed regionally and nationally, and skaters as young as thirteen have competed internationally with great success and joy. Competition is not a singular goal. Discipline, character development, and teamwork are skills children will use and depend on throughout their lives.

The Academy strives to make top-notch training affordable. No talented young skaters are excluded because of limited financial resources.
