Our learn to skate programme follows the National Governing Body pathway, which guides you through the learn to skate badges 1–8.

All lessons take place at The PEAK for ages 5–16 years and are suitable for all ability levels.

Our expert coaches will make sure you do this in a safe learning environment.

Once you have completed badge 8 you will graduate into our advanced skate star programme which takes you through bronze, silver and gold levels.

What badge/level should I book?

DAYS: Saturday or Sunday

TIME: 12.15pm–1.15pm

Badges 1–6 will provide you with the fundamental skills for skating. You will learn how to move forwards and backwards on the ice, as well as how to stop and how to get back up again safely if you fall. You will progress to gliding movements and also try some skills on one foot. If you have never had a skating lesson before, we advise you to book on to Badge 1.

DAYS: Saturday or Sunday

TIME: 1.25pm–2.25pm

Badges 5–8 are for those who have achieved, or are an equivalent standard to, Badge 3 or above. By this stage, you should be proficient in skating forwards and backwards with ease. Here you will learn and develop new and exciting skills.

DAYS: Saturday or Sunday

Skate Star Bronze, Silver and Gold sessions are for those who have achieved Skate UK Badge 8, or an equivalent level. Here you will learn more advanced skills and balance techniques on the ice. This is an introductory level for those who wish to learn to jump and spin.
