Ideal for children aged 2-5 years, our ice skating lessons will have your little one having fun skating to music and playing with toys like our sledges and penguins, all whilst secretly perfecting skills like balance and co-ordination.

The lessons are also a great way for your child to meet new friends and be introduced to a new sport that they can enjoy as they grow.

Our Skate Tots ice skating class has exclusive use of the ice rink for the full 30 minutes so you don’t have to worry about it being too busy.

Our qualified ice skating coaches will be there to supervise and will tailor fun games and activities to help your child work towards the British Ice Skating’s Skate Tots criteria.
