Learn to skate lessons – new block available
If you're looking for a new activity to enjoy, skating is a great way to help build confidence and develop co-ordination.
Suitable for all ability levels, our learn to skate programme follows the National Governing Body pathway and guides you through learn to skate badges 1-8.
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.
April – June 2022 block of lessons
Starts Saturday 23 April – Ends Sunday 19 June
We are delighted to be running a block of nine consecutive weeks of ice-skating lessons starting the weekend of Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April. Days and times are listed below.
Badges 1-3 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 try some skills on one foot. If you have never had a skating lesson before, we advise you to book on to Badge 1.
Badges 4-8 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.
Skate Star Bronze, Silver & 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.
£58.50 per person for a 9-week programme. This price includes skate hire if required.
Bookings open on Monday 11 April and sessions must be booked in advance.
Note: Booking account should be registered to the child attending the sessions and not the parent.
