Learn to Skate Advice

The Learn to Skate sessions always begin at the stated times therefore, skaters should arrive at the arena 30 minutes before the lessons are due to start on Saturday and Sunday, and 15 minutes before on a Monday and Tuesday. This allows time for Admission to the arena and Skate Hire.

Lessons are done on a badge system and beginners have the first lesson. Late comers should be advised that they will have missed their lesson.

Anyone coming to our Learn to Skate sessions should be able to move around on the ice by themselves and take instructions from the Coaches. Helpers are not allowed on the ice.

For children under 5 we have Snow baby sessions twice a week which allow children to become familiar with being on the ice and meeting the skating Coaches. An adult accompanies the child on the ice for these sessions to help the child.
