Learn to Skate

Ice Skating is a fun and challenging way to get fit and improve flexibility.  Our Learn to Skate programme is suitable for total beginners right through to more experienced skaters who want to improve their technique.  Each stage has its own badge and certificate which you are able to purchase at reception.  You can work through the stages at your own pace as there is continuous assessment.

From toddlers to teenagers, to adults of any age, start by learning the basics of skating and, as you move through the levels, learn how to do a snow plough stop, backward skating and even a spin or a jump!

Deeside Leisure Centre boasts an Olympic sized ice rink with various courses suitable from 3 years of age upwards.  Our courses and instructors are approved by the National Ice Skating Association (NISA) and sessions run in six -week blocks so you can progress through the 10 levels in  Skate UK  at your own pace.  Once you have progressed through to level 10 you may choose to complete (NISA) ‘passport’ Bronze, Silver and Gold levels in either single skating or Dance.
