Ice Skating makes a great Birthday Party outing.
Check with your local rink for special prices on group admission and party deals for food.
A group lesson can help get the party started, giving you and your guests some skills to play with.
If you have tried Ice Skating and want to take the next step, why not enrol on a course of Ice Skating Classes?
Deeside Ice Rink (North Wales) and Lee Valley Ice Rink (London) offer Classes throughout the week.
If the rink classes aren’t at a convenient time for you, you can still learn the basics with an instructor in a series of private lessons.
Taking the grades
The National Ice Skating Association’s (NISA) Skate UK grades programme is the nationally recognised syllabus for learning basic ice skating skills.
Skaters are taught and assessed by the instructors at this beginner level, keeping a more relaxed atmosphere during skill development checks.
Skaters receive a grade card to document their progress which should be kept safe in their skate bag ready for assessment days.
Badges and certificates are available on passing each grade.
