We have a number of available coaches that will help you advance your skating skills.

First Time Skating

If it is your first time ice skating, the following tips may help:

  • Bring along a coat, hat and gloves
  • Wear long socks, not ankle socks
  • We hire out skates from size 5 (tiny size) through to size 14 (large adult size). There are also a limited number of double bladed boots for young children in sizes 5 through to 8 (half price). ┬áPlease note that children are encouraged to wear a single bladed skate during the ‘learn to skate’ programs.
