The best way to learn to skate is generally to join one of our development clubs that operate from The Ice Station. And of course, to skate as often as possible – practice makes perfect. Once you’ve mastered the basics of skating it is an easy transition to a future of ice hockey or figure skating with our resident Professional Coaches.
