People of all ages enjoy ice-skating. Skating can improve your fitness, stamina and your waistline. Ice Rinks in WA all have programs that beginners can go to learn to skate as well as ice-hockey and figure skating programs. Some rinks also have short track speed skating programs too.

You will earn badges and other incentives as you learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are given in a group format and led by a certified professional coach.

Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions lively using a wide variety of activities that create a fun (active activities) environment and promote learning. Aussie SkateTM is the feeder program to all other Australian skating programs, from club competition to National championships and along the Olympic pathway. Aussie SkateTM is also the feeder program in to Ice Hockey and Speed Skating.
