Lessons & Coaching
At Ice Aberdeen we deliver the British Ice Skating Skate UK syllabus.
From total beginners to advanced skaters, our extensive programme of ice skating lessons is a fun, safe and great way to increase your skating skills and gain confidence on the ice. All ice skating lessons are taught by one of our friendly, experienced, British Ice Skating professional ice coaches and are available on a variety of days and times.
Most lessons are delivered in small groups, although private individual lessons are also available. For under 5s we recommend parent and toddler sessions.
Ice Skating Lessons
Our ice skating lessons run as a continuous 50-week programme payable by direct debit, with a minimum contract of one month. There is a two-week break over the Christmas period.
As part of the Ice Aberdeen programme of activities, you can play Ice Hockey at the Linx Ice Arena.
Hockey For All
Hockey For All (HFA) was introduced in Aberdeen to encourage the uptake of ice hockey by young people over the age of 16, who may have always had an interest but no opportunity to join a league playing team. Whilst the minimum age is 16, there is no upper age limit.
HFA is suitable for beginners with basic skating skills. The ability to stop is optional as the barrier will do the job if you can’t! This session is totally non-contact and only open to non-league players.
HFA is run by fully qualified ice hockey coaches. Beginners are also assisted by a number of the better players who attend.
Two sets of loan equipment are available on a first come first served basis.
Sessions: Saturday 16:00-17:15 with additional ice time when available and advised on HFA Aberdeen Facebook page.
|Ice Hockey Session||£10.20|
