Kiwi Skate

We are proud to offer the nationally accredited Kiwi Skate program for children 14 years and younger. Our Kiwi Skate classes are coached by nationally qualified coaches and we are lucky to have professional coach Grant Howie as our programme director. The skilled and knowledgeable coaching staff are committed to making sure your children achieve their full potential on the ice.

The Programme

The programme focuses on the fundamental skating skills from learning how to fall properly and stand up again through to backwards skating, pivots and crossovers. All of these skills are crucial regardless if you wish to be a hockey player, figure skater, speed skater, or just enjoy being on the ice.

 

You’ll be amazed at the progress your child makes. From not being able to stand to racing around the ice like they were born with skates on. Our classes are designed with lots of games that are fun and promote good skating skills and will have your child excelling in no time!

What To Wear

While it may not be cold outside, enjoying the ice comes with a chilly environment. We recommend wearing a few layers even though you will likely warm up once you start skating. The most important items are:

 

  • A jacket or warm jumper
  • A beanie and gloves to keep your head and hands warm
  • Long, thick socks to make your skates nice and comfy
