Kiwi Skate

We are proud to offer the nationally accredited Kiwi Skate programme for children 14 years and younger.

The Programme

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 want to enjoy time on the ice.

The Teacher

Kiwi Skate classes are organised by ex-professional skater Tanya Bakerman. Tanya comes to us from Boston where she is a two-time US National pairs competitor and a ISI Freestyle 10 World Champion. For the past 11 years Tanya has been performing worldwide as a professional figure skater with Disney on Ice and Royal Caribbean International Cruise Ships. Tanya now brings her passion and excitement for the ice to the next generation of skaters in Dunedin. She is assisted by nationally qualified coaches, together these skilled and knowledgeable coaching staff are committed to making sure your children achieve their full potential 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.

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
