Our fun family sessions are the perfect opportunity for kids & parents alike to enjoy our first entry steps onto the ice.

Axel, Puck & skip all started in these sessions enjoying the freedom of a winter wonderland using our toys, sledges and penguins to have the "first steps" to the pleasures of ice skating. Our ice staffs are on hand to help guide the toddlers and sometimes the adults as well through the basics of finding their feet on the ice.

There's a no pressure approach and the aim of the session is for them to learn skating through play After your first session you will be hooked and looking forward to the next straight away.
