Ice school programme

View the September 2023 to July 2024 Ice School timetable


Skaters will undertake continual assessments against the criteria set out within the levels of the NISA Level Plan. Once a Skater has demonstrated a satisfactory level of competency in all elements of the criteria then they will be recommended to progress to the next level within the programme (this will be facilitated subject to the availability of suitable space).

Free access to public sessions

From September Ice course customers can skate for free on one public session per week, these sessions are restricted to daytime sessions, Monday to Friday, term-time only,. A zero-value ticket must be purchased from main reception before the session starts. For additional sessions, course customers are able to purchase tickets at a discounted price of £3.50 (same restrictions apply), this does not include skate hire.

1:1 lessons

These private sessions provide children / adults with individual attention and a faster learning rate. They can focus on either specific skating skills / technique or follow the relevant levels in the NISA Level Plan.

Due to current restrictions there is limited coaching time, but please leave your details with the Ice Coordinator ruth.woodstock@freedom-leisure.co.uk if you are interested in having 1:1 lessons, with as much detail as possible – days and times available, age and standard so we can best advise.
