Skate for Gold, Skate for Fun, Skate for Life!

New & Improved:
Welcome to Skate UK 2.0!
We're excited to be introducing some big changes to Skate UK:

Our Skate UK App - providing you with the full content for our first three Skate UK levels for free, and much more!

Dispensation Pathways - recognising that progress doesn't need to look the same for everyone.

New coaching guidelines - helping coaches to deliver Skate UK inclusively, adapting styles and goals to suit different skaters' learning needs.


A simpler progress path - move through Skate UK levels with a clearer view of what you've achieved and what comes next!

Designed for all ages, Skate UK incorporates the essential ABCs of an ice skater’s development: Agility, Balance and Coordination. Together with the different learning phases: Discovering, Developing and Consolidating, the programme is designed to keep you engaged, build your confidence, and challenge your athletic and technical development. 

Skate UK courses are taught at many ice rinks across the UK - find your closest rink to see if they offer it!

Please Note: We're in the process of rolling out these latest Skate UK changes -

some rinks may still be teaching our classic Skate UK programme.

RINK MANAGERS: Find out how you can start offering the new Skate UK programme at your venue!
