Attending Skate School Lesson

Arrive 30 minutes prior to your lesson start time to register your details at the information desk. Please allow sufficient time for parking and registration to ensure you are ready to commence your lesson on time. Each skater will be evaluated on the first day they attend to ensure the level matches the skater’s ability. Remember: Skaters progress individually at their own pace.

What to wear

Dress warmly and bring gloves, socks, long pants and jumper. Bring an inline helmet if you have one.

Having your own Skates

Once you reach ‘Skate School – Level 3’ or even sooner, it is time to think about purchasing your own skates. It is important to have good equipment when participating in any sport and to take good care of it. Comfortable equipment will help the skater to progress much faster. You can pop into iSkate Canterbury where proprietor Margaret Scott and staff provide expert advice for all disciplines on boots, blades and accessories, as well as quality skate sharpening. 

Make sure your boots fit correctly with these quick tips:

  • Laces should be done up right to the top, do not leave out any holes
  • Your heel should not slip up or down when the boot is laced
  • To tighten your laces start pulling the clack from the bottom trying to keep an even pressure, keep lace as firm as possible
  • Be careful not to tighten too much as circulation can be affected
  • Tie off lace at the top and make sure no lace is hanging
  • You should be able to walk without too much difficulty. If you can’t you certainly will not be able to skate
  • If you wobble a lot when walking check the lacing and the size
  • DO NOT walk on concrete or any similar surfaces, as this will ruin the blades. Skate guards can be purchased from the skate shop to protect the blades. Walk on only rubber matting with uncovered blades.

Practice Sessions

You should be coming to the ice rink for at least one additional practice throughout the week to revise what you are learning in your Skate School Lessons. Visit Figure Practice Session times here (link to session calendar). To participate in a Figure Practice Session, you must be receiving lessons from a private coach for safety reasons and must comply with the expectations of the session.

Level Evaluation

The objective for each skater is to move through Skate School Levels from 1 to 8 at their own pace. They will be evaluated when the Skate School Coach feels that they are ready to move to the next level. After each evaluation the skater will receive a certificate marking their achievements for the level at which they have been evaluated.

FAQs

You are not required to book for lessons, however we do suggest to arrive at the rink well before the commencement of the start time so you can find parking and fit your skates ready to commence the lesson. 

You should arrive at least 30 minutes before your Learn to Skate lesson, and at least 20 minutes before any School Holiday Learn to Skate lesson. This is to allow time for parking, admission into the rink, any required registration and fitting of skates so you are ready to go for the start of your lesson. 

Your bulk entry Learn to Skate card is valid for no more than 6 months from the date of issue. 

No extension is allowed unless you have extenuating circumstances. Management must approve any extension. 

Learn to Skate cards are not transferable and must not be shared with another person or family member. Management must approve any sharing of a card.

The Guest pass allows another person free entry to one introductory lesson in any Learn to Skate program. Person must be a new skater and not be registered in any of our Learn to Skate programs.  

Family discounts apply to immediate family members only (e.g. mother, father, son or daughter). 

We suggest that you start in Skate School with group classes, then as ability increases and you progress to higher levels, Private Lessons can be arranged from there. Please email admin@canterburyolympicicerink.org.au for more information.

FAQs

It is advisable to arrive at least 20 minutes before the start time to find parking, admission into the rink, and completion of any registration details and fitting of your skates. You should be ready to step onto the ice with your skates on at the posted start time for the lesson (usually 10.00am).

Yes. A quick registration is required on the day of your lesson. 

It’s never too early to begin private lessons. Private lessons are available to complement Skate School Lessons from our Skate School Coaches, as well as from other accredited and experienced coaches. Private coaching usually starts in ‘Skate School - Level 3’ or even before. With one on one instruction, your skating coach can focus on the individual skater, providing expert guidance and helping the skater move through the levels at a faster pace.

Skaters seeking private lessons are advised to attend a Skate School Lesson to observe the coaches as they conduct their lessons and see which coaching style and personality suits their needs. Skaters may approach coaches after the session has finished to request availability and pricing for private lessons. Please note each coach has his or her own lesson fee and lesson schedule, this fee is in addition to the rink entry fee at cashiers desk.

If you would like to participate in in-house events such as recitals and camps please advise your Learn to Skate Coach.

Once you have progressed through the Skate School or even while you are still going through the various levels, you have the opportunity to move into competitions run by the NSW Ice Skating Association and/or the rink’s home skating club, the Sydney Figure Skating Club.

Choosing A Private Coach

Finding the right teacher is a crucial part of learning to skate. Many factors are involved, including individual personalities, learning styles, experience and technical know-how. Many skaters start out with group classes and then move on to private lessons from there. The direction you take depends on what your goals are and what you want to get of your skating.

List your goals or at least have one in your mind indicating what you are looking for in a coach. Ask, What do I want this coach to do for me technically? Emotionally? – Go into the rink and see the coach/s in action. – How does the coach respond to problems and obstacles – Would that be a good way for you> - Do you think you would respond well to the way the coach is handling a situation?

Another thing to think about is whether the technique being taught is compatible with what you hope to achieve. Do you like the way a particular coach’s skaters look on the ice – Is their posture good – Do they have power and flow in their stroking – Do the skaters truly BEND in the knees an ankles – Is the free leg extended, toes pointed – Is there good contact with the ice – Do jumps have height and distance – Are spins centred with good body alignment?

Since most of the coaches have skaters of varying level and ability, you’ll have to watch a number of students to make a fair evaluation.

Changing Coach

For various reason, there may come a time when it’s necessary to find a new teacher. Maybe a skater is no longer making progress or the relationship is no longer effective. Perhaps the skater needs to move to a higher level coach to continue up the ladder. For what ever reason the change need to be made, make an effort to notify the coach privately, in a discreet and courteous manner, and settle outstanding bills before starting out with a new coach.
