Learn to skate

Learning to skate in Australia is simple with Ice Skating Australia’s Aussie Skate program.

Aussie Skate is the national learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. When you sign up for Aussie Skate you will be in a program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. You will earn badges and other incentives as you learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are given in a group format and led by a certified professional coach.

Aussie Skate is the feeder program to all other Australian skating programs, from club competition to National Championships and along the Olympic pathway. Aussie Skate is also the feeder program in to Ice Hockey and Speed Skating.
