Learn to skate

Get skating with Aussie Skate, the national learn-to-skate program.

Aussie Skate is 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 skill development. You will earn badges as you learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are given in a group format and led by a certified professional coach. Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions lively using a wide variety of activities that create a fun environment and promote learning.

What does it cost?

The lesson cost varies rink to rink, but is around $225 for a 10 week term including skate hire.  In addition to the lesson fee, there is a yearly registration fee to Ice Skating Australia.  This is $30 for the first year and $17 for each subsequent year.

Ice Skating Victoria (ISV) membership is not required until you decide to compete.  This is only $100 per year.
