Skating School

Learn to Skate

Ice skating is an enjoyable rewarding free-time activity for both girls and boys.

Skating school pupils learn basic skills: how to stay up and fall safely, skating forward and backward, gliding, braking etc. When the children master the basics, they continue to practice the different moves of figure skating.

The skaters are divided into small groups so that each child can be given training that suits his/her individual level. HTK (Helsinki Figure Skating Club) has competent trainers who know how to ensure that the training in small groups takes place in a positive and encouraging atmosphere.

Choose the time and place most suitable for you and register either at the ice rink before the class, or via email to our office luistelukoulu(at)helsingintaitoluisteluklubi.com.
