Beginners Guide To Skating

  • We recommend that you wear warm clothing for ice skating and include a thick pair of socks but avoid loose and bulky clothes which may hamper your movement on the ice.
  • Where gloves are not essential we suggest you take them even if its just to keep your hands warm! Please leave hats and scarfs at home!!!
  • When hiring boots its important that they fit correctly supporting your ankles while still being comfortable. You may find that you need to try more than one size.
  • Boots should be laced tightly so they can fully support your ankles.
  • Skating can be dangerous so participating is at your own risk, children under the age of 10 years must be accompanied by an appropriate adult.
  • Please be aware that cuts and injuries can occur from falls and collisions with fellow ice skaters, so please take care and enjoy your session by skating within your own ability.
  • Please do not carry young children on the ice and be aware of your surroundings and the public notices displayed in the ice arena.
  • Please do not skate while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • The use of mobile phones on the skating pad is strictly prohibited.
  • The ice staff at Inverness Ice Centre are trained first aider's so in the event of an accident, please ensure you make a member of staff aware.
