Skate UK has been a huge success story with around 200,000 people taking part over the last 10 years.

Coaches and rink managers can find out more about NISA’s ideas to develop Skate UK at a special presentation at iceSheffield on Tuesday, June 25 at 11:45am.

NISA chief executive, Nick Sellwood and David Hartley, development director at NISA, will talk about proposals for approved centres and Skate UK membership, which are designed to encourage participation.

The Skate UK learn-to-skate programme for beginners of all ages teaches the fundamental movements and basic skills emphasising fun and continuous movement. Every year, more than 70,000 take part in the scheme.

Nick Sellwood, chief executive of NISA, said: “Skate UK has been a huge success story with around 200,000 people taking part over the last 10 years.”

“We are keen to build on this by developing the scheme in the future with the ultimate aim of encourage people to participate in ice skating and to keep them in the sport.”

The 2013 British Solo Dance Championships will take place at iceSheffield from Monday 24 June to Friday 28 June 2013.

Almost 150 ice skaters from across the country will compete in 13 categories over five days at the popular competition.

The British Solo Dance Championships is thought, by many, to be one of NISA’s biggest and most popular events of the year.

Nick added: “We would encourage as many coaches and rink manager to come along to the presentation, hear about our plans and provide feedback.”
