  4. How to get into figure skating

    Get Inspired


    Synchronised figure skating

    Skating doesn't have to be competitive. You can put on a pair of skates (which you can hire at rinks) and start gliding across the ice.

    However, it's best to make sure you can skate in a straight line before you attempt jumps and turns!

    If you're a beginner you can check out the National Ice Skating Association which has all the information on getting started in figure skating and you can also read our guide on how to get involved.
