Tees Active, Stockton Sports Development and Tees Valley Sport have combined forces to utilise funding from Sportivate to deliver a 6 week Learn to Skate Course for only £6.
Sportivate is a £56 million Lottery programme that gives 11-25 year olds access to six-week courses in a range of sports. The programme is aimed at those who are not currently choosing to take part in sport in their own time, or are doing so for a very limited amount of time, and will support them to continue playing sport in their community after the six weeks is up.
The course which will be delivered by two of the resident ice skating professionals at Billingham Forum Ice Arena who will take you through the basics of skating forwards, backwards and more importantly how to stop.
The course will be held on Monday nights between 7.30-8.30pm and commences on Monday 24th June and will be held over the following 6 weeks.
Allan McDermott Tees Active Sports Academy said “This is a fantastic opportunity for participants to receive expert tuition for a massively discounted price. We hope participants will learn a new skill in a friendly, fun and informal manner. Hopefully our new skaters will be inspired to continue skating after the course as there are numerous opportunities at Billingham Forum Ice Arena to pursue their new sporting interest.
