NISA launches Skate UK 1-8 with GLL

The National Ice Skating Association (NISA) is proud to announce that they will be working alongside national leisure enterprise Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL) to launch a brand new Skate UK course at three UK ice rinks this September.

Charitable social enterprise, GLL runs over 170 sport and leisure facilities and libraries on behalf of local authorities in London and elsewhere in England and is the largest operator of accessible sports and leisure centres in the UK.

As of 7th September 2015 they will be working in partnership with NISA meaning that skaters at Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre, Sobell Leisure Centre and Link Leisure Centre in Swindon will be able to enrol onto the Skate UK 1-8 programme.

Skate UK is the only Learn to Skate programme officially recognised by NISA, making it a key programme for young talent looking to begin a career in ice skating. The lessons are delivered by NISA accredited coaches and combine fun with learning, enabling skaters to gain fundamental skills through eight developmental stages.

Becky Corne, Ice Skating Support Officer at NISA, said:

“We’re really pleased to be working alongside such a well-known organisation which runs over 170 sports and leisure facilities. The new partnership between NISA and GLL is a fantastic opportunity and together we will continue to raise the awareness of ice skating in the UK.”
