Who we are
Founded by Margarita Sweeney-Baird, we started as a working group with a wide range of skills that came together for a common purpose: to develop ice skating for skaters with a disability or an impairment and obtain recognition for ice skating to become a paralympic sport. We have an established charity and supporters are establishing clubs and projects across the world and building towards our first World Championship.
What we do
We seek to develop ice skating as a sport that will include all skaters with a disability or an impairment in the UK and globally. We hold a major annual ice skating competition in Scotland and support the development of Inclusive Skating clubs and competitions across the world for the disabled.
We have developed Rules of Competition and a Classification Code that allows skaters with any form of disability or an impairment (visual, hearing, physical or intellectual) to compete together on an equal basis in figure, dance and speed skating competition. All skating disciplines are now included in the programme of events.
We are seeking support and participation from clubs all over the world. So far we have had skaters from Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, Canada, Austria, Russia, Iceland, USA and Finland
So come and join us and let’s see ‘skating for all!’.
