Who we are
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 through the ISU for ice skating to become a paralympic sport. We are now a charity and supporters are establishing clubs and projects across the world.
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 and we now hold an annual ice skating competition in Dumfries, Scotland. So far we have had skaters from Scotland, England, Ireland, Canada, Iceland, USA and Finland competing in figure, dance and speed skating competition. We also had a demonstration of pairs from an Icelandic inclusive pair and a synchro demonstration from the SPICE club from Slough in England! The latest Inclusive Skating Event was successfully held in Reykyavik Iceland on May 23 to 25 2014.
Here are some FAQs….
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 have been created and are used in competition.
We are seeking support and participation from clubs all over the world.
So come and join us and let’s see ‘skating for all!’.
