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 Scotland as well as supporting the development of Inclusive Skating clubs.
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. Pairs will also be joining 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, Ireland, Canada, Austria, Russia, Iceland, USA and Finland
So come and join us and let’s see ‘skating for all!’.
