The development and operation of Inclusive Skating events is one of the most important activities of Inclusive Skating.
The first Inclusive Skating event was held as an international club competition in Dumfries, Scotland on May 12th and 13th 2012. See the Dumfries event 2012 page for further details and the Classification Handbook, Announcement and Entry form.
Inclusive Skating has been developing classification and the technical rules for Inclusive Skating events ever since. The aim is to include as many skaters with impairment as possible and to give Inclusive Skaters as many opportunities as possible.
The IPC requires all paralympic sports to have a classification code and classifiers. This is a good practice that is followed by inclusive Skating. Skating classifiers will determine if the skater has an impairment and whether that impairment affects the ability to skate. We have a drafted code of classification and handbook and Inclusive Skating have suitably qualified people to form a classification panel.
Skaters who wish to take part in IS skating competitions should prepare a skating programme that matches their current technical ability. Please refer to the current Technical Handbook and the latest Event Announcement. Your coach can help you decide what level best matches your technical skill level. Speed and solo dance, free dance and synchro events are also available.
