Abu Dhabi Figure Skating Team (ADFST) is proud to announce that the skating family has grown with the addition of 16 talented skaters selected from the popular Learn to Skate programme! The children, aged between five and 11, moved to the next level and joined the first Young Talents skating course last month. This programme was designed especially for them, providing a way to transition between Learn to Skate and ADSFT courses. Motivated by the veteran skaters, the talented children put in a lot of effort on the ice to develop their existing skills and are working hard during off ice classes to perfect and learn new techniques. Edges, gliding exercises, spins, stretching or conditioning are not new vocabulary for them anymore! The children are also planning to join the upcoming competitions.
