With the Learn to Skate programme at Zayed Sports City filled nearly to capacity, many parents want to get in on the action. Coming with varied levels of experience – from first steps to proficient skaters, a new class series has been created to help achieve their goals.

Adult sessions of Learn to Skate started in the first week of November and are gaining a following already. Similar to the youth programme, the course includes four lessons of 30 minutes each. They will help adults master the basics and become confident. Participants who had never laced up skates before are gaining skills so that they can take their children skating as a family. Others, who vaguely remember skating as children, are picking up where they left off, learning simple movements, and former skaters are getting lessons in more sophisticated technique.

Each course costs AED 280. The next set of courses begins on 13 December and will run into January.
