About Adult Skating

Adult Skating these days includes not only those skaters who have grown up with the sport from their early years, but also people who have taken up the sport as adults.

Adults take part in all disciplines including Single, Pair, Ice Dance, Synchronized Skating and Theatre On Ice.

There are two major ISU Adult competitions – one in May at Oberstdorf, Germany and the other in North America each fall.  These are for adult skaters who have reached at least the age of twenty eight (28) and Synchronized skaters at least the age of twenty five (25).

In Australia skaters can start competing in Adult divisions at eighteen (18).

The Aussie Skate program also incorporates a learn-to-skate stream for adults!
