Looking for new and exciting ways to help your students explore movement, develop physical skills and create a positive attitude towards physical activity? 

Alpine Ice is excited to introduce their program for schools designed specifically for year 1 to 8 students. Students will love the experience of participating in this fun and educational program.  The structured lessons encourage good attitudes towards physical activity and explore the relationships between the students and others.

At Alpine Ice, we believe in life long learning and fitness for life. Learning to skate provides students with skills, friendships and a leisure activity, which may last for a lifetime. 

The program allows you to tailor and develop a unit study for 6-8 weeks around ice, winter themes and sports to suit your students' needs. There are many ideas that we could develop together to create a fun learning environment specific to your group.

Some examples are:

  • On-ice skill sessions to learn basic skating skills (based on the National badge system)

  • School presentations by Alpine Ice staff - for example: ice sports, ice making and maintenance

  • Science project - for example: how ice is formed

  • Health

  • Art

  • Creative Writing

  • Technology - for example: how skates are made

  • Social Studies - for example: Winter Olympics, Cool Runnings
