Attraction Information

Ice skating is a terrific sport for active families to do together which is not only both fun and entertaining but also increases fitness, grace and balance. And confidence, once you're good! What's not to like?! Everybody starts out moving like Bambi but most kids take to it just as fast as roller skating and with the extra activities available here for the experienced, they've got room to develop those skills further here too!

Blocks of lessons are available for the Skate school where you'll learn to travel forwards and backwards, how to stop, how to turn and how to hold yourself like a pro! Kids can also train at Ice Hockey here but only if they join the Braehead Junior team.

There's a special feature worthy of note for experienced types: those who have achieved Level 8 of the Skate Uk programme or higher are welcome to join the new Patch Figure sessions on Wednesday evenings! And FYI it's also the home of one of the UK's oldest ice hockey clubs, The Paisley Pirates, and Glasgow's only professional ice hockey team, The Braehead Clan! So if you're after a proper game to go to for inspiration this is your place!
