Skills School is new program that is being implemented by NISA and GB Short Track that helps complete the Pathway from Clubs to World Class Programme. The Skills School Program aims to develop and enhance athletes' skills and fundamentals of skating. The emphasis is on development rather than performance. The Skills School Programme is aimed at currently active club skaters aged 11 - 16y, and those that have been members of a speed skating club for at least 6 months.

Are you:
  • Actively skating at a short track speed skating club?
  • Aged between 11-16y on the date of the Skills School Camp?
  • Have a desire to learn and improve your Short Track Speed Skating Skills?

Skills School Details:

Over the next 12 months the full Skills School programme will consist of 7x 1 day sessions and 1x 3 day camp, run out of the National Ice Centre in Nottingham. Not all sessions are compulsory, skaters are able to sign up to as much or little as they want. Each day will cost £25, and is subsidized by ISU funding (reducing the cost of attending for you). If you attend all days the maximum cost will be £250 (i.e. 10 days at £25 per day).
