Figure Skating



Figure Skating is the most predominant of the ice codes in Gore, we are lucky enough to be allocated the most ice time and have a strong contingent of Figure Skaters competing every year. Starting out in Figure Skating is a personal choice on how to go about it, you can start in group lessons at kiwi skate, Adults sessions you can contact our coach directly for private group or one on one sessions.

Our resident coach Helen Sutherland 

NZIFSA level 1 Singles Coaching Accreditation. 

I have coached  twenty five plus years here in New Zealand and Canada.  

 I enjoy teaching all levels and ages.  I have had many areas of coaching.  This covers figure skating,  ice hockey power skating and skating skills,  synchronized skating,  Kiwi Skate and ice dance.   I work to help individuals achieve their  goals and I believe many skills learned through skating are life long foundations for future personal development.
