Happy Kids

The Happy Kids weeks are at De Uithof during almost every school holiday. The children learn to skate in a playful way and we play fun games on the ice every day. We will conclude the last day in a festive manner with an official graduation ceremony (with a medal!), coloring page and a nice dinner together. Guaranteed the children will not be bored during the holiday.

Below you will find the skating levels of Skating School De Uithof. Do you need advice to determine your level? Please contact our Skating School.

Level Skills
Starting level This is an activity for the absolute beginner. You can't stand on the skates on the ice.
Level 1 At level 1 you can get onto the ice on the skates. No skating technique, but it does make progress.
Level 2 Can already push off sideways in the skating position. Can brake and accelerate.
Level 3 Has mastered the skating stance. Drop off sideways. Has a relaxed catch up. Can continue to slide straight on 1 leg. Has mastered the arm movement.
Level 4 Knows the basics of the turn but loses speed. Can do a round. Can drive a scaffolding.
Level 5 You have the corner under control and can also make extra speed there. You drive at least 5 rounds only in the skating position with a good arm movement.
Level 6 This is a training level for those with good technique. At high speed cornering is no problem. Sprint off and do longer rounds in succession. All this while maintaining technology.
Level 7 This is a competition level group.
