2019 saw us launch our very successful learn to skate programs. Last year we had intended to run two learn to skate programs but with the stadium closed for an extended period due to Covid, we were unable to do this. But here's the exciting news! We're back and this year we are starting our next program on 14th March.


Sundays are from 4pm to 6pm (on skates) and we start at 3.45 and run a 15 minutes off skate warm up prior to each class beginning as well. We will provide you a dedicated coach each Sunday.

Fridays run from 7pm to 9pm. This is a night where you will have space to continue practising all your skills that you are learning and work on all the new great things you're learning.

The program teaches you to skate, stop, fall safely, do crossovers and other basic skills. You can borrow skates, padding and a helmet for the duration of your first learn to skate program (but numbers are limited so make sure you get in quick to secure your size). After the first program you need to get your own gear. But this way you can try all the skating without having to invest in skates and safety gear until you know you're committed. You'll need to supply your own mouth guard (because no one wants a second hand one of those - ewww).

Cost for the entire program is $240.00 this includes:


  • your $85.00 Skate Victoria insurance for the year (please note this MUST be paid directly to Skate Victoria together with your completed insurance form before you can commence skating with us);

  • $40.00 CCRDU annual membership fee; and

  • $115.00 which is the cost of the 10 week program.


This is an absolute bargain for 4 hours of skating time per week.

If you want to join, then fill out the Learn to Skate Membership Form (by clicking on the 2021 Learn to Skate Membership Form image on this page), complete the Skate Victoria form (by clicking on the Skate Victoria insurance form image on this page) and contact us to advise you have completed all forms and sent the payments to both Skate Victoria and CCRDU by clicking the link below. Remember, places fill up fast every year so don't miss out!

This will be on a first come, first served basis - so sign up now if you want to reserve your gear for our 2021 intake. Once your size is gone there's no guarantee of having gear available for you to use. You can sign up by completing the membership form, paying the membership fees and paying the Skate Victoria insurance fee (links to forms and Skate Victoria insurance are on this page). Once all of these are confirmed you can send your sizing details by clicking the sign up now button below.
