Any other parents with children learning ice skating?
Would be keen to find out if there are avenues to get 2nd hand skates as well. They outgrow their skates so quickly and new skates are seriously expensive.

Hello ZuEn! I have a friend who does figure skating, and she says it would be best not to get second hand skates, although it is cheaper than the new ones (I was planning to get new skates too). The second hand skates would take the shape of the previous owners feet, and your child's feet might be different from the previous owners', so the support will not be there.

(Just saying :) )

Ah... IC.
Anyway, I havent found many avenues to get 2nd hand skates and I wonder what should I do to DD's skate when she outgrows them.

I supposed your DD/ DS is learning? How old is she/ he? How advance is she/ he?

Hello!
I'm a 14yr Sec 2 student and I'm thinking of taking up figure skating. There's just one problem. I have never ice skated before. Never. I'm looking for recommendations of coaches that are dedicated and unafraid to push their students :) Do you have any rink recommendations too? Would you reckon I self-learn the basics before enlisting a coach? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Who have tried Kallang Ice world? I heard they conduct lessons ranging from beginner’s training to classes for the more aspiring skater.
