World Ice Skating Day

World Ice Skating Day (WISD) is synonymous to fun and festivities. It is one day dedicated to celebrating Ice skating across the world in the form of a global ice-skating festival.

Depending on the type of WISD planned by your local rink, first time skaters will be provided with free coaching sessions, skill development and injury prevention sessions for intermediate skaters, along with free skating for the whole family. All this in the company of food and refreshments, topped by a skating exhibition of the best skaters from your region.
