Ice Arena Wales School Trips

Home / Wales / Glamorgan

Ice Arena Wales is the brand new ice rink in the heart of Cardiff's International Sports Village. For just £5, pupils can enjoy a 2 hour skate session. Penguin skating aids are available to hire and teachers skate free! Skate hire is included in the cost.

As an addition to our normal school skating sessions, we are introducing the option of educational ice skating lessons with our incredibly talented coaching team for the first 30 minutes of the session. This not only teaches the pupils 2 different types of ice skating styles but also enables them to learn new skills and grow in confidence before being set loose in the afternoon to practice their new moves. This is available at an extra charge and more information can be provided by emailing

We can also arrange for your group to watch a Cardiff Devils training session during their season from September to March. This is free of charge but requires consent from the club - please also email to enquire about this.

2. Ice skating with school friends can not only help develop social skills and create bonding friendships, but also teach good sportsmanship.

3. Learning a new skill is great fun and makes us all feel good!

4. Regular physical activity like ice skating can help combat the effects of end of term stress.
