Ice Skating is a centuries old winter activity that takes place on thick ice. It involves a person wearing ice skates to move across the ice. Nowadays, they are several varieties of Ice Skating, ranging from Recreational Ice Skating on rinks to Figure Skating, Ice Hockey and Ice Skating Races. It is hugely popular in many countries around the world that have cold enough winter weather to allow the formation of ice thick enough to skate on. Additionally, indoor Ice Skating rinks allow for Ice Skating year round.

Common Injuries whilst Ice Skating
- Ligament damage
- Broken Bones
If you do some damage to your nerves while Ice Skating it is important to rest for a couple of days and keep the injured limb elevated. Apply ice as this will ease pain and reduce swelling. After a couple of days you can use heat pads to encourage blood flow back to the injured area. For more serious injuries you should consult a Doctor.
Ice Skating on a frozen river or lake is much more dangerous as the thickness of the ice is not consistent. If you fall through you may be at risk of hypothermia, or even drowning. It is best to only skate on designated areas and if in doubt, do not skate at all. Make sure your skates are the right size for you and are laced up properly.
If you are considering Ice Skating for the first time, make sure you receive help and instruction from someone experienced or ideally a Professional Instructor.
You must ensure that you do not participate in Ice Skating for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
