We welcome all students, no matter what your level is, from beginner to national top-level. As an international student you have several possibilities to master ice skating (a typical Dutch sport) and discover the pleasures of gliding over smooth ice fast. 

1. Become a member of SKITS
2. Participate in the regular skatecourses for all students
3. The short term course for international students to master the first steps:
    Four lessons, 30 euros (Including entrance fee and use of skates).
