- Don’t be afraid to fall! It happens to every skater. Simply tuck in your hands – it’ll keep other skaters from running over your fingers – and get right back up again.
- Try it again. If you attempt a move and hit the ground instead, attempt it again immediately – otherwise, your fear might get the better of you.
- Learn to stop. This is one of the most important ice skating tips for beginners. Many skaters start out learning maneuvers first, then learning to stop later. Avoid crashing into the wall by learning a simple snowplow stop early on.
- March before you glide. Ice marching can be a good precursor to skating because it helps beginning skaters gain balance and familiarity with the ice.
