Gliding Stars of Western New York provides weekly adaptive ice skating lessons for children and adults with challenges in Niagara, Erie, and surrounding counties.
Our skating season runs from late September to early April. Skaters, or “Stars” skate weekly at Hyde Park’s Ice Pavilion in Niagara Falls or at the Nike Base in Hamburg. The program provides them the opportunity to learn, have fun, improve physical fitness, and develop lasting relationships. Gliding Stars supplies skating equipment (including specialized adaptive ice skates and safety gear), volunteer training and direct on-ice volunteer support. In our 41 years of experience in teaching people of all ages with challenges to ice skate, we have developed a proven teaching system in which Stars experience increased physical strength and agility, enhanced self-esteem and social skills from team interaction, goal achievement, and participation in the publicly attended annual ice show.
