Special Olympics Looking For Ice Skating Students

For 34 years, Trinity Special Olympics has been an accredited training program for Special Olympics athletes in the Greater Cleveland area. We offer ice skating instruction beginning with “how to ice skate,” all the way up to figure skating and short track speed skating. Instruction is done on a one-on-one basis by trained volunteer coaches from the community and adapted to the students' individual needs.

Our program is open to both children, 5 and over, and adults of all ages, who have intellectual disabilities, autism or cognitive delays. Students gain confidence and improved self-esteem through learning new skills, get exercise through vigorous activities and enjoy the socialization that comes with being part of a team organization. Ice skates, safety equipment and adaptive hardware are provided and students are also welcome to bring their own gear.

Classes are held on Sundays at the Serpentini (Winterhurst) Ice Rink, operated by IceLand USA at 14740 Lakewood Hts. Blvd Lakewood 44107 from September through April, broken down into three 8-week sessions.
