Ice Skating


The skating-course is offered by G.S.S.V. Tjas and is meant for beginning skaters. The course focuses mainly on skating techniques. According to your level you will be divided in groups and you’ll be trained by professional trainers. You need to bring your own skates for this course (otherwise you will have to rent ice skates for €6.00). It is not possible to join the course with hockeyskates or trick-ridingskates. It is mandatory to wear gloves and it is strongly recommended to wear something on the head!

Attention! The course is given at the covered skating rink at Kardinge.

G.S.S.V. Tjas

As a student in Groningen you can sharpen your skating technique on the long track at G.S.S.V. Tjas. This applies to both the absolute beginner and the advanced skater. There is also the possibility to become a speed skater for the real fanatics. Then you can go on the ice four times a week under the guidance of ACLO-trainers. During the training sessions, on so-called Tjashours, the rink is reserved for Tjas. Different groups, divided by level, and under the supervision of trainers, will work on your skating technique, which you can put to the test in club competitions. Do you like it? At Tjas you can join 3 free practices to see if you like it. In the winter, in addition to ice skating, you can also take part in a spinning lesson once a week and a gym training session. In addition to training in the winter, Tjas also offers:

  • Theme parties
  • Social drinks
  • Trips (abroad)
  • Member weekends

In the summer, Tjas organizes biweekly dry running/hard running training, weekly cycling training, and weekly inline skating training. Of course we also participate with several teams in the Batavierenrace, organize a barbecue, sprint clinic and cycling weekend in the Ardennes and much more!
