About GLIDING STARS

Mission Statement

IT IS THE PHILOSOPHY OF GLIDING STARS TO USE THE SPORT OF ICE-SKATING FOR PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL GROWTH OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES.

Description

Skaters with disabilities require special attention on the ice, but they can attain the basics of ice skating skills in a fun an inclusive environment! We use step-by-step skill instruction and an assessment program to verify which skills are appropriate for a given "Star" to attain. On-ice volunteers assist them in gaining these skills and then measure what degree to which they have attained the skill. Our Stars have an opportunity to gain overall better health including increased muscle strength, improved fine and gross motor skills, and experience success, increased confidence, and self esteem. Our annual ice show is the culmination of weeks of skilled instruction and practice and our Stars are assigned a role to play in the end of season show. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than the cheers of the audience and heightened electricity of a live production!
