Skaters competed in different categories in figure skating, compulsory ice dance, free ice dance and exhibition skates, obtaining a wonderful set of results individually and as a club.

All the skaters train at the Lammas Ice Rink on club nights which are held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and offer a structured programme of improvement for skaters who have achieved their NISA Gold Level and above.

This is achieved by completing the Skate UK levels 1-10 with the NISA licensed coaches at the Lammas Ice Rink.

Lammas also held their internal club Pop Competition where skaters perform a two minute routine to their own choice of music, with props.
