Ice Syncro secretary Catherine Fleay said the event was an excellent opportunity for people who had never tried ice sports to immerse themselves in the action in a fun, learning environment.

‘There are not too many opportunities that allow you to hit a hockey puck around an ice rink, skate fast with safety mats lining the rink barrier or have a go at skating in a travelling circle with 15 other people.

‘It has never been offered before at Xtreme Ice Arena and to the best of our knowledge is a first for rinks in Perth to have all four disciplines together at the same time,’ Ms Fleay said.

The free event will run from 4.45pm to 7.45pm at the Mirrabooka ice rink and Ms Fleay urged people to try one of the many sports on offer.
