Ice skating for schools

Just like the previous years, you can come skating (free for schools in Rotterdam). A great way for you and your classmates to learn about the sport. Schools can already begin skating from the beginning of November on the Funbaan. From December, the 400-metre course is also opened and school skating can take place on both courses.

Free for schools in Rotterdam

Schools in other municipalities have to pay a small entrance fee.
The municipality of Rotterdam has played a big part in making Schaatsbaan Rotterdam possible. Because of this, it is possible for schools in Rotterdam to come skating for free. 

Unfortunately, this is not possible for surrounding municipalities. These schools will have to pay a small entrance fee to come skating. We tried to keep this fee as low as possible since we think it is more important to have many kids come skating. The prices for school skating will be announced during the summer of 2019.


Do you want to come skating with your MBO, HBO or WO? The prices for skating can be found here.


Making reservations is possible for the times listed underneath. These times apply only outside of school holidays for safety and capacity reasons. During each 'blok', a maximum of 250 students can come skating.

After-school daycares (BSO)

After school daycares that want to come skating need to pay 3,75 per person. A maximum of 10 children and 2 teachers accompanying the children is mandatory. 

Keep in mind: during Christmas and spring holidays this price changes after 12:00. If the rink is entered after 12, the regular entrance fee needs to be paid. Reservations can be made via

Skate rental

The students may use their own skates. If they don't have their own skates, it is possible to rent them at Schaatsbaan Rotterdam. Ice hockey skates cost 5 euros and speed skates (Noren) cost 7 euros. The people accompanying the children are responsible for the use and returning of the skates. 


Schaatsbaan Rotterdam organises 2 clinics in which schools can participate. The students have the possibility to get to know ice hockey and long-distance skating. These 2 clinics are taught by professionals. You don't need any experience to participate in these as you will learn the basic techniques, how to take on a correct posture during skating and how to be able to skate easily. You'll definitely enjoy skating even more after having had these clinics!

An ice hockey clinic costs € 5 per person. This can be booked from 18 people (max. 28 people). The long-track clinic costs € 6 per person and can be booked from 12 people. For both clinics is the skate hire not included.
