2019 Australian Team at Oberstdorf ISU Adult Competition
'Adult' skating these days includes not only those skaters who have grown with the sport from their early years, but also people who have taken up the sport as adults.
There are now two major ISU adult competitions – one in Oberstdorf each May and another in North America each fall. These are for adult skaters who have reached at least the age of twenty eight (28) and Synchronized skaters at least the age of twenty five (25). In Australia skaters can start competing in Adult divisions at eighteen (18).
The Aussie Skate program also incorporates a learn-to-skate stream for adults!
Adults take part in all disciplines including Synchronized skating, Singles, Pairs and Dance, and Theatre On Ice.
There are some adult specific competitions in Australia, notably OFSC Masters and ANZAS (bi-annual).
