The 3rd annual Cyber Ice Skating Sale has begun at IceSkatingProShop.com and runs now through Saturday, December 1st. The Cyber Skating Sale officially began on Small Business Saturday, November 24th. The sale features discounts on the entire line of products in the IceSkatingWorld Pro Shop, from figure skating accessories to training devices, gel pads and ice skates. By entering the coupon code ” K0AZ1554ED ” upon checkout, visitors save 25% on everything in the figure skating pro shop.
After two successful post-Thanksgiving runs, the Cyber Ice Skating Sale is back bigger and better this year. Last year discounts were only offered on select products. However, this year IceSkatingWorld has introduced new items and slashed prices across the board in every category. The 25% off Cyber Week sale coincides with the release of the new online store located at IceSkatingProShop.com.
“All the hype is about Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” explained Marta Nilsen, managing partner since 2000, who started the Cyber Skating Sale two years ago. “But we had never seen an online sale devoted specifically to figure skaters. With those major retail sales concluded, our clientele wants significant savings on items they use in their favorite sport every day.”
“Best of all there is no reason to pitch a tent and camp out three days before the sale begins,” explained Nilsen. “Figure skaters and fans of the sport can take advantage of the store-wide 25-percent discount from anywhere in the world.”
Instead of the Cyber Ice Skating Sale lasting only 24 hours, and subsequently many people missing out on the event, the site keeps it up and online for over a week. This is especially important since many of the site’s visitors are in various time zones.
The coupon code – K0AZ1554ED – expires on Saturday, December 1, 2012. There is no minimum purchase required.
Tarpon Springs, FL / November 28, 2011 — The 2nd annual Cyber Ice Skating Sale began this week at IceSkatingWorld.com and runs for seven days, ending on Saturday, December 3rd. The Cyber Skating Sale features discounts on the entire line of products in the IceSkatingWorld Pro Shop, from figure skating accessories to dresses and ice skates.
“Everyone talks about Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” explained Marta Nilsen, managing partner since 2000. “But we had never seen an online sale devoted specifically to figure skaters. Our clientele isn’t looking for a deal on the latest flat-screen television. They want savings on items they use in their skating every day.”
IceSkatingWorld LLC has been serving the ice skating community since 2000 by providing resources for figure skaters, parents, coaches and skating fans. In 2004 an online pro shop was added, offering merchandise from the leading manufacturers within the figure skating industry. Items from the online Pro Shop include protective gel pads, off-ice training tools, dresses, skates, the 2012 skating calendar and more. The products ship worldwide.

There is a common misconception that I often hear from the casual public skater. If I had a dollar for every person that has told me about how they have weak ankles, I would absolutely be a millionaire at this point. People are almost always shocked when I tell them it really has more to do with their ice skates than their ankles. I know it makes such a difference in skating that I often broach the subject with the parents of the kids I teach as soon as I feel like I can without them balking at the concept.
Most skating parents complain about how often they have to purchase new skates for their kids. If you were to travel to rinks around the country, you would find at least one parent who either just bought new skates for their kid or were already counting their dollars to put towards that next pair. Just about every week that I’m at the rink, I hear about someone who got new skates followed by the inevitable whining about how painful it is to break in those expensive things!
As someone who started skating in my late teenage years, I’ll confess that I don’t even know how often most people have to replace their skates! Sure I know the classic signs of skates that are breaking down, having coached for a few years and skated even longer! You look for too much creasing, a lack of support, you know the drill.
Instead of having to replace my skates too often, I find myself having the opposite problem. I have been skating in the same pair of skates for over 4 years. They still have plenty of support and if I can make them look better and smell a lot less stinky, I could probably even get some of my money back. During these years, I have diligently tried to wear them out, wanting something lighter and a little less stiff. Try as I might, I just can’t seem to do it! I have heard lots of suggestions ranging from doing more jumps to simply bending my knees more. I’m sure I will wear out these skates soon, even if I have to run them over with my car…
When I am in the market again for some new skates, I will consider things like stiffness, fit and a whole plethora of other things. Considering that skates are a big investment, it is certainly something that deserves some careful consideration! How often do you find yourself having to replace your skates? What kinds of things do you think about in regards to getting new skates?
