Oxford is part of the South West
Recreational Ice Dance League, with Bristol and Solihull.
The purpose of the Recreational Ice
Dance Leagues is to encourage ice dance couples of any age and standard
to take part in social ice dancing events with an element of
competition. As such, it aims to have the widest possible participation.
There are four regional leagues, which
hold local matches during the summer. Each region then sends a team
drawn from all its participating rinks to the National Final in the
autumn (usually November). To be eligible for selection for the Final,
skaters must have competed in at least one match in their region.
The Final has three sections of
Junior (Level 3 and under)
Intermediate (Level 7 and under)
Senior (open standard)
The regions each have their own rules
regarding standards for competitions. South West operates with only two
levels, Junior (Level 6 and under) and Senior (open standard).
Details of fixtures for other regions may be found here.
