A lovely, clean and professionally run ice rink, Skyrink, is the largest ice skating rink in South East Asia. Children above the age of four are permitted though they do consider younger kids too. They provide the ice skates once you’ve bought the coupon but do remember to take a jacket or sweater for the kids and yourself because it is cold! Probably the coldest place in Jakarta. Monday to Friday is cheaper than the weekends and public holidays Rp. 34,000 for the entire day. Otherwise it’s Rp. 38,000 for 2 hours and Rp 8,000 for each additional hour thereafter. The first ice cleaning session is at 11 a.m. and the rink will be closed to skaters for 20-30 minutes so it is advisable to get there for opening at 9 a.m. then leave at 11 a.m. when the ice is cleaned, that way you miss the crowds at weekends, although it never gets unbearable busy. Ice cleaning is approximately every 2 hours at weekends.

Junior Rugby - Season now over, will restart Nov 2012, dates to be announced
For the past 7 years we have run a junior rugby programme open to all children from the ages of 5 years upwards that have an interest in learning and playing rugby. The children that join the programme come from many schools around Jakarta.
Our programme is loosely based on the Smart rugby training programme and we are reliant on parent coaches. Our aim is to mirror the very successful Jakarta Youth Soccer League having mixed equal strength teams based on age groups playing in a non competitive environment that develops the ethos of team sports and community engagement.
We accommodate beginners and experienced players in all age groups and seek to provide a fun experience, whilst learning the skills of the game. We look to moving the children into game situtions over a period of 4 to 6 weeks.
The junior rugby programme has evolved from the adults section of the rugby club based at International Sports Club Indonesia (ISCI).
The juniors do tour and we have travelled to KL in 2007, 2008 & 2010 and to Bali in 2009. There are large tournaments run in KL and Singapore for age groups from U8 to U19 each year and we would like to regularly attend these tournaments as well as encourage others to travel to Jakarta with the idea of a home and away series developing.
Training costs Rp 600,000 for the season. Registration is open all season.
Please look at the this web site for details of the Jakarta Komodos and juniors: www.jakartarugby.com
