About Gliding Stars of Central Florida

Gliding Stars of Central Florida is an adaptive ice-skating program that enables individuals with disabilities the opportunity for physical, social, and emotional growth by fostering a team-oriented, safe, and accepting environment, that allows one to break through barriers to accomplish their dreams.

Gliding Stars of Central Florida, Inc. became an independent not-for-profit organization on October 11, 2022. We are a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Previously, for over 20 years, we were a chapter of an organization, based in Buffalo, New York - Gliding Stars, Inc.  - that developed multiple chapters in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida. With our launch as an independent organization, the team at Gliding Stars of Central Florida continues to work towards promoting our cause to provide opportunities for persons with disabilities to grow physically, socially, and emotionally through our program of adaptive ice skating instruction. We are fortunate to have volunteers and staff from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do.

This is what enables us to achieve our goals year after year.

While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making a significant impact in our community. We measure success through happy faces and heartwarming feedback. See how you can become part of the difference.
