    Is катание на коньках "skating" on ice as a sport? Я занимаюсь катанием на коньках. Would this be correct?

    If you mean sport, Olympic games and so forth, you should say "я занимаюсь конькобежным спортом". If you are not a professional, I would simply say "я люблю кататься на коньках", "я катаюсь на коньках".

    More colloquial variant is я занимаюсь коньками - if it is clear from the context, of coruse, what skating is meant.
