Roller Skating Lessons - Fall 2016

All skill levels are welcome as class sizes are kept small so each person receives individualized instruction at their own level and pace. Beginners will learn good posture for forward and backwards skating and stopping, as well as good technique for failing and getting back up. Intermediate students will learn proper forward and backwards stroking, turns, cross overs and how to skate sideways. More advanced students can learn spins, squats, jumps or other tricks appropriate to their skill level. In addition to the weekly lesson, each student will receive a coupon which provides them one $2.00 skate each week so they can practice what they have learned prior to the next lesson.

If you already have a child in a session and you want to register for the next session, please check with the instructor half way through the session(like the 5th class) and they will know if your child will move up a class or have to repeat the class.  This way you will have enough time to get your child registered for the next session before it fills up.  We try our best to add classes as they fill up so keep checking back to the site to see if a class was added.  Additional classes all depend on our staffing levels.
