A full day of roller skating for children 7 years and up.
Suitable for all abilities from a complete beginner to children already doing our skate grades.
We will teach our Core roller skate grades from grade 1 up to grade 8 which covers all disciplines of quad roller skating. Including a little artistic, speed, hockey, roller derby, jam and recreational skating.
We will play games and allow the children time to peer teach.
We can provide lunch too.
If your little one is used to using inlines (don't worry as they usually transition to quads very easily.)
If they insist on using their own inlines that is fine too.
We only hire out quad skates at our skate hire.
We have full safety gear for them to use.
Once your little one has mastered Grades 1-4 and has okayed it with you they may be allowed to go with minimum safety gear.
A little about why we only use quads
Quad roller skates, the ones with two wheels at the front and two at the back.
1) Quads are a lot more stable for the complete beginner as there is a wider surface area for balance.
2)They are actually more similar to ice skates than Inlines due to the ability to turn (called an edge). Inline have no ability to turn in the same way. If you think about an ice skater that you may have seen on the T.V. Quad skaters can do everything that they can.
3) Inlines with their narrow larger wheels are ideally suited for outdoor skating. Quads have smaller wider wheels for indoor use.
There are many more reasons please feel free to ask.
