Brief Description & Conduct of Course

Roller blading is a fun and enjoyable way to keep children active and introduce them to the great outdoors!

Our Junior Roller Blading Class will introduce preschoolers to basic roller blading in a safe, supervised environment. The 9-week long session will equip them with a variety of different skills such as, balance, safety, moving forward, directional change, and stopping – through a series of fun activities and games.

This sport will focus on developing a child’s confidence, social skills and ability to take instructions as well as strengthen their gross motor skills and coordination.

FAQ

  • What is the Coach to Student ratio?

We try our best to keep our ratios low at 5 students to 1 coach max, so your kids will have full attention and guidance.

 

  • What happens if it rains?

We can still continue sessions in an indoor location within the school premises

 

  • What if I don’t own a pair of rollerblades or protective gear?

Don’t worry, you can purchase a set through us. See option B, our all-inclusive package includes a full skate set (rollerblades, protective gear, helmet, bag) as well as lessons.

 

  • Can I use my own rollerblades and protective gear?

Yes, of course you may use your own.

 

  • Can we rent rollerblades from you?

Sorry, unfortunately we will not be doing rentals for kids as we want them to each own a pair and take ownership for their own equipment.
