Inline Skating (10am-1pm).
Yes. We teach from scratch and begin sessions on the grass explaining the basics such as falling, getting up and proper equipment assembly. This course is for kids that want to improve their skating; be they absolute beginners or 'movers and improvers'
Helmets - if your child has their own bike or skate helmet they may use it
Wrist, knee and elbow protection
all free of charge on the condition these are requested at registration.
Please indicate which equipment and, if required, UK shoe sizes for inline skate rental.
We require two weeks notice before course start date for a refund.
There is a £5 charge per booking for refunds.
Payments are not returned for cancellations made less than two weeks before session start date (after 10am, 7 days before).
Changes to dates can me made up to one week before course commencement (before 10am, 7 days before session start date) at no charge provided there is space on the course.
We do not permit changes to bookings if we move to our covered location.
A litle bit of bad weather is not a problem however in extreme cases we move to a covered location north of Kensington Gardens, next to ROYAL OAK tube station. The entire day of camp will take place there and you will be informed via the number supplied at registration by 8am on the morning of your session. Please add Nanny or responsible adults phone numbers to your registration form. We do not accept changes to camp attendance due to bad weather.
We have a maximum of eight students to an instructor and the average tends to be 4 to 6 kids.
This helps us keep groups small, split according to ability and maintain high levels of individual attention. Mixed age and ability groups are not a problem.
We spend approximately half our time working on learning new skills and half on games such as races, relays, slalom and tours. We can teach total beginners as well as more advanced skaters
We love skating and we aim to pass on our passion to your children. There are huge benefits of learning skate technique that go beyond skating itself. Learning to fall, get up, try again and work towards something is a useful life skill. See more on our FAQs section. Our classes have three main ingredients.
We provide all the protective gear for two reasons. Firstly, to protect kids from falls and scrapes. Secondly, experience has taught us protection
allows skaters to push further and actually learn faster. We are qualified with the UK Inline Skating Association (UKISA) and follow the UKISA Guide To Responsible Skating. Kids may take off protective equipment when resting. When skating protective gear is compulsory.
This course is the official preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the David Beckham School of International Rollersoccer
We are of course just kidding :)
Our focus is on having fun and keeping the challenge exciting.
Once we have a safe and fun environment these are the conditions best suited to learning recreational roller sports. Rather than saying they learnt a lot we prefer kids saying they love skating and want to come back for more.
Yes of course! With younger kids we recommend joining us for the first 15 to 20 minutes. Parents staying more than 30 minutes get squirted with industrial sized water guns.
As well as being OFSTED registered, qualified with the UK Inline Skating Association and having a nominated first aider present our instructors have enhanced DBS checks. Organisations with relevant authorisation can check this via the online update facility for Disclosure & Barring Service.
When this happens children can take off equipment and join our games with normal footwear.
As with all protective gear during class children are required to wear helmets at all times while they practise roller sports with us. We provide
protective wrist, knee and elbow pads as well as a skate helmet. If your child would prefer to wear a cycle helmet they can bring their own. Cycle helmets offer a higher ventilation rate and for this
reason tend to be more comfortable. However, they offer less protection at the back of the head.
