Changes and cancellations


Please email us. We require two weeks notice before course start date for chanes or 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).
We do not permit changes to bookings if we move to our covered location.


What if it rains (please read carefully)

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 this will be announced here at 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.



Class size 

We usually have a maximum of eight students to an instructor, 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.

Teaching style 

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





Class Focus 

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.


Can I leave my kids with you? 


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.




What if my child gets tired or the equipment hurts?


When this happens children can take off equipment and join our games with normal footwear. 


Does my child have to wear a helmet


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. 



We include 30 minute mini-workshops on how to maintain equipment during the course of the week. This includes; wheel rotation, when to repair/replace gear, different size skates/boards for different disciplines.


Buying advice for parents

If you would you like your child to have their own equipment we have experts from both inline skating and skateboarding on hand to offer advice on what equipment to buy. We are not sponsored and can therefore offer impartial advice.
