Stops and Slides – 5th June 2021 – FULLY BOOKED

Time: TBA
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
Duration: 3hrs

The most important of ALL skills on skates is how to stop and every skater should have several high functioning stopping methods in their repertoire. We begin with the easier stops and work through to the more complex ones.

The majority of skaters do not realise that by neglecting their stopping methods they not only increase their risks of falls and injuries but also reduce their learning of other skills such as speed skating.

This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners (who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop before any other methods).

In this class you will learn;

  • Plough Stop (2 versions)
  • T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
  • Turn Stops (Parallel Turn and Lunge Turn variations)
  • Powerslide (forwards and backwards entry)
  • Combining Stops into functional sequences e.g. T-Stop into Plough stop, Turn slalom into T-Stop into Powerslide.

Speed & Fitness Skating – 5th June 2021

Time: TBA
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
Duration: 2hrs

Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING!

However if your skating stride lacks the essentials, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge).

There are 3 parts to your skating stride; The Push, the Glide and the Regroup.

All 3 must be correct for the stride to flow, look good and produce sustained high speeds.

Are you pushing efficiently?
Is your glide correct in terms of edges, balance and cadence?
Is your regroup maximising your stride or is it destroying all the hard work you just put in?

Asha’s series of exercises is designed to progressively train all 3 parts of your stride and help you understand what’s needed for super smooth (and fast) skating.

This workshop does not cover the Double Push (although most skaters fail with the double push because their normal fitness stride lacks the correct foundations). So this class is a good pre-double push workout.

Please note: This group lesson is not appropriate for beginner level skaters.

SkateDance (Inlines or Quads) – 5th June 2021

Time: TBA
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
Duration: 2hrs

Asha’s dance class can be attended by various ability levels from advanced beginner upwards and is suitable for skaters on inline or quad skates.

Each dance move comes with 2-3 options of difficulty (easy, medium and hard) so everyone can work at their own pace and progress into the harder forms even after the class is over.

This class will work through a series of individually taught moves (e.g. Strut, New York Shuffle) which we will then sequence into a short choreography that we’ll film, so you have reference to it forever. This means you can continue to improve it and teach it to your friends for performing at the roller disco, events and meet-ups.

Each dance move can be taken out of the dance choreography and used in your normal skating to spice up your flows and give your skating that extra ‘wow’ factor. This class is super fun and you’ll notice your improvement with every new move.

Please remove heel brakes if on inline skates (they get in the way and you won’t be moving fast to need them to stop).

Dancing on quads is better without toe stoppers (but you can keep them in if that’s more comfortable for you).

Please note: This group lesson is not appropriate for beginner level skaters.

Backwards & Transitions – 6th June 2021

Time: TBA
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
Duration: 3hrs

This lesson is for those new to backward skating or those who have taught themselves but skipped the basics and are stuck on more complicated backwards moves.

This class will reveal your “one-sidedness” if you are already skating backwards and how to equalise this natural unevenness.

In this workshop you’ll learn;

  • Several propulsion techniques
  • How to steer correctly
  • How to safely glide backwards
  • How to stop backwards (2 methods)
  • Mohawk Transitions (forwards to backwards and backwards to forwards).

This compact course will give you content that will keep you busy training for months but with a clear path to backwards proficiency.

Please note: This group lesson is not appropriate for beginner level skaters.

Jumps & Crossovers – 6th June 2021

Time: TBA
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
Duration: 2hrs

Jumps are a challenge because ‘the fear’ is real and your body knows one mistake could mean a painful landing. This class will help you understand why jumps are potentially dangerous and then exactly how to make them safe, each and every time.

In this class you will learn;

  • Safe take-off and landing technique
  • Forward to Forwards Jumps: High + Long jumps.
  • Forward to Backwards Jumps; Two-footed + jumped mohawk.
  • Backwards to Forwards Jumps; Two-footed.
  • Backwards to Backwards Jumps; Two-footed.

If you do not skate backwards you do not have to learn the backward jumps versions but can perfect the forward options instead;

Forward Crossovers when done well should create smooth acceleration and admiring glances. But often they create anxiety and have a low(ish) upper speed limit. Make your weaker side feel a lot less strange.

Please note: This group lesson is not appropriate for beginner level skaters.
