  • Confidence and stability in every moment on skates.
  • Conscious edge control (and the end to pronation for inliners).

  • Two Stopping methods.
  • Balance, gliding and stride awareness.

$45.00 USD – approx. 65 Aus$

Saturday 25 February 2023

Perth Stops & Slides (Level 1) Sat 25 Feb 2023 @ 0900-1100

The most important of ALL skills on inline & roller skates is how to stop and every skater should have several, high functioning stopping methods in their repertoire (to avoid accidents and injuries). This workshop looks at the easier stops, while “Stops, Slides & Slopes Level 2” looks at the more challenging methods.

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, crossovers and street skating.

What you’ll learn;

  • Plough Stop (2 versions)
  • T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
  • Turn Stops (various options – prerequisite for Powerstop)
  • Combinations of these stops so they work from your highest speeds and on slopes.

This 2 hr workshop is NOT suitable for beginners, who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop or Toe Stop Drag before any other methods.

$45.00 USD – approx. 65 Aus$

Perth Speed and Fitness Sat 25 Feb 2023 @ 1500-1700

Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING! However, if your skating stride lacks fundamental technique, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may even create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ particularly if you skate distances (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge).
What you’ll learn;
  • An efficient push.
  • A correct, comfortable glide, in terms of edges, balance and cadence.
  • A regroup that maximises your stride (and not destroy all the hard work you just put in).
  • The Stride Training Sequence. The drill to keep you on track for months/years to come.

“This class transformed my skating. I never knew how many things I was doing wrong. Feels great to be on the right path now and I understand what a workout skating should be if you’re doing it right.”
– Analise (46) Belgium

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). This class is an essential prerequisite for the Double Push workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is appropriate for every level of skater except beginners.

$45.00 USD

(approx. 65 Aus$)

Perth Backwards & Transitions Sat 25 Feb 2023 @ 1800-2000

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.

What you’ll learn;

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

PLEASE NOTE: This lesson is NOT appropriate for beginner level skaters.

(approx. 65 Aus$)

Sunday 26 February 2023

Perth Stops & Slides (Level 2) Sun 26 Feb 2023 @ 0900-1100

For those skaters already confident with their T-Stops, Plough and Turn Stops, this class will look at the more challenging sliding stops and how best to combine different stopping methods for maximum efficiency and safety on the flat and on slopes.

What you’ll learn;

  • Powerslide (from a forwards entry using your favourite transition and favourite sliding leg)
  • Soul Slide (the ‘forwards powerslide, used by the downhillers for a reason).
  • Powerstop (or Turn stop variations)
  • Magic Slide (for those with a successful pre-requisite Soul Slide)
  • How to control your speed (for future use on slopes) by combining different stopping skills and how to come to a complete stop in an emergency.

$45.00 USD

(approx. 65 Aus$)

Perth Jumps & Crossovers Sun 26 Feb 2023 @ 1500-1700

Jumps are a challenge because ‘the fear’ is real and your body knows one mistake could mean a painful backwards fall. This class have you doing safe jumps and landings. Every. Single. Time.

What you’ll learn;

  • Safe take-off and landing technique
  • Forward to Forwards Jumps: Normal, High + Long jumps.
  • Forward to Backwards Jumps; Two-footed + jumped mohawk.
  • Backwards to Forwards Jumps; Two-footed.
  • Forward Crossovers drills for perfect corners.

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 lesson is not appropriate for beginner level skaters.

$45.00 USD

(approx. 65 Aus$)

Perth Downhill Slopes Sun 26 Feb 2023 @ 1800-2000

This workshop will take place on a slope and you must have attended either Stops & Slides Level1 or both Levels 1 & 2.
We will use the stopping methods you learned there and develop them further so you can;
  • Control your speed and not accelerate on downhills.
  • Actually stop on a slope.
  • Combine several stopping methods fluidly to achieve the results you want.
  • Be able to handle ANY slope (wide or narrow, shallow or steep).

$45.00 USD

(approx. 65 Aus$)
