Improver Skate Lesson Sat 21 Oct 2023 @ 1100 – 1300
Location: The Boathouse, Serpentine Road, Hyde Park, Central London
You’ve taught yourself to skate (on inline or roller skates) but you can’t stop and you don’t feel secure on slopes or in emergency situations.
You’ve attended our Beginner class and are ready for more.
Feeling stuck not knowing exactly what to practice?
This class will structure your practice time so you have a list of exercises to do each time you skate.
The Improver ability range is quite large as it includes everyone who isn’t a complete beginner but hasn’t yet reached intermediate level yet.
What Will You Learn?
- Consolidate the basics
You can already move about on wheels but we’ll revise the basic stride and make sure your Heel Brake Stop (inliners) or Toe Stop Drag (quads) works properly.
- Improve your skating stride technique so you gain fitness from your skates.
- Stopping techniques (that actually work!)
- One legged gliding techniques to improve your agility and balance.
- Acceleration and faster skating.
- Parallel turn in both directions.
The minimum age for these classes is 14yrs. If you require skate lessons for children below this age, please enquire about private lessons.
YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN SKATES, WRIST GUARDS AND KNEE PADS AS THESE ARE NOT SUPPLIED BY SKATEFRESH
