Skill Levels 


Younger roller skaters and their families take to the rink each Saturday morning.

Skaters progress at their own rate through the following sets of skills:

  • VIP Skater: New skaters/non-skaters learn safety techniques, correct posture, balancing on skates and how to roll.
  • Yellow Group: While reinforcing correct body posture, skaters learn basic skills such as starting/stopping, scissors, balancing on one foot, edging and shoot the duck.
  • Green Group: While continuing and strengthening basic skills previously learned, the skater will be introduced to backward skating.

Have fun learning the basics from our friendly Skating School coaches.
