Skating is a balancing activity so falls do occur and in these days of health and safety, we have to make it compulsory that juniors wear safety pads and a helmet at all lessons. If booked in advance, we can hire out safety pads and helmets but prefer if you bring your own helmet (a cycle helmet will do).
If you forget to bring safety gear, please do not ask to skate.
Outdoor Private Lessons 1-2-1
Are normally held at Victoria Park Tennis Courts, but can be at Bellahouston Park, Brodie Park, Paisley and elsewhere by arrangement. Children only enjoy an outdoor lesson in good weather conditions. The lesson lasts up to one hour, shorter if the child wishes to stop. 1-2-1 Lessons cost £30, skates and pads can be supplied at no extra charge. You must bring a helmet, (cycle) you will not be allowed to skate without a helmet. Minimum age 6yrs. (Note: Currently we can offer some small family group classes, but participants need to take a private lesson first if they cannot stand on skates and move forward unaided.)
Indoor Private Lessons - Currently suspended due to lack of venues
Lessons are held in Glasgow, elsewhere by arrangement. Children enjoy indoor lessons skating on the smooth skater friendly floor and make good progress. The lesson lasts up to an hour, shorter if the child wishes to stop. 1-2-1 lesson costs £30 and skates and pads can be supplied at no extra charge.
