Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  Do we have to sign up for the whole summer?

A.  No, you can shift or skip days as long as you coordinate it with the coach.

A.  The child should be old enough by your estimate to work with a coach one on one for thirty minutes. 

 

Q.  My child like roller blades, can she use them?

A.  Yes, some skaters think they are easier.  Long term you can do more and skate competition using standard quad roller skates.

A.  Yes, we have two programs levels as established by the Roller Skating Association. 

 

Q.  Will there be other skaters on the floor while the lesson is going on?

A.  Yes and no.  The lessons are taught during private club practice time so competition skaters may be practicing at the same time.  But, no, there is not public skating while the lesson is going on. 

 

Q.  Do we need special safety equipment or clothing? 

A.  No.  If you are more comfortable you may wear safety equipment such as helmets, wrist, elbow and knee guards.  Clothing should be appropriate for the sport and not present a tripping hazard to the skater.
