Roller skating is fun and a great way to exercise. Join us on our 5 week program and learn to skate safely and confidently!
To buy a gift voucher for our next learn to skate / fresh meat course, send us an email.
Our first Learn to Skate program for the year will be running from 8 March 2024!
Course cost: $75 (with own gear) - $100 (with gear hire).
What does this cost include? You get:
5 guaranteed Friday training sessions with a dedicated coach. These sessions run from 7pm to 9pm at Niagara Park Stadium, and each week you will build on the skills that you learnt in the previous week.
From 4pm to 6pm on a Sunday (pending venue availability) you will have a dedicated space to practice all your newly learned skills each week.
If required, a helmet, padding, and roller skates to hire for the duration of the learn to skate program. Please note there is a $5 per week fee for hiring gear.
Every participant is required to have Skate Victoria Insurance (Senior Development - $90.00). This is purchased directly from Skate Victoria and lasts for the whole of 2024!
The program teaches you to skate, stop, fall safely, do crossovers and other basic skills that will prepare you for your skating journey.
If you need to borrow skates, padding and a helmet, please note numbers are limited so make sure you get in quick to secure your size. We supply hire gear so that you can see if roller skating is for you without having to invest in your own gear until you know you want to commit!
You'll need to supply your own mouth guard though (because no one wants a second hand one of those - ewww). Many roller derby skaters use the Sisu brand of mouldable mouth guards.
If you would like to continue skating with us and learn roller derby skills once you pass the course, you will need to supply your own gear.
