Bel Jacobs, METRO NEWSPAPER
would never have started roller blading seriously if I did
attend the course. A definite must for all beginners.
CITISKATE TOOK ME FROM LEVEL 1 ("Stopping
include pedestrians, skin loss and gravity" ) TO A LEVEL 4
("basic cheekiness and arrogance "). THE INSTRUCTORS
WERE PATIENT AND APPROACHABLE TO THE POINT
THAT I HAVE SIGNED UP FOR A SECOND COURSE
FEATURING.SLALOM AND THE BARREL ROLL...
Miss J. Pearce
At Citiskate Hyde park lessons are divided
into three groups with an instructor in each group: (L1) absolute beginners, (L2) lower intermediate skaters, (L3) Upper intermediates/Advanced.
As an absolute beginner you will learn correct skate set-up and falling, how to get up (very useful!), balance and basic striding (skating), stopping which includes heel braking and also the A-frame turn. Citiskate instructors are particularly dedicated to building the confidence of skaters in this group.
Lower-intermediate skaters; as above plus intermediate level stopping, turning, transitions, better and more graceful gliding as well as some speed moves...and intermediate speed skating. Backward skating is comprehensively explained. Intermediate level tricks are also covered.
Upper-intermediate skaters usually have considerable skating experience and/or some ski or ice skating related knowledge. Note that this group covers intermediate and above skills and caters for participants wishing to excel their skating! The class features: advanced level tricks, slalom and, the real reason we all skate, exhibition stuff!
