WHEELS WARNING:

Your wheels matter. At Marrara Stadium, the floor is a sports court that is very smooth and can be slippery. If your skates have plastic, old/dry/brittle, or worn out wheels, they may not get much traction and you are at a significantly increased risk of suddenly slipping and injuring yourself. This combination of  wheels and smooth surface can be like ice. Darwin Skate School coaches reserve the right to terminate your lesson if you are on plastic wheels and appear unsafe. 
Please also ensure your skate parts are intact and not falling apart. 

Helmets are compulsory for all under 16's

This is a class for our newest or youngest skaters. This is where to start if you have never skated, or need extra help to get safe. Children can bring grownups into class with them so this is a great opportunity for families to roll together. 

If you have questions, please check in with us. If you have a tiny skater, check out our new PlaySkate class on Wednesday mornings at 9am.

A class for skaters that are climbing the skill ladder.  This class will challenge all participants to pick up essential skills beyond the beginner level. Its a great development opportunity with a mix of skills from a number of different skate sports added in for a challenge.

Check out our SELF ASSESMENT skills charts to help you choose your class. As a guide, kids under 8 are generally best suited to the kids 5pm class however some older kids may still need Level 0 to begin with. Adults may only enter this classes if attending with a child. 

TWEENS & ADULTS BEGINNER   TWEENS & ADULTS CLASS
7pm: Level 0 7pm: Level 1-2

This is the perfect place to start for those with around zero skate skills.

This class is based on the 5 S's and aims to teach you the basics of safety standing, stability, skating, and an intro to stopping.

For new skaters who are still flailing, falling, shaky and wobbly or carry anxiety and fear, we will get you up, rolling, controlling your direction and keeping yourself safe.

 

 

Feel like the grown ups class is more your style?

Once you are independent and safe and have started working on your speed control and stopping skills, this class will take you the rest of the way. You don't have to be super at your basic skills, in fact you might still consider yourself a beginner, but if you're certainly able to cruise around safely and stable enough to try new things, then this is where you need to be.

Please watch for come and try days.

CAN ANY LEVEL JOIN IN?
Yes, however if you are a level 0 skater, please ensure you book a 5pm for kids up to the age of around 10-12 and 6pm for around 10+. consider that the 5pm class usually has younger kids, and 6pm will have some adults. If the 5pm class is not available, the 6pm class will cover all levels

I'VE PAID, BUT I CANT COME NOW, CAN I USE MY TICKET NEXT WEEK OR GET A REFUND?
Not really. We respect that life happens occasionally and drop in is very convenient for those with tight schedules or unpredictable kids. If something unfortunate happens, please discuss it with us, we want to help. We are however aiming to keep our limited class spaces full and pay for the stadium. We have some sneaky room for shuffling, but please use that consideration respectfully.
