DUE TO INJURY, COACH IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PLAY SKATE. PLEASE BOOK YOUR CHILD FOR 5PM SKATE GYM AND ADD YOUR REQUEST FOR LOAN SKATE SIZE TO THE CART.
Play Skate is our class for tiny skaters. If you have an under 5 who needs a few goes at skating before joining the bigger class, or getting their own skates, this is for you.
All you need is a bike helmet, we have the rest. Bring your own skates if you have them, or book a pair of size 10, 11 or 12 skates with us. To book our skates, your child needs to have at least size 8 feet, and you need to put a note in the cart as we have limited skates available.
We will have a range of activities that encourage children to play and move across the floor area. We have some rules that help keep them on their feet and challenged to do their best.
We often get asked what age children can start skating. The best answer we can give is it's up to the child. If you have a resilient kiddo that handles a fall or 2, soaks up learning new things and has an eye for watching and copying, then they are ready to try.
We definitely don't want to frighten timid children so sometimes it is best to wait a little longer, but parents know best.
Skates under size 10 are harder to come by, but we have some coming this year. Size 10+ are often in store at Shiner Town.
Parent participation is required and this class will also teach you how to help your tiny skater at home to skate without learning bad habits. Please wear closed in shoes...trust us!
