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. 

Adults are only permitted in this class when accompanying a child. 

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.

SAFETY NOTIFICATIONS

COVID - 19

Are you a Vulnerable person according to the Northern Territory CHO direction 52/22?

Please message us if a participant or spectator is considered vulnerable as we aim to abide by current NT mandates and restrictions

A person is considered to be vulnerable to infection with COVID-19 if:

(a) the person is under 5 years of age; or
(b) the person has a certificate issued by the Commonwealth that
certifies that the person has a permanent or temporary
contraindication to all approved COVID-19 vaccines; or

WHEELS 

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, you are at a significantly increased risk of slipping. 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

Shiner Town advocates for use of safety gear by all participants. We reserve the right to instruct anyone to wear extra safety gear who we deem at increased risk of injury. 

FAQ's

CAN I HIRE SKATES?

At this time, you cannot hire any equipment. Darwin Skate School does not have a rental fleet and does not have roller rink facilities.
CAN I WEAR INLINE SKATES?
Yes you can. the majority of skaters own Quad skates but most skills transfer across to inline too.
 
CAN ANY LEVEL JOIN IN?
Yes, however if you are a level 0 skater, please let us know. Parents may have to assist with small children until they can independently maintain balance.  
 
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 email us at skates@shinertown.com.au ASAP. We want to help, but we need your help to track this or you will loose your class.
We do aim to keep our limited class spaces full and pay for our very expensive stadium fees. We have some sneaky room for shuffling, but please use that consideration respectfully.
