 KIDS & FAMILY CLASS

6pm: LEVEL 0

 KIDS & FAMILY CLASS

6pm: Level 1-2

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. 

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 DSS 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.


ONLINE TICKETS are the best! 

Prebooking helps to:

  • Ensures both coaches and skaters can be in class on time.
  • Eliminates ques, holdups, payment processing and paperwork
  • Ensure we have the right amount of coaches.

Please purchase tickets at your earliest convenience (we love bookings by 3pm skate day) to assist us with planning. Skate Gym is a structured coaching skills and movement session, not a casual skating session. Please be on time for your class.

Class Etiquette

Please use main carpark. Coaching staff only at entrance.

You may enter the stadium 5 mins prior to your class only. Skaters may start getting gear on any time outside (HOT TIP: Put kids safety gear in at home so then it's just skates to go).

Please DO NOT crowd the foyer or block the entrance/exit. Move well out of the way of main entrance to the building the court and the hallway. If there is no room, please remain outside.

If we are running late, it's because of a good reason. Your patience is appreciated.

6pm class is not permitted to keep skating during the 7pm class. 7 pm class are not permitted to skate early. Non skaters must not play on the skate floor.

Unless granted by a coach or in an emergency, parents are not to walk out on the coaching floor.

Check your toe stops, are they worn down and scratching the sports court?

SAFETY NOTIFICATIONS

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

HOW DO SCHOOL VOUCHERS WORK?

You will need to email us your school voucher along with one or more classes you would like to book. 

You must still book into every class. Do this via email to skates@shinertown.com.au

You must still notify us if you cannot attend or you loose your booking fee

We do not track and trace your attendance, only an email will result in your voucher credit being readjusted

CAN I HIRE SKATES?

At this time, you cannot hire any equipment. Darwin Skate School does not have a rental fleet and Marrara Stadium 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.  Coaches will show you how to best assist.
 
I'VE PAID, BUT I CANT COME NOW, CAN I USE MY TICKET NEXT WEEK OR GET A REFUND?
We respect that life happens occasionally and last minute drop in/out is very convenient for those with tight schedules or unpredictable kids. We are flexible however please respect that we must keep as many spots filled each session as possible.
If something unfortunate happens, please email us ASAP up to a few days after, at skates@shinertown.com.au. We want to help, so please inform us or you will loose your class as we cannot backdate and transfer old absences.
We do aim to keep our limited class spaces full so we can pay for our very expensive stadium fees and our amazing coaches. We have some sneaky room for shuffling, but please use that consideration respectfully.
