Adult Beginner Group Lessons in Brighton
12pm – 1.30pm. Cost £15
Start at the very beginning with safety stuff, gentle stride and of course stopping (using your heel brake or toe stops).
Adult Improver Classes in Brighton
1.30pm – 3pm. Cost £15
Start at Improver level if you have taught yourself to skate (on either inlines or quads) and can get around on your wheels but your heel brake stopping isn’t working well and you don’t feel secure on slopes or in emergency situations. Or you’ve completed our Beginner class and want to take things to the next level. The focus point of Improver is to increase your confidence by learning (and mastering) to stop correctly.
Adult Intermediate Workshops in Brighton
3.30pm – 5pm. Cost £15
Intermediate level is for skaters wanting to learn new stops, backwards skating and confident turns. We will also look at improving your stride, speed and crossovers.
Adult Advanced Workshop in Brighton
5pm – 6pm. Cost £10
Polish your backwards skating and hone your transitions, jumps, spins, back crossovers, three turns and other requested moves. Let us know what you’d like to cover.
Kids Club Brighton
12.30pm – 1.45pm.
These group classes are suitable for kids aged 6-11 who can already skate a bit on their own. Using games and rolling activities we will guide your child through the basic skills of inline skating, ensuring they have lots of fun and plenty of movement. We will focus on skate safety, stopping methods, and giving them a variety of exercises to support their learning.
If your child is a complete beginner there will be a half-hour preparatory class to teach the basics starting at 12pm and costing £15 for one child. If more children need this introduction the cost can be shared.
Your child will need to bring skates (inlines please) to the lesson and also protective wrist and knee guards and a helmet (cycle helmet is fine). Without safety kit they will not be allowed to join the class. Plastic skates are not recommended.
A maximum of 10 children in the group, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
If you are a LocoSkates customer and have purchased a pair of inline skates you are entitled to £10 discount on a beginner group lesson or one free Kids Club session. Please state ‘LocoSkates Lesson’ when booking.
