The Saturday morning Skateaway Star Class Program has three levels, commencing at the very basic level and gradually moving through to more technical skills of both quad and inline skating. All levels are suitable for people of all ages and fitness on blades or traditional quad skates. Included in the star levels, are two additional specialised groups – one for the first time/beginner skaters, and one just for adults.
Skaters and parents can ask for feedback from their instructor at any time. However, on the final Saturday of each month, your Instructor will give feedback to the skater/parent. This will be conducted during class time. Skaters that are competent on their required star elements will receive a Star Patch and be moved into the next level.
MOVING ON FROM LEARN TO SKATE
Once skaters have completed the star program, they can then move into the Artistic Development (figure skating) Program Introductory Class which is held on Saturdays between 12 noon – 1pm. Another option is for skaters to join our Inline hockey club. Please ask your session manager for more information or see posters at the rink.
