Kids will learn to rollerblade, or improve their skills with Teacher Karen!
Beginners will first practice blading on the carpeted area at Skate City Arvada. Karen will go over basics such as the angle your blades should be at and technique for moving forward, stopping, and falling safely. Then, they'll transition to the rink and practice their new skills on the skating surface. Once everyone feels pretty confident, Karen will introduce going in circles around the rink together, and having some fun! Karen will incorporate skating games based on the child or group's skill level.
Equipment not provided. Kids can bring their own or rent at Skate City.
