The course takes you through the essential elements of the three classic 'gears' - diagonal stride, kick double pole and double poling. It will get you into good habits on classic rollerskis. You will also learn how to stop and slow down, and rollerski safely in public.
You will work on weight transfer and developing good glide and balance, doing a variety of games and drills. The first 4 weeks focuses on technique, while the 5th week is more geared to training, with less technique. We hope you go on to join our regular training group.
Each session will last for 90 minutes, plus allow up to 30 minutes for getting equipment on and off. The course costs £128 including equipment hire and £98 excluding equipment. Please arrive from 18.15 on Tuesdays and 11.15 on Saturdays.
We assume zero previous knowledge or ski experience, but you should have reasonable fitness and balance. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Before you come -
Please bring gloves with you, and a filled in Safety Questionnaire when you come to your first session (if you don't have a printer don't worry, we have spares). If you happen to miss a week of the course, you can come to any other session we do. We will try to help you cover what you have missed. Or you can try the other technique, skating.
