The course focuses on developing good balance on rollerskis, and will cover the basic 'gears' of skating techniques. You will develop skills such as turning, negotiating hills and making the transition onto snow.
The technique on roller skis is very much the same as with cross-country skis on snow and we try to relate everything you do on roller skis to cross-country skiing on snow. Many of our drills are designed to develop good balance and body positions. The first 4 weeks focuses on technique, while the 5th week is an introduction to skating rollerski training. We hope you will 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 £140 including equipment hire and £106 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, classic.
