Are you looking for something a bit different than the gym? Something you can really get involved with? Well you’ve come to the right place!



We will train you to skate if you have never skated before (or are rusty). You will be taught the foundation skills you need to be a confident and safe skater. We will teach you stability and control and move you into engagement drills with your fellow skaters.

You will also be given training on Rules & Safety with extra off skates training if you want to participate.


If you can already skate, or pick it up very quickly, we will adapt the drills to help you advance your skills and will work on improving your strength and agility.

You will also start to work in packs (next to other skaters) and look at game play.


Bring yourself (and a friend if you like!) and a water bottle.

Wear something comfortable that will allow movement whilst wearing elbow and knee pads. Most of us wear leggings and a vest or t-shirt. (Also a sport bra is always a good shout too!) Oh and don’t forget your socks… nothing worse than wearing skates and your feet getting sweaty!


The training course is £30 for 6 weeks.

When your course is complete you will get the chance to join us as a full member and advance your skills. Members dues are £20 a month. We do offer a pay as you go option too which is £10 a session. But we recommend being on dues to get the most out of it. The more you come, the quicker you get to play!! Whooohooo!

If you can’t make all six weeks it’s ok, the course is an entry way into the league. Obviously the more you come to the more you will get out of it. 😊


It’s at Parklands Leisure Centre in Oadby, Leicestershire.

The course will be from 12:30 – 14:30 every Sunday, but we ask that you get there a bit early to get kitted up. Also, once the course has finished training will from 13:30-3:30 every Sunday instead.

Please note: There is a £1 parking charge at the venue, please make sure you pay that before coming in 🙂
