School Sessions

Our goal is to have inline skating available to all school pupils in the area, even better would be to have an active inter-schools rollersports league. So far most sessions have been in schools around Falkirk as planned although our Skates4Schools sessions have been incredibly popular and we've even delivered six south of Edinburgh.

We're promoting our sport to the next generation of skaters and we can't do this it alone. The process involves bringing us into your school to deliver the sessions initially then we train your staff to deliver using an internationally proven method of skate instruction techniques. This ensures that each school is self sufficient to deliver safe inline skating sessions. Some of our members have over 50 years personal skating experience and can easily adapt the sessions to different levels as required. Once proficient the school staff can then train staff from other schools to run sessions too. During the early stages any schools involved are welcome to borrow skates from our skate library until they have their own kit.

Our Skate Library

Q. How much does it cost? A. Nothing, all our skates for schools sessions around the Falkirk area will always be free. We may ask for a charge to cover fuel if any schools outwith the area would like us to visit. This is all done voluntarily by of our members, none of our members or committee are remunerated in any way other than expenses to cover personal costs so no-one is out of pocket.
