Welcome to the Eastbourne Skate School website – the Internet home of Eastbourne Skating.
SK8school has been teaching Eastbourne to skate since 1995 and we have the most qualified and experienced instructors around. We are the only Internationally recognised Skate School in Eastbourne and the only group qualified to teach skate lessons beyond beginner level in the area.
SK8school has a team of 10+ Instructors, Coaches and Consultants covering much of Sussex and South London, with Skate Lessons, Skate Events, Roller Discos and Roller Birthday Parties, Hen Parties and Skate Hire.
Our Group Eastbourne Skate Lessons are the most affordable in Eastbourne , with a voucher from participating skate shops. Our Family Eastbourne Roller Disco also runs all year. We are a Child and Family Friendly Co-operative of skating professionals ready to get your life rolling!
Our program of Gradings and after school clubs continues to expand and our outdoor program is also gathering pace into the summer.
Already the Wednesday Night Skates and Eastbourne Roller Basketball League are keenly anticipated weekly events, with plenty of free opportunity to just skate on the seafront or take part in the weekly group skate lessons at the cage.
Activities throughout the week for all the family to watch out for as the summer rolls in…
The Breakfast Skate
Skaters Treasure Hunt
Skate Streetwise course
Summer Skate Camps
And plenty more besides. Keep an eye on the website and our various facebook pages for each major item of interest.
Gradings will be taking place after the Hampden Park Roller Disco on April 4th. This event will be open to all ages and abilities and we will be examining up to grade 5. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL and there are discounts if you wish to go to the Disco beforehand as well as the Grading.
There will be a practise and warm up area to use whilst the exams are taking place. This is the ideal time to test your skills, get your certificates or improve on the gradings you’ve already taken.
Doors open at 5:30pm. We expect Grade 1 to complete by 6:15pm, rapidly going through the Grades sequentially after that.
Cost is £6 for the Grading and Disco or £4 just for the Grading.
Booking is Essential as we need to have the right number of instructors to conduct the Exams in the time allowed.
There will be some coaching and correction available during the exams and warm up zones, but this is not suitable for first time lessons – you need to have completed at least one lesson or SK8school after school skate club to attempt a grading.
The revamped Hampden Park Roller Disco is ready to receive you and your loved ones this weekend. Doors open at 4pm and we’ve quite a line up for you. If you’ve been away for a while, this Saturday is certainly the one to come back to!
Remember all children at schools lucky enough to have SK8school run an after school club can get in for only £3. That’s Ocklynge, Parkland, Gildredge House, Westrise, Haven, Willingdon, St. Richards and Netherfield. Just remember to bring your school club card (usually available from your school office).
