  • The Breakfast Skate
  • Gradings
  • 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 – April 4th

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.
