Eastbourne Skating Instructors Skate Lessons, Roller Discos, Hire & Roller Birthday Parties News and Events

Skate Event related articles, from the incidental group skate, to full bore hardcore skating events on a massive scale. Sk8school is instrumental in all kinds of events from the tiny “Breakfast Skate” up to National treasures like Eastbourne Extreme.
Every Tuesday and Wednesday there’s a couple of free street skates with varied weekly routes. The Skate in Eastbourne happens on a Wednesday and meets up at the Skaters Cage on Royal Parade, then heads off to various locations depending on the mood of the crowd! The skate meets up from 7pm and skaters warm up with some Roller Basketball till kick off at 7:30pm. The skate is suitable for intermediate skaters.
The Brighton skate takes place on a Tuesday from 7:30pm meeting at the West Pier. Routes do vary and the pace can be quick and the hills can be steep! There is a lot of actual street, kerbs etc. So don’t just pop some skates on for the first time and expect to join in! Distance can be 6 miles+ on some routes.
In all cases use your head! If the weather looks like it’s going to be very windy or wet, or the floors are wet, then the skate may not go ahead. Often they are not “organised” events so there is no central place to check for GO/No Go.
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).
