WHAT HAPPENS AT PRACTICE?
The first month of practice is FREE for new skaters! After that practices are $7 each. Practice takes place on a flat concrete surface, please come prepared. You may want to show up a few minutes early in some comfortable work out apparel. Also it’s a good idea to bring a water bottle.
We will have some loaner gear available, (quad skates, elbow pads, knee pads, wrist guards, and helmets) but if you have any of that gear bring it with you. There is no need for you to go out and buy gear prior to practice, but if you’d like to, you could go to Aspect Skate Shop here in Bend, they carry most of the gear you will need. Good deals can also be found online.
Typical practices will cover basic skating skills such as stops, starts, rolls, and falls. Teamwork, proper form, endurance drills, footwork and other advanced skills are also covered. Off skate workouts and a few fun games are thrown in for good measure. Practices are welcome to all skill levels and happen in a supportive team environment.
