Junior lessons are a fantastic way for children to begin their roller skating journey.
In no time at all, junior skaters will be standing up in skates, balancing, skating forwards and backwards, stopping too.
Once they’re rolling, it’s time to learn more skating skills, crossovers to glide around rink, turns and jumps to smoothly transition from forward to backwards skating, and spins just for fun.
Every new skate skill learned is used to play a game with plenty of time to practice and have fun.

Play and Learn - Ages 4-7
For the younger skater, play and learn is the place to start rolling, learning to skate while playing games, weaving through cones, and having fun encouraged by our skate staff.
***For 4-7 year olds only***
Junior Lessons - Age 8+
Juniors learn the skills they need to get them skating forwards, backwards, and stopping too. These basic skate skills are combined in games that encourage beginners to improve their skills while having fun. With the basics mastered, they’re ready to learn crossovers, turns, and spins. Everything you need to roller disco.
***For 8+ children only***
Skate Skills - Age 8+
This is it, you’ve got the basics and are ready for the big time, spins, jumps, and dance moves. Ready for any roller disco, and our advanced lessons, figure skating or derby.
***For 8+children only, who have already progressed through our Beginner class, or who can already skate forwards/backwards/stop/turn confidently. Skills classes are not sold online, please email [email protected] to find out how to join this class.***

Everyone who comes for lessons receives a Rollerstop T-Shirt of their choice. There are four designs to collect, Boom Box, Roller Skate, Geometric and Keep Rollin! All come in five different colours, blue, green, orange, pink, and red. They are available in four sizes 5-6, 7-8, 9-11, and adult small.
When you book a block of lessons, we will contact you to ask which T-Shirt you would like. At the first lesson, you will receive the T-Shirt during the break, and at the end of the lesson everyone can join in to take a group photo with their new T-shirt on.
Does the block have to include roller disco entry?
Yes, practice is a very important part of learning any skill. It is essential for children to have time to roller skate outside of lessons so they can progress.
Is there free entry to the 12 - 2 PM Roller Disco?
We have changed the format of the Junior Lessons which includes a 40 minute roller disco for only the Junior Lesson ticket holders. Junior lessons no longer have free entry to the 12-2 PM roller disco. The Junior Lessons roller disco starts are 11AM directly after lessons have finished and lasts for 40 min. After the Junior Lesson roller disco all skaters will be asked to leave the rink, return hire skates, and get ready to leave.
Can adults join the Junior Lessons roller disco?
Yes! It’s free too. We know parents love to skate with their junior after the lesson. If you would like to join the roller disco, you will be invited to collect hire skates after the five minute break during the lesson.
My child missed a week of their course, can they attend on another day?
Unfortunately not, missed lessons can’t be exchanged or refunded.
My child has their own skates, do they get a discount?
No, lessons are a set price.
My child has a space in a 4 week course, can they stay on the same course every time it runs?
Can I put my child's name on a waiting list for the next block?
No, we no longer have any waiting lists for children’s skating lessons. All lessons are sold via the website only (with the exception of children who are repeating or progressing). When tickets for the next block are made available we’ll update our social media and include it in our mail out too.
In most cases no, when a child is ready to progress to the next course they should move up. However if the coach determines that a child is not yet ready to progress, they may be given the option to resit the course one more time. In this case, there will be a period of one week where payment must be made to confirm the resit or the space will be made available to the public via the website.
Why don't you sell lesson blocks further in advance?
We need to calculate how many spaces need to be held for those progressing from one class to the next.
I'm already a great skater - do I have to go through the lesson blocks to be able to join one of the specialised lessons?
Not necessarily, email in to meet with one of our coaches who can assess your ability & advise if you need to brush up any general skills first or roll on through to your chosen specialism.
How long do the lessons last for?
Can I buy a block of lessons at the rink?
No, lessons can only be purchased online so we can keep track of attendees & make sure not to over-sell spaces
