    Inline Skating

    Students hung out on wheels. They improved balance, coordination, and flexibility. They exercised socially and improved/maintained fitness levels in the off season of their other team sports. They learned how to inline skate. They refined their existing skating skills and advanced their techniques in specialized skating disciplines like Speed, Slalom, Urban, Aggressive and Wizard. They discussed skate technique, tech and design and learned how to properly maintain their skates. All skill levels were welcome.

    Come Equipped:

    Inline skates were NOT provided. Students needed to have their own pair of skates and any other desired protective gear. Wrist guards were strongly recommended. Helmet, elbow pads, kneed pads and/or other crash pads were encouraged but can be limiting, so were, therefore, not required.

    Liability Waiver:

    In order to join the club, students and parents/guardians signed a liability wavier and medical release form. Be advised, the likelihood of minor injury, especially for the inexperienced skater, is relatively high. Sprained wrists, skinned knees, bumps and bruises are not uncommon.
