Kiwi Skate Day – 2 March

Come on down to the Rink for an amazing day of skating on the 2nd of March!

Try your hand at artistic skills, speed skating, hockey or roller derby. There will be prizes, games, a roller disco and races throughout the day. You can buy food from the shop and get information about all the roller sports clubs.

If any of our skaters are interested in doing a demonstration routine for the public please have a chat with your coach. We all have a story of the time when we saw a strong and graceful artistic skater doing their thing and it made us want to get our skates on! You could be that inspiration for a whole new batch of skaters.

Watch this space, there will be more information coming and there will be lots of jobs for anyone who wants to be part of the excitement.

Patch start up 2019

Hi everyone
Welcome to a new year! We have some exciting changes ahead and look forward to sharing these with you in more detail when patch starts back on 12 February.  But in the meantime here is a quick outline of what is instore.

5:30 – pm – 6:15pm Tuesdays – Patch class will be held for new skaters and skaters who are in patches 1, 2 and 3.

6:15pm – 7pm Tuesdays – Patch squad for skaters who were previously in patches 4 and 5.  This will be a group lesson taught by some of our private club coaches with a view to skaters earning medal tests and having the possibility of travelling as a team to league competitions.
Skaters in the patch squad will also be encouraged to help with the pre-patch skaters during the earlier session.

In addition to the Tuesday night classes, there is an opportunity for you to join a Saturday morning learn to skate class. This session runs from 10am – 11am and consists of half an hour of off skate fitness and half an hour of skating skills.  The cost for this class is included in your patch term fees.

Our new patch manager will be Tania who will be available along with Janine to answer your questions.  

Regards
UHRSC committee
