Roller skating school
At the roller skating school it is possible to take part in group trainings and personal lessons.
NB! Group trainings take place in any weather. Simply when driving on wet surfaces, it is recommended to wash and oil the roller skate bearings on the same day or to do more proper maintenance.
Bring roller skates, a helmet, preferably protective equipment and your own drinking bottle.
Group trainings take place at a specific time each week with other participants. Some group workshops may also take place irregularly and in different places depending on the training topic. All trainings and workshops can be followed through the roller skating school calendar, where you can also register for suitable trainings. For regular participation, it is recommended to purchase a monthly card or a 5x card. The summer outdoor season runs from May to around mid-September, depending on the weather. The winter season is usually from November to the end of March.
If there is no suitable training time for you in group lessons, you prefer a more individual approach or you want to practice with your group, we can offer private training, taking into account your special wishes.
The trainings take place at the agreed time and place as field training, driving training.
Its easier to get started with rollerblading on-site training, perform developmental exercises and learn various important techniques for rollerblading. A larger asphalt site with many other confounding factors is suitable for learning.
Driving training allows you to learn to skate in real situations. It is possible to offer routes of different lengths and characteristics, some allow you to develop your Freeskate skills better, others allow you to focus more on driving techniques. The basic skills of roller skating could be acquired in advance for driving training.
In private trainings we can focus on different levels and styles - basic roller skating skills, high-speed roller skating, freeskate roller skating, reverse roll skating, basic trick roller skating or Heelys sneakers technique.
Recommended training locations:
Pirita velotrekk, Lauluväljak, Lillepi park
Personal training can be agreed through the registration form and prices are available here!
Skating school levels
Levels and workouts
In the trainings of roller skating school, we start with Freeskate roller skating, which includes different skating styles (subtypes) such as speed roller skating, trick roller skating, off-road, downhill roller skating and combines different roller skating skills. Freeskate roller skating teaches you how to handle roller skates more skillfully in different conditions, using different braking methods, speed, turns, jumps, slides, acceleration, rolling on one leg, reversing and many other important techniques to better control roller skates. All these freeskate skills give the skater the freedom to navigate in most places in the urban landscape, freely passing various obstacles such as rolling on the lawn, driving on gravel roads, crossing stairs, descending a hill, climbing, etc.
All of these skills can be honed and developed indefinitely by learning and combining different skating styles and their skills. We do Freeskate rollerblading because it is exciting, opens up many opportunities in rollerblading and gives you the freedom to move wherever possible. This is a great roller skating style, especially for children, as it provides a strong and wide range of basic skills that are easy to practice in other roller skating or sports. The length of training is 1 - 1.5 hours depending on the age group and training.
Children, young people and adults
The roller skating school offers trainings for all age groups. In children's training, roller skating is learned through activities, the exercises are varied and playful elements are also integrated into the learning process to inspire children.
In the training for young people and adults, the theoretical and practical parts are brought together, explaining why and how different activities / exercises are done.
Training plan for beginners
The first lesson teaches the basics, which is the most important part of rollerblading, which every skater should know and be able to navigate skates correctly and safely.
This training is suitable for those who have not skated at all before, have not attended roller skating before, or also for more experienced riders who want to learn a more solid foundation of skating skills or incorrectly accustomed movements. The basics necessary for roller skating are acquired both in practice and in theory. Initially, we do stationary exercises - correct balance positions, different skate positions, squats, falls, standing up and explaining the most important things that should be observed. Then we start to perform exercises on the move - skating step, safe rolling, simplified turning, coordination exercises, plow braking, rolling on the lawn, heel braking (in the presence of a heel block), etc.
In this training, we learn safe and correct roller skating techniques to roll safely and securely in different situations. It is recommended to go through the first training in advance to make it easier to acquire basic skills. This is the second lesson of the elementary level, where we repeat and recall the most important basics and take on board all the most important techniques for controlling skates on the move. If necessary, we make more complex activities into different parts of the exercise to facilitate learning. We learn to maintain the weight and position of the body according to the activity, perform various balance, coordination and imitation exercises, and get acquainted with specific roller skating areas and their techniques. We acquire the correct foundation of roller skating skills or grind out incorrectly learned movements.
We focus on different ways of braking so that we can slow down safely and securely. Braking skills are one of the most important factors in the risk of rolling. Many skaters often lack confidence because they cannot control or slow down at higher speeds and descents. The different braking skills acquired allow the skater to ride bolder and open up many new possibilities.
Roller skating training is designed to learn how to slow down and stop skating. In addition, we do various introductory exercises to make the braking techniques clearer.
We plan to learn a number of different braking techniques such as plow braking, lawn rolling, T-stop, reversing, reversing. We also try a bit of heel braking, but it probably won't put much emphasis on it.
We also practice more complex braking techniques, such as powerslide, semi-plow, hockey stop, powerstop, etc.
Speed skating training teaches you how to maneuver and control your roller skates. In addition, we do various introductory exercises to better understand the turns.
Maneuvering skills are as important as braking skills. Many skaters often lack confidence because they do not know how to manage well enough and do not know the different ways of turning. Acquired different maneuvering skills allow the skater to ride bolder.
We plan to learn a number of different turns, such as step turns, parallel turns, slalom turns, cross steps, we make combined turns and we also practice speed braking.
When skating, the right technical skating step is very important, so that you can enjoy both longer and shorter rides without rushing and moving faster. The right riding technology allows us to ride a long skate, and if we learn to ride in the wind, it is possible to skate much more energy-efficiently with other riders.
The longer the distance, the more important the economical driving style is in order to keep your power supply alive for as long as possible.
At the workshop, we work thoroughly with the right skating technique, extending the rolling and rest phases along with developing a balance to drive fast and energy efficiently. To improve the pace of skating, we do various imitation and introductory exercises so that the technique becomes even clearer and more established.
In the second half of the training, we do small groups to practice the right skating technique and train in windsurfing.
Many skaters often lack confidence because they cannot control themselves at higher speeds and descents.
Losing control of descents is one of the biggest reasons for heavier falls, after which interest in roller skating may disappear for a while.
The right skills and choices within your abilities allow the skater to ride bolder and open up many new opportunities.
During the training, we take different positions to use when descending.
We will learn how to reduce the speed when going down at a moderate speed and which braking technique is most effective at higher speeds. In addition, it is shown how to drive down the grass as an alternative when descending, or how to save yourself by rolling on the grass, etc. when descending.
We take a look at the different situations of freeskate skating that often occur when skating in the city and elsewhere.
The story is often largely undiscovered on roller skates, as it is believed that you can only walk on a flat surface and on a light traffic road. In reality, the whole city is open to skaters, and in most conditions it is possible to find a solution on how and where to go next. By acquiring different tricks, it is possible to discover many new places where you would not have been able to skate before.
We plan to learn how to cross the road, different jumping options, rolling and driving on poorer roads, how to save yourself from falling, how to cross and be prepared for other surprises. We do the exercises initially on the field and at the end of the training, when there is time left, we also do a little driving training to test our skills in different real situations.
Advanced training plan
In this training, we use Freeskate skills and driving in front of the back and learn to use them together. If we have previously been familiar with back-to-back movement and can practice it, we can further develop the Freeskate style, which uses two-way movement. Together, these skills provide even more new opportunities for roller skating - if you want, you can jump at any time to change your direction back and forth, overcome various obstacles, cross more difficult terrain, skillfully make turns, steep brakes. If you want to surf more freely on roller skates, then this training is just for you.
Reverse skating adds a whole new dimension, opens up many new possibilities, makes roller skating much more exciting, and your overall confidence in roller skating grows.
When driving backwards, you can see what's going on where you came from, you can take pictures of it, for example, and train a little different muscles. Reverse skating is just as natural as rowing in front of your back.
Starting with rollerblading, to learn how to ride again, everything has to be made clear from the beginning, but now moving backwards. During the training, we learn the basics of rollerblading in reverse, perform various necessary exercises - we learn to skate, roll on our backs on asphalt and grass, practice turns, braking techniques and much more.
In this training, we briefly repeat and develop more skillful different braking techniques such as plow braking, T-stop, reversing braking, reversing braking, lawn rolling. And then we practice more complex braking techniques such as powerslide, semi-plow, hockey stop, powerstop, etc. We also check at the beginning of the lesson that the roller skates do not have a heel block.
In this exercise, we will repeat and develop more skillful different turning modes, such as step turns, parallel turns, slalom turns, cross steps, combined turns. In addition to the basic turns, we also practice different spins (circular turns and their combination)
In order to skate quickly, it is necessary to find out the correct driving technique, where the nuance of each movement is very important. When learning to skate, we focus on each detail separately - the correct body position, rolling on the outer edge, push, end of push, tilting, bringing the foot to rest, skating, etc. We make the right movements clear to ourselves, through many repetitions, in order to create movement skills, then we can connect the whole technique by extending the rolling and rest phases. In addition, we perform various imitation and introductory exercises to further improve the technique. We also practice sprinting technique, cornering technique. If the driving technique is clear enough, we can also get acquainted with the double push technique. In the second half of the workout, we do a little ride together to practice windsurfing. Clarifying the technique is crucial, because we can't keep up the pace for a long time without the right techniques.
In this training we will learn to conquer the mountains and control the descents. We go through different ways of descending, practice braking on descents and rolling on the grass at higher speeds. We learn the technique of slalom descent on a hill in order to maneuver skillfully during descents. Finally, we will make larger descents within our capabilities and we will also practice group descents with parts.
Freeskate driving training is essentially a fun public ride with built-in exciting learning elements to give participants more courage and skill to drive safely in the city. Driving training allows you to learn to skate in real situations, going through various strategic places on the journey, where you have the opportunity to go through obstacles and test your skills under the guidance of a coach. If possible, we will also set up an obstacle course somewhere so that you can practice the section of roller skating.
At the beginning of the training, we gather on the field and do some warm-up exercises before going around.
