Free Rollerblading Training Class for Children and Parents

Postby cimman » Thu May 10, 2012 3:35 pm

Instead of complaining about inflation in Singapore, I'm doing my bit to fight inflation.
For folks who wants to learn rollerblading as a family, children and parents, this would be a great opportunity. It is expensive to learn as a family, so I'm not charging anything for this. It is also great to be able to skate as a family. You don't want the little ones to zoom off on their skates while you're panting behind them catching up.

Date: 20 May
Time: 2pm - 3pm
Venu: McDonald's Bishan Park
Fees: Free

Things to bring:
1. Protective gear: wrist guards, elbow guards, knee guards, helmets.
2. Inline skates
3. Socks
4. Water Bottle
5. Insect Repellent
6. Towel
7. Band Aids (just in case of scraps and cuts)
8. Camera/Camcorder (optional, you might want to capture your little one taking his/her first step on a skate. :) )

Please register your interest in this thread so that I can monitor the number of people interested in this activity. Please also send me a PM with your email address. I'll need that for confirmation. Please also indicate how many people will be skating and if they're adult or children.

You'll need to bring along your skating gears and guards. If you need help in getting the gears, please let me know. There is a skate shop just across the road from Bishan Park (Freeskate Inline, Blk 338, Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, #01-1649). I know the owner and I can get discounts for you.

Depending on the progress of the class, I'll see if 2 or 3 follow up sessions are needed.

You won't be skating like a pro after 2 or 3 sessions, that will take a lot more practice. The aim is to know how to skate forward, how to fall safely, how to stop. The turning part is considered more advanced and will not be covered in this session. However, if you pick things up fast, and if there's time, I can go through that with you.

to all parents who are joining the class, please let the children wear shorts that you don't mind getting dirtied. They will have to sit on grass patch and there might be some mud and dirt. So don't bring along your best Sunday church clothes. The same goes for the adults too.

If it rained on that day, will the lesson still continue for instance at a later time like say 2.30pm or will it be cancel?

good question. If it rains, I'm afraid I'll have to reschedule it.
Parents who are interested, please send me your mobile contact number via PM. If there are changes in plans due to weather conditions, I will send out an SMS.
