    About this course

    This inline skate course is taught through video tutorials with accompanying training notes. Nearly 2 hours of detailed video lessons are divided into a progressive course syllabus, allowing the skate student to learn at their own pace through step-by-step instructions, detailed demos and explanations. The training notes then help to structure your practice in a way that will lead to safe and continuous learning of new skills.

    This course will help you learn how to skate backwards from scratch using transitions to get there and back. You will know how to stop using two non-heel braking methods (t-stop and lunge stop), and master higher speed turns with the forwards crossovers and lunge turn. We will also focus on your skating technique and learn how to skate more efficiently so that you can improve your fitness.

    The course will take several months to complete depending on the amount and frequency of practice time available to the student. You may be learning the skills presented here for the first time or you have been using them for a while but know they need some tweaking.
