We’ve started our new trails course called FITNESS ON SKATES. It begins on April 21st with an informal lunch on April 14th to review the training document on skates, wheels and what to pack. Contact Trish for details. You may join at any time.

Here is the most recent newsletter for April 14/15, 2018

Regular classes this weekend, for April 14/15. And Mason is back for Saturday Slalom Skating classes at 9:45am and 11am. Join him, all levels welcome, kids and adults.

Summer Camps: Full day camps have only a few slots left. Don’t wait. Skate Journys Skate Camps.

Fitness On Skates (Skate FIT) class starts in 9 days.  While initially we called it Skate Fit or Fit Skate, we’ve now created it as FITNESS on Skates! (FOS). Here is what you want to know:

What:          A class for you to learn or improve skating on our trails

A class where you can find others to skate with (community skates)

A class to learn trail etiquette

A class to learn what types of skates you will need (it changes as your goals change)

A class to learn what to take with you when you skate

Fun Fitness

Where:        Log Boom Park (AKA Tracy Owen Park) located at the top of Lake Washington, in Bothel 17415 61st Ave NE, Kenmore, Washington 98028

Why there? Easy parking easy access from Seattle and the Eastside (most initial people wanted it in Seattle, this is the compromise) Also, it’s close to the location of lunch where we all go after Saturday morning classes. That part of the trail is flat, smooth and wide.

When:         Saturdays at 2:30pm. Group up, gear up and leave by 2:45pm. Class goes to 3:35pm (50 minutes) Dates will be sent out to attendees

Who:           Adults Level 3 and above, Kids Level 3 and above, but must be able to stop with the heel brake (or effective toe stop)

Why:           To enjoy fun fitness, to learn a new way to skate, to spend time outdoors, to get fit, maybe to set a goal to complete a 5K or 10K or marathon.

How Much:  The Cost of your regular classes. So you can either do it drop in, or buy a package.

You don’t need to come to every class, just drop in.

What else:   For this class you will need to join our What’s App group. This is a texting program on the phone. Given that it’s outdoors, we have found that the weather changes so often that we NEED a quick way to communicate. While this may be a barrier for some, just know that the instructor will communicate about whether the class is happening or not, through this app and if you are not able to use it, it’s up to you to track down the info. Whats App in the google store Version 2.18.92 (WhatsApp Messenger)

How?           Send an email saying you want to try this class. Then sign up on WhatsApp and let me know and we will add you to the Whats App (please get the APP first.)

Starts Saturday April 21st.

???              For those who have questions, there will be an informal gathering at Third Place Books (where we eat lunch after Saturday classes) at 12:45pm – 1:45pm this Saturday (April 14th) Come join us and ask all your questions. This is a free gathering on the 14th.

It is on the most northern spot in the shopping center. Look for Starbucks and you’ll find us. We have our sign out!  Come join either session: Saturdays or Sundays or both!  We don’t list the address because it sends you on a wild goose chase. Just google Tech City Bowl and note we are South of it in the same complex.
