Where are the classes?

Classes are held at Lynnwood Bowl & Skate.

We are also planning to offer Eastside classes but have been unable to find a location that would allow us to offer regular classes. The private gyms we were renting have gone in a different direction. The community centers don’t allow us to rent.  regularly so they are not an option. We continue to offer our summer camps on the Eastside.

What if I get sick or miss the class?

You need to reach out to us via email or phone/text to let us know. If you give us advance notice (at least one hour prior) we will place that class on account for you and you can use the next week or in the next month. If not, we will charge you $10 for the admin work in rescheduling. Just email Trish Alexandar » and let us know the name of the student.
You will receive a code to use for the make-up class, which will allow you to register without payment.

Is water available at the venue?

There is no water fountain at the venue, and we encourage you to bring your own water bottle to the class. We are working on getting one but plan on being self-sufficient for right now.

Is there any guidance on how to buy skates?

We have prepared a video at Shop-Task that guides you on how to select your next pair of skates. You can find it HERE

Absolutely! Trish has a video that talks about it. You can find it HERE
