New Students

Updated March 2022: Indoor Classes are currently offered at Lynnwood Bowl and Skates. 

New Students should subscribe to the newsletter on the interest form as we ONLY will be sending out information on registering when classes are offered through the newsletter. This is because this website is not updating correctly or consistently (and we are sorry about that–a new one is being build). 

  • REQUIREMENTS:
    We move indoors to Lynnwood Bowl & Skate for morning classes on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • We require all students to wear the protective gear (helmet, elbow, knee, wrist guards) while skating during our classes and open skate sessions.
  • Due to COVID-19, and the requirements of the rink, all students must be vaccinated. Masks are optional. We allow students 5 years and older (kids & adults) and you must be ready to show proof of vaccination. This is not negotiable. 

And for those who are unable, or choose not to get vaccinated, we are intending to offer outdoor classes when we both hire an additional staff member and it warms up! 

Beginner classes each Saturday and Sunday: Separate Kids and Adult classes are offered both Saturday and Sunday. Arrive 9:30am, for your 9:45-10:45am class. Cost is $35 for the first class and your second class taken the next day or following week will be $17. 

Cost for all levels: $35 for a 45 minute small group lesson and a minimum of 45 minutes for open skate time. Total: 90 minutes. Also, if you take a second class the same day on Sundays, the second class is only $17. Ask us for the code. We provide Inline (Rollerblade) skates with 2 free rentals of skates and gear (+tax). We do not have roller skates, AKA quad skates for our lessons. And we will be unable to use LB&S skates. We do not provide helmets! We require them, and you may use bike helmets.

Returning students: a returning student is considered any student who has taken a Beginning class understands the fundamentals of the V-Walk (AKA Duck Walk) basic stride and can stop (fairly well) on their inline or quad skates. 

Group classes: We are back to offering group classes. Our intention is to offer them in small groups of 3 to 6 for the firs three levels, up to 10 students for the upper levels, but as we are starting up again, we are in the process of re-certifying our staff, so the size of the classes as we begin, may vary.
