New Students

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 as our website is not updating correctly or consistently (and we are sorry about that–a new one is being build). We have been offering free classes on zoom twice a month. Get the newsletter for the next class.

We are now offering classes to new students at our Marymoor Park Location: the Athletic Slab next to the velodrome. Bring $1 in cash or debit card for parking.

Due to COVID-19, Skate Journeys is now offering private lessons in 20 and 30-minute increments. As we are into Fall/Winter, our classes will be offered in person when the weather allows and ONLINE at specified times. We are in the process of creating new methods to register, so bear with us while we convert to the new system during the first half of October.

Beginner-1 Students. This applies to all students who begin classes with Skate Journeys, no matter your level. This option matriculates you into the school. Your class will be a private lesson and tailored to your level, ability and goals.

Cost New students: Your first class is $35 and includes a 30 minute private lesson with an Instructor and if in-person, it includes skates and gear, if needed. We provide Inline/Rollerblade skates only with 4 free rentals We do not provide helmets! You may use bike helmets.

New students are welcome, and please note that there is a different procedure for anyone new to Skate Journeys.

It will be tailored to your level and ability. While registering for this class we will take some additional information to create your account. (If you select a returning class, you will only get a 20 minute first class, so make sure you select the Beginner -1 class for your first class. It’s $35 for 30 minutes.
  2. You will purchase your first class at the time you register.
  3. You will be sent a Docusign waiver. It is possible it will show up in clutter/junk. You must sign that, online, in order to be able to take the class. The document includes both a liability and hold harmless/covid waiver. Parents will sign same for kids.
  4. Make sure to designate shoe size and if you need gear as it will be need to be prepared for your use at the time the instructor shows up-they will be teaching when you arrive, so simply ask for your skate and gear basket–it is reserved just for you!
