Skating Lessons @ Penistone Leisure Centre


Skating Lessons at Penistone Leisure Centre


As a beginner, you will learn how to skate along (Stride 1) and glide, how to turn (A frame) and stop (Heel brake) and will feel a lot more confident on skates by the end


An intermediate skater can also learn more impressive looking ways to stop (Spin Stop), how to corner more sharply (Parallel turns) and start doing some ‘freestyle skating’ around cones (Lemons). You will learn a better, faster way to skate forwards (Stride 2) and make a start on skating and stopping backwards.


At advanced level, you will learn how to skate fast around curves backwards and forwards (Crossovers), turning from backwards to forwards (Mohawks), gliding and stopping on 2 wheels (Heel stop 2), another turn (Lunge turn), jumping, Slalom, an impressive backwards stop (Backwards powerslide) and some harder freestyle skating around cones (Backwards Lemons, Forwards and Backwards Snake, Criss Cross).

You will make the best progress if you come to a whole block of lessons as each skill builds on the ones before and it’s harder if you miss things out. Lessons are for adults or children and anyone aged 5 or over is welcome.
