Private lessons are available Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 2.00pm and all day
Saturdays (daylight hours).
Lessons are conducted on flat, smooth surfaces free from debris or anything
else that would hinder your performance during the lesson. Covered areas are preferred
to make sure excess heat or rain does not affect the booking time and for this reason
Saturday gives a greater choice of venues. Weekday bookings will usually be outdoor
venues and subject to the weather being dry.
The current rate is $50 per one hour lesson for one person and this price will
include all equipment supplied by SkateAbout. If you would like someone else to
join in add $10 for each person (ie 3 people in the lesson would cost $50 + $10
+ $10 = $70 - this is the total cost shared between all 3 skaters). Up to 4 is considered
maximum for a private lesson, after that you should look at a group rate that gives
more time for the lesson so everyone gets a good share of personal tuition.
The Private Lesson rate will also include (if you need it) high quality skates,
knee pads, wrist pads, elbow guards and a helmet if you don't have one. Of course
if you have all your own gear bring it along.
Content is taken from the worldwide IISA programs which are run for our courses
at various places around Perth from time to time. Absolute Beginners right through
to good skaters who want to learn more complex moves are welcome as Andrew Curran
your instructor can teach a great variety of accredited skills. All IISA skills
are listed in the IISA Skills section of this website and note that a much larger
repetoire of jumps, inline hockey, street and trick skating can be taught. Notes
are provided on each IISA skill highlighting the main points of that skill. Safety
equipment is encouraged and can be supplied free should you not have your own. Where
to skate, what to buy and skate maintenance are all subjects that can also be discussed
during your lesson.
Alternative types of lessons can be discussed should you be after a specific type
of skating requirement, such as a personal escort around a particular skating circuit
like the Narrows Bridges etc. Skaters can be taken down the tricky hills or over
the roughest pathways and shown how to deal with these obstacles the best way possible
for that skaters ability. Just give Andrew Curran a call to find out more on 0407
