Rollerskool Skill Levels
Learning to skate with Rollerskool, skaters advance through levels
Understanding Rollerskool's leveling system helps skaters look forward to the next skills they are going to learn. Every skater progresses differently, some need more than one class to land a skill, some might breeze through two skills in a class.
The speed a skater progresses in learning skills depends on many factors. Core strength, agility, dexterity, balance and coordination are just a few of the factors that determine whether a skater can progress from one level to another.
The main objectives of Rollerskool's levels are the following:
- Tiger Level
In Tiger Level Skaters are introduced to the very basics of balance, skate, turn and stop. Upon completion of this level skaters can skate, stop and turn.
- Tower Level
The Tower level is designed to help skaters further engage their core in skating skills. As the skater becomes faster a sturdier frame is needed to control these movements. Upon completion of this level skaters can initiate movement without lifting a skate.
- Airplane Level
Skaters at airplane level are challenged to strengthen their left and right feet independently. This is important to help skaters get ready for sports specific skills later on. Upon completion of this level skaters will be able to assess which leg is their more dominant leg.
- Scissor Level
Scissor Level is where skaters are introduced with more complex skating skills. How to maximize speed when turning or changing a skaters direction without losing momentum are key components needed when skating in sports like inline speed skating, hockey and skate cross. Upon completion of the scissor level, a skater will be able to control themselves on skates at different speeds.
- Bendy Level
At Bendy Level skaters are introduced to increasing speed and mastery to skating skills. Here skaters learn fast stops, efficient skating strides and elegant movements like the cross over. Upon completion of this level skaters will be able to join a skate club or community that focuses on competition or performance.
Understanding Rollerskool's leveling system will help you and your skater's path to becoming a proficient skater an enjoyable one.
All skaters are introduced to sports specific disciplines at the Tower - Scissor Level. This is due to the skaters having the sufficient skills and strength needed to have fun playing these sports.
When skaters are evaluated they can expect to receive a skate wrist band and certificate of accomplishment.
With Rollerskool's leveling system we help your skater progress in a fun, safe and efficient way.
