Hi everyone, we currently have vacancies for a couple of roller skating coaches/helpers at the club.

We are looking for someone with well established skating skills to be able to help teach our sport to all members of all ages and ability. Preferably already holding a FARS licence and DBS checked, (but can be gained at the club if needed).  Must be able to organise and take charge of group skill sessions and to organise games.

We currently run our general sessions on Saturdays. We have a team of helpers and coaches who are all volunteers and together they make a great team. Most are parents from either previous or currently skating children with us.

Yes as with most clubs it will be on a voluntary basis, we are completely non profit making. Depending on experience, you may also be bale to assist with the Artistic Academy from too, this would be a massive advantage if you could.

The Artistic Academy, which runs from 4.05 p.m. to 4.45 p.m. This is aimed at the skaters who wish to develop and push their skills further than what is offered in the General session and is attended by invitation only. This session is run by assistants with years of experience in artistic skating.

The Academy has grown steadily in which skaters seek to push themselves to their limits and beyond. Every week there is a short warm-up sometimes with a dance and a specific focus area for the coaches which they strive to get all skaters progressing in. Although this session is only 40 minutes, it is very intense skating to ensure all skaters get the most of each session.

Secondly, the main part of the club the General session. This is from 4.45 p.m. to 6.05 p.m. and is aimed at everyone no matter how advanced or basic their ability, including families. Although our only requirement is that the skater can skate around the hall without falling over unaided.

Throughout the year a variety of areas are covered, each week having a specific focus from fun games to new skills. In addition to this vast range of activities, the skaters have the option to complete our skills booklet. The skills booklet is designed to give skaters a chance to focus on and hone skills that push them to their limit and beyond to ensure all skaters progress and develop. The areas of focus are chosen to improve everybody’s abilities no matter their current ability.

Our dedicated team of volunteer coaches have been with the club for a considerable time use their expertise and knowledge to ensure all skaters progress and develop whilst having fun. This session consists of a warm up, followed by the focus area that week and finishing generally with a game or two.

If you are interested in joining us and maybe bringing your experiences with you to add to ours then please get in touch.
