Skate Gym

Skate Gym prices need to rise (boooo), but first we want to try something else (yaaaay!). If you book online, you get the discount price (old price). If you drop in, you pay new prices, and you may also risk there not being any places in class left. Help us maintain affordable Skate Gym at the expensive indoor venue by planning and committing to Skate Gym every fortnight. Read more below.

FAQ’s
CAN I HIRE SKATES?
You can, but sizes are limited and book out quickly. Hiring skates is $5 and safety gear is $5. Skates and safety gear is all thanks to the Darwin Roller Girls so your hire fees goes back into the local roller derby league.

If you need skate hire PLEASE email skates@shinertown.com.au FIRST and secure your skate sizes before paying for your ticket. Ensure you add your hire fees to the cart when you purchase your Skate Gym ticket.

CAN ANY LEVEL JOIN IN?
Please note that this is not a LEARN TO SKATE class. We do not have the number of coaches available in Skate Gym to assist super beginners appropriately. You do need basic skills in order to participate safely in class and build skills. This is particularly the case for kids class. We do have Learn to skate classes from time to time, or check out our private coaching which is perfect for speedy skills development.

I HAVE A CHILD UNDER 7 THAT CAN SKATE, CAN THEY JOIN IN?
If you have a 7+ child booked in, but they have a slightly younger skate-able sibling that is sidelined, or if you have a 6yr old that is capable of participating without extra assistance and supervision, we are flexible. We cannot however open the age group to ALL under 7’s because most younger children need much more support and smaller classes so we are able to assist them and keep them safe.

Please contact us at skates@shinertown to discuss your under 7 child.

This is not a suitable arrangement for all younger children.

I’M AND ADULT STILL LEARNING THE BASICS…CAN I COME AND DO AS MUCH AS I CAN AND DO MY OWN THING IF IT GETS ABOVE MY LEVEL?
As long as you are safe. It may not be ideal for you to attempt some skills, and we will let you know if there are concerns. If you are still wobbly, have little control and grabbing/holding/flailing and falling a lot as you skate, the super beginner learn to skate class or private coaching is for you. We need to ensure skaters have space to make mistakes, and a full class at Skate Gym increases risks with learn to skate participants.

ENTRY PRICES
Get our discount rate for booking and paying online. Drop in prices are $5 extra but spots may also book out quickly.

I’VE PAID, BUT I CANT COME NOW, CAN I USE MY TICKET NEXT WEEK OR GET A REFUND?
Not really. We respect that life happens occasionally and drop in is very convenient for those with tight schedules or unpredictable kids. If something unfortunate happens, please discuss it with us, we want to help. We are however aiming to keep our limited class spaces full and streamline the process. We have some sneaky room for shuffling, but please use that consideration respectfully.

Mararra Stadium is expensive, and Skate Gym can only survive with skater commitment. Prebooking also takes pressure off the front counter so coaches can be in class on time. It also helps to get classes as full as possible without going over capacity. Please book in at your earliest convenience and commit to a fun session at Skate Gym.

Rather than raise prices across the board, all we ask is you book online and be there and be awesome on skates.

Class warmups start promptly at 6 so please be on time, and allow enough time to get ready. If the stadium is locked, feel free to skate up outside. If the stadium is in use, please stay outside until our time slot.

We hold children responsible for remembering their own helmets!

Shiner Town advocates for use of safety gear. Helmets compulsory under 16. We reserve the right to instruct anyone to wear extra safety gear who we deem at increased risk of injury.
