Lessons

Our lessons offer a much safer, directed, and faster learning experience than learning on your own

Whether private or group lessons, we tailor what's taught to the need of the particpants. If you've never stepped on a board before, or if you've skated for years, we can help you improve. We do our very best to offer a 'No bump - No bruise' style of lesson, breaking down each piece of the basics so you can push yourself without nearly as much risk of getting hurt. 

 

LESSON SCHEDULE

Group lessons - During normal operations we offer two seasons per year. Exact dates and times vary per season, but they generally run from March - April, and August - September, always ending right before our Skate League seasons begin (check the skate league tab for info). We are now co-sponsors with the City of Greeley Culture, Parks and Recreation Department in offering these lessons, so when we are approaching a lesson season check out their site here for exact dates, times, and registration - Sign Up Here

Private lessons - We offer Private lessons by appointment throughout the year, contact us for info if you are interested.
