News — skates
We have just kick start our ever-popular Indoor Skate Camp during the November school holidays and we would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response!

In this crash course, our instructor-to-student ratio is kept low at about 1:5 to ensure there are always enough of our dedicated instructors to go around. Each student will receive adequate attention from our dedicated instructors and can progress their learning at a good pace.

We've just wrapped up an energetic week of our ever-popular Indoor Skate Camp!

For 5 days, a bunch of earnest younglings trooped into the store nice and early (those who registered for the earliest slot at 10:30am) to gear up and have a crash course in inline skating basics. Usually our store opens to public at 12nn, so this was a lively start to the day for us.
The parents, meanwhile, huddled about to snap photos and watch the lessons. Parents are welcome to stay, although it can get a bit crowded. But no worries, over the next few days, the number of parents staying through the whole session dwindles.
At first, the little skating padawans set firmly on the astroturf for the essential steps: learning how to stand up and sit down, and proper skating posture.
Nope, the "gong xi fa cai" pose is not a leftover from the recent CNY, but to prevent them from flailing their arms haplessly and losing balance. Which people tend to do instinctively.
As they progress, the ones who are ready to roll (literally) will move out to the next zone, while our instructors continue to aid the ones who need more time.
Parents, don't worry if your child spends the first day in the grass! They always catch up soon enough, and it's important that everyone grasps the basics in the order taught, so they won't develop bad skating habits. That's more difficult to correct later, so getting it right early on is the best.
Also, it may be useful to note that all INLINEX lessons are Results Guaranteed (if not we will redo the course, on a weekend at the same location until he/she learns to move and stop, absolutely free)!
And away they go, rolling around in a circuit to work on their technique. Lots of falling is to be expected. It's normal! They learn how to fall safely and recover. As our instructors like to say: if you don't fall at least once, you're not learning.
The kids have a lot of fun, sometimes focusing quietly, sometimes giving tips to their siblings and new friends. They're all progressing nicely and have found their skating feet. The next few lessons will hone their technique further.
Our instructor-to-student ratio is kept low, about 1:5. This way, there are always enough of our dedicated instructors to go around, ensuring that each student has enough attention and can progress their learning at a good pace.
Before we know it, the session is over and it's time for a debrief!
