To ensure that our coaches can plan sessions accordingly, or that sessions are not cancelled due to a perceived lack of interest, please post if you are planning on coming.
For "regular" attendees, if you're not going to make it, please could also post to that effect.
We have also created a FB group where these sessions will be posted - depending on how well this works, we may use that to communicate training sessions instead of the forum.
You can join the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/875682835842615/
The session will now last for 2 hours to allow for covering of Technique Drills and Fitness training.
Hope Street, Battersea, Clapham Junction, South London, SW11 2DA
9:00 - 11:00
Please ensure you have a helmet or you will not be able to take part in the session.
This session will cost £5 for LSST members, £8 for non LSST members, and £10 for drop-ins.
We will be bringing membership forms for those wishing to join the club, or for non-members that have attended the free quota of sessions - details of membership can be found here (http://www.londonspeedskaters.com/membership.php)
Warmup will start promptly, followed by some off skate drills, so please arrive on time, and bring suitable footwear (e.g. trainers).
We also need to vacate the hall promptly, and you can get changed in the reception area / changing rooms.
- To get maximum grip, use brand new wheels, or at a minimum, ensure they are worn evenly...it will make indoor skating much easier and less prone to slipping
- Please ensure your skates are in a generally clean state
- If possible, remove your heel brake. This will help you perform some of the drills, and we should be in an environment where you can roll to a stop
For those that have not attended before, please ensure you read through this post ( http://www.londonspeedskaters.com/forums/-Training-Information-Sessions-Venues-Etiquette-etc--t98.php ) before stating attendance, paying close attention to the "Can I attend your training sessions?" and "Training Etiquette" sections.
