Thank you so much. I really liked the Skate U.K. Basic Skills Program. This is actually almost exactly what I do with the kids now but I cater it for the inline skates, so cones are important. I think we'll do an informal warm up, maybe 20 laps clockwise and counter.

Currently, once they have the basics down, I usually start taking their heel breaks off. This is when they get excited, because they know it means they achieved the "next level." Then we usually start with toe-toe and heel-toe tricks and go from there. I'll focus more on edge work with the quad skaters. Last week the quad kids were so adorable, they learned trains and basic dances with the new adults. We've been having a blast. I never thought so many people would be interested!!!

I've been working informally with these kids for so many years now that our local roller rink has become an amazing place. Currently our rink is closed for a couple weeks, so we've all been showing up to other local-area rinks and teaching new faces. We have some new recruits. It's going swimmingly.
