Our adult course is aimed to learn to safely skate in the Vondelpark and through the city. You will learn how to handle breaking, sharp turns, tram tracks, and curbs for example.

By learning how to fall first, you will get the confidence to build up your skills safely. We start very slowly and increase difficulty bit by bit in small steps.

The lesson is every other Saturday from 12.00 until 13.30. 
at 12.00 we will all collectively put on our skates together and then go in to the park at about 12.15. At about 13.15 we will be back in the store to take everything off.

The starting spot is the Thisissoul store on the Overtoom 327. 

All levels are ok for this course, however, you do need to know how to at least get up on your skates and move around on them a little bit when you join the group. Otherwise we recommend that you do a private lesson first.

There can be anywhere from 3 students to 12 students in the group and levels wil vary. Each exercise that we will do can be done on the skaters own level.

We have an entire list filled with skills that would be good for each skater to learn. Every lessons we pick a different set of these skills to work on. The goal is to mark off all exercises so that you can be a versatile skater.
