Lessons

Learn to Skate and Ride at EKPark:

SAFETY is our biggest priority and in addition to our instructors paying close attention to safety through their lesson planning, all pupils are provided with protective padding to minimise the risk of injuries. Instructors have all been specifically selected and trained to ensure that your lesson is a fun yet rewarding experience. In addition lesson plans have been developed to ensure pupils maximise their development from each and every session. You can use your own equipment (subject to a quick equipment safety check by our team), or you can hire all you need from us.

See Prices and Times for details of lesson costs and schedules.
