Prep 

No Skates: No problem! We have skates for rent just for the occasion!

Own Skates: If you have your own skates, great! You can definitely bring them, just be sure they are in good working order PRIOR to arriving at class.

Parking: Park downstairs in the parking garage, we offer FREE 2 hour validation!

Instruction

Beginner 1 : Offered Saturday mornings and every other Wednesday evening, this is the way for first timers or people who are very uncomfortable skating outdoors to gain confidence indoors!

Beginner 2 : Offered Saturday mornings only, this class is a perfect way to ease into outside skating on the crowded boardwalk!

Then what?!

Practice: Skating takes LOTS of practice, we recommend skating 3-4 times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes to really start mastering the basics! If you need to rent skates outside of class we offer daily and weekly rentals!

Skates : If after 1-2 lessons you are really loving roller skating, we recommend purchasing your own roller skates to practice and really enjoy this awesome physical activity!!

Beginner Skate Class Level 2

This class is designed to help beginner skaters be comfortable on their skates, including strides, bubbles, balance, backwards, stopping, and outdoor skating. This class will take place inside Fritzy's Skate shop for the first 20-30 minutes and then include an outdoor Boardwalk/Beach skills skate for the remainder of class.

Open to all levels but this is a basic class for beginners. If you dont have skates we have quad skates for rent. Safety gear is strongly encouraged but not required. Ages 12+. 

*You must be comfortable standing up and marching/skating forward and attempting to stop. You must also be confident in your ability to try outside skating skills over rough terrain. If that seems like a little much, try our Beginner Skate Class Level 1.
