LAYOUT OF THE LEVELS.
The "classical" disposition of the different levels and activities of classes is indicated below in an informative way and may be subject to change at some specific moment. From level 2, some classes leave the Paseo García i Fària, to do some specific skating practice (ex. classes of stairs, descents, "cesping", sidewalk jumps, etc.). Thus, we recommend that you arrive punctually at the beginning of the class so as not to miss it.
In our method there are no entrance exams or strict follow-ups, each one manages his times depending on the practice he can do. Although the monitors and monitors will be aware of the evolution and willing to give suggestions and advice, if they require it.
LEVEL 0 CLASS (BASIC):
At this level we begin to make contact with the skating and the skate. We learn how to carry a skate correctly, the use of regulatory protections, as well as other protections (clog, helmet); and, the convenient benefit of its use.
We begin by finding the balance in the Basic Posture, the Safety Posture, the Charlotte (initial skating step, skating by weight), the control of the fall (to minimize risks and gain security), the Natural Turn in A.
We face the first challenges of braking, moving, braking and falling without damage. We will also learn tricks to avoid small curbs, the first ramps, low steps and recognize different floors.
Within this level we introduce ourselves to the first notions of the different types of skate, mechanics and maintenance.
LEVEL 1 CLASS (INTERMEDIATE):
At this level we develop techniques that allow us to perform a more secure urban skating, with more resources when negotiating obstacles. We prepare to go out and enjoy the most complex urban skating. We work with the balance, the postures and develop skills that assure us options to solve unexpected or complicated situations.
We learn to generate average speed. (Skating by Push), we emphasize the flexion as the main point of urban skating to improve balance and stability. We practice the turn in line with flexion (greater stability). We are faced with larger urban ramps and different forms of descent (various forms of slalom, control by induced fall, etc.), stairs of several steps, curbs of street, etc. We work skills for general freestyle preparation, adapted as a street resource. Also some additional brake forms. Small jumps.
LEVEL 1 PRACTICE: At this level, the practices are started outside the class space. Here, everything learned in class is put into practice, safely and the new skaters prepared for the routes.
ROUTE/CLASS LEVEL 1:
What has been learned in class should be practiced in the street, and, therefore, there is a small route to practice what has been learned at the level: to gain confidence, to test learning and to measure progress.
This route is for beginners, in groups, accompanied and accompanied by monitors and / or instructors who will give explanations and stops to intensify the exercises.
The objective is to generate security and confidence for the first outings of urban skating. Know different soils Make short trips.
LEVEL 2 CLASS (ADVANCED):
At this level we are perfecting our skating, we learn to skate at moderate speed with advanced push technique. We incorporate back travel with greater speed and safety, and transitions and turns. Likewise, we learn braking techniques for more impact (T-brake, Wedge brake, Braking principle for skidding, etc.). We work muscle strength and endurance. We start with freestyle beats and skills to generate more balance work on the axis itself. We take off the cue for the class, and then we can put it back on the skate. Medium jumps
ROUTE / CLASS LEVEL 2:
This route is to practice resistance to medium distances, different floors, and medium urban ramps with stairs. With the same theme of gaining confidence in urban skating and prepare for greater autonomy.
We also make stops to apply the knowledge of classes and practice the techniques in the street. "Urban skating as an option for leisure transport, its civic, sustainable and ecological use"
The objective is that a skater or skater can generate autonomy, longer routes, more safety and enjoy urban skating with more ease. This level is the one indicated for APB routes.
LEVEL 3 CLASS: (PERFECCIONING):
At this level we learn speed skating technique, adapted to the urban. We reinforce advanced brake forms (Power Slide, Souls, Acids, etc.) Freestyle skills. High jumps with and without ramp. We include skate park practices.
The objective is to make known and practice different urban skating modalities.
ROUTE / CLASS LEVEL3:
This route is to practice resistance at longer distances, in different soils, with steeper ramps and at medium-high speeds. On this route, you have to be totally autonomous. "The skate as sustainable urban transport".
The objective is to be able to make long journeys, with little effort, using techniques that allow us to consume less resources and be able to enjoy long walks or a popular marathon. This level is recommended for APB routes mid-month and some end of month.
ROUTE / CLASS LEVEL 3.5:
This route is for advanced level. They are made at moderate and high speeds. The use of ramps and urban practice is intensified with significant drops (preferably by bike lanes). Resistance and strength are used to generate funds. Recommended for marathon training and long runs.
The objective is to equip the skater with techniques that help to overcome different types of urban scenarios.
This hockey practice is intended to offer more urban modalities on inline skates. It is held every Tuesday, within the class schedule.
There is usually material but it is recommended to bring your own stick and mandatory protections.
We start with general notions of posture, stick and puck, passes, displacements, turns, etc.
We make the classes totally practical, that is, there is always a match!
