How to Get the Most Out of Skating Lessons

It’s officially summer vacation! What does that mean? More time for roller-skating, laser tag, and family game nights at Funcity Sk8. It also means there’s finally time to brush up on your skating skills (or master your wheels for the first time). Make the most of skate lessons this summer!

Funcity Sk8 Summer Lessons

funcity sk8Sometimes do-it-yourself ends in disaster. If you’re feeling unsure on your wheels, the best way to gain confidence and skill is to sign up for skating lessons. Funcity Sk8 has weekly skate lessons for kids in Webster. We also offer roller-skating lessons for adults. Our professional skate instructor will teach you the basics of safety, standing, movement, balance, speed, stopping, games, tricks, and more. Classes include one month of sessions on Tuesday nights or Sunday afternoons. Students will receive a new pair of roller-skates with their skating lessons.

How to Prepare for Skate Lessons

  1. Dress appropriately. Loose, comfortable clothing or fitted, stretchy exercise gear is appropriate skating lesson attire. And don’t forget your favorite socks!
  2. Come early. Give yourself time to stow your phone, check the fit of your skates, and settle in before the start of the lesson.
  3. Meet your instructor. You’ll feel more comfortable asking for help during your lesson if you introduce yourself beforehand.
  4. Come ready to learn. You won’t get much out of the class if you can’t take instruction. Come ready to focus, try hard, and ask for help if you need it.

Call Funcity Sk8 and Play to sign up for summer skate lessons.

Donkey Kong Turns 35!

Before there was Halo (or even the Xbox), there was a golden age of video games. Frogger, pacman, Donkey Kong, and Mario ruled this era of arcade games, Playstations, and Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems. Relive the glory days with Retro Game Night at Funcity Sk8 and Play.

Donkey Kong’s 35th Anniversary

retro game skate nightKids today might have their fancy graphics and in-game stories, but we’re harkening back to a simpler time, when every video game was cutting edge and every gamer pushed the boundaries. July 9th marks the 35th Anniversary of Donkey Kong, and we couldn’t let one of our favorite retro games go uncelebrated! Flex those fingers and grab your hammer. You’ll need to make it past Donkey Kong to save the princess.
