Sk8skool 'Next-Level' Workshops aim to do just that! ... Take you skating to the next level. Whatever your level right now, we have experience with helping people like you go to the next level. We've coached people preparing for World Championships, and we have experience coaching beginners, intermediate and marathon skaters.
With 20 years experience of organizing International Skate Workshops, and International Skate Camps (see video), we are sure we can provide your skating team, club or group with expert advice, personal feedback, new drills and some exciting fun challenges. If you're looking for new inspiration for your training then give us a try. We will come to your club, on your track, or your normal training facilities, even if it is just a school playground or parking lot, anywhere we can skate with you.
Our workshops are customised to your needs, your group, from complete beginner up to elite skater. We'll listen to what you want, what you need and give suggestions as to how we can best use every minute of time that we have together.
We want to make the workshop as cheap as possible for you. We just need you to cover the travel, accommodation, etc. We will work with you to find the cheapest method of transport possible to get us there to you, and if you provide a place to sleep and eat, then we are happy. We'll gladly stay with you and eat with you if it is cheaper than a hotel. And it's more fun!

We generally advise that there be a minimum of 8 skaters at the workshop so that we can do pace-line, pack activities, relays and overtaking activities, and a maximum of 30 so people can get some personal feedback. Although under special circumstances we have done workshops for over 50 people! (We will bring 2 or 3 coaches in this case). Here's an example of the kind of programs we can deliver. Or we can design it specifically to YOUR CLUB needs...
