Know where you are at with rollerskool teaching progressions
Every participant is introduced to the following Rollerskool teaching progressions:
A trial class is an introduction class that you can join with zero experience in inline skating. We believe that it is easier, safer and more effective to learn how to inline skate from zero using accurate tips and tricks. A trial class can be enjoyed at any operational hour at Dunia Inline Skate or, usually it is introduced at the very beginning of the first Rollerskool session. The aim here is not the speed of learning but getting the fundamentals right so the next progressions will become easier. Participants with good balance can stand up and roll in this class within twenty minutes and there are participants that need three trial classes to get a good grip standing up. In the end, we believe everyone has the right to learn how to inline skate well.
In this stage of development, participants are introduced to wearing the equipment correctly, standing up, rolling, adjusting the direction of rolling and falling correctly. The aim is to increase the student's confidence on inline skates. It is difficult to learn turning and stopping without adequate confidence on the rolling mechanisms on inline skates. This stage provides enough practice to do just that.
Tower stage focuses on skating, turning and stopping using limited movement from the limbs. This means in this stage participants will be able to accelerate, adjust direction and decelerate simply using a simple body position and shifting their body weight. Once completing this stage, participants will have the knowledge, skill and confidence to have fun on skates.
At the Airplane stage a participant will be introduced to skating, stopping, turning and shifting body weight using different limbs and body positions. Here a skater will find out which foot is stronger, how to manage their balance better and shift skating legs with ease. A very crucial stage should the skater want to take on skating seriously.
Scissor Stage is where a skater will start to learn how to defy gravity. In this stage a skater will learn that skating, stopping and turning can be done using different sides of a skate. With a certain set of skills skaters will be able to lean their body weight at a certain angle creating an arch using different sides of the skates to help maintain speed and acceleration. The skills learnt in the scissors stage is fundamental to be able to skate easier, faster and better.
When a skater bends their knees deeper, better cornering, higher speeds and more precise stopping is achieved. At the Bendy stage, skaters are introduced to these concepts and how they can significantly improve a skater's performance. Once completed a skater has better options and control on how to increase their skating output.
The skating culture in Indonesia thrives on competition. Skaters, clubs and organisers have regular competitions. To address this demand, some skaters will have the option to be pulled aside and prepare for certain events. A skater can join this stage as long as they are currently in the Tower stage. This stage does not identify a participants skill set, it just illustrate that this skater needs to be placed aside into the group of skaters getting ready for an event. once the evnt has concluded, the skaters will return to which ever stage the were at last.
Once a skater concludes the bendy stage, there are three more levels of skating skills that will enhance a skater from being an intermediate skater to advanced. Any which way, we have a curriculum developed enough to help any skater improve their skating skills.
