Want to skate like a derby girl? Come to SJS speed skating class!

San Jose Skate (397 Blossom Hill Road, SJ) is hosting a speed skating class on Saturdays from 5:30 to 7 pm. We have two experienced inline speed skaters who have been very accommodating of the team, giving us quad skate-specific and derby-specific lessons. Class topics have included starts, stance, posture, stride, track pattern, recovering from falls, holding turns, and of course speeeeeed!

The drop-in fee is $10. Bring your skates and helmet (required)--other protective gear is up to the skater. Personally, I recommend your knee pads because, at least for my power thighs, they make a difference in how I stride and handle turns.

This class is open to all ages, and inline skates are also of course welcome. Also, there's an open Saturday night skate afterwards if you're interested.
