Alien Skate Club — Skate Ninja Program

Register here!

Taught by none other than Alien In-Line Master Instructor Shaun Unwin, Alien Skate Club - Skate Ninja Program is a revolutionary approach to teaching fundamental skating skills as part of a happy and healthy lifestyle! Alien Skate Club is aimed at children with a basic level of skating skills aged 6 to 12.

The mission of Alien Skate Club is foremost about having fun on wheels, while at the same time developing a participant's skating skills! Through a unique multidisciplinary approach to developing skating, we introduce a variety of skills and activities on skates intended to keep learners engaged and challenged. Alien Skate Club is run in the format of a 12 week program, with a weekly 1 hour session intended to be both convenient and balanced for busy families. Quite simply - Alien Skate Club will make you a better skater, and you’ll truly enjoy your time in this one of a kind program!

The skating proficiency gained during Alien Skate Club is a foundation for all skating sports and activities! Skating disciplines such as street, pathway, speed, artistic, freestyle, hockey, urban, aggressive, slalom, and skate park will be explored.

The Skate Ninja Program also exists to help inspire kids to embrace inline skating as a happy and healthy life skill. Being part of Alien Skate Club can teach us so much about experiencing success and bouncing back from failure. We learn to take calculated risks and deal with the consequences. We learn to be an individual and a teammate. Valuable life lessons that kids miss out on when they quit traditional sport clubs and associations.

Summer Skate Camps

Registration will open early 2020!

Alien In-Line offers summer camps for kids aged 6 to 12 built around the activity of inline skating, as well as inline instruction integrated with third party group camp activities during the summer months.

Alien In-Line expert instructors will provide an exciting and fun summer camp experience! We’ll begin by introducing and reviewing a variety of basic skating skills to ensure everyone can enjoy the camp activities at a similar level. Further, to build & develop participant’s skating abilities, a significant amount of time will be spent on skate activities and playing some of our original & fun AIL games on skates! We’ll also introduce some unique tricks and special skills during the camp. Participants can expect lots of skating time with 2 x 90 min. skating sessions daily. In between skating sessions, traditional camp activities will be incorporated, as well as a lunch period and occasional rest break. A skater to instructor ratio of approximately 12 to 1 will ensure a good deal of individual attention for each participant. Discussion & review regarding use of gear, skate maintenance and set-up, and proper warm-up and preparation for skating will also be part of camp.

The camps are broken into morning and afternoon sessions of approximately 3 hours each, with appropriate intermittent breaks, as well as a lunch break of 1hr.
