Learning The Skate Excellence Way…
Skate excellence programs are made for the individual learner; there is no time limit on your progression,
Skating elements are broken down into small skills called competency competences are the building blocks that make the skating skill.
Working with this format allows the individual to work at their own pace with no pressure it is has important to master the competency as to complete the grade, skate excellence celebrates the fact that you have achieved, after all one whole grade is just a bunch of competency!
The Skate Excellence programme addresses the different learning styles;
Skate Excellence is a continue assessment programme, our on line portal, will allow you to track your progression and keep you up to date with your own individual learning.
The skate excellence method of Recap, layer, plant, and grow is to ensure the new skater builds a strong foundation and understanding.
|RECAPS||On skills previously learnt to build a strong foundation|
|LAYERS||The new skill|
|PLANTS||Segments of new skill to come|
|GROWTH||Is the outcome!|
RECAPS on skills learnt, LAYERS the skill, and PLANTS new skills which achieves the skaters GROWTH.
We always recap on what has been taught because repetition of movement will develop into meaningful skating patterns. Recapping also improves muscle memory and builds strength within a skill for a strong foundation. ‘Good Practice Makes Perfect’ – a skater will become very good at performing a skill through quality repetition.
