Lessons and Instruction
WAR Homepage > WAR Resources > Lessons

The first time most people put on inline skates they say that it looks much easier than it is. We recommend lessons for any new skater and for skaters wanting to increase their skill level. Inline skating becomes a lot more fun when you are relaxed on the skates and have a sense of control over the wheels.

Free Clinics
WAR's Rock Creek Park Clinic
What better way to learn how to skate than WAR's free clinic? While not intended to be a full service skating school, several volunteers including USSG certified instructors meet here on a weekly basis to teach basic and intermediate skills and useful skating techniques.
WAR Homepage>WAR Resources>Lessons>WAR Clinic is a coalition of skate schools providing free inline skating lessons on Free Skate Lesson Day, May 12th in 2007, in major cities across America. The goal is to introduce more people to our sport and absolutely no experience is required to take a free lesson. Register now to participate in Free Skate Lesson Day and make inline skating your new activity for 2007. If you are not able to attend Free Skate Lesson Day on May 12th, your local skate school will provide a two-for-one free lesson discount for you
