In 2009 we established RollaDome All Skate, a registered Charity, in North West London. It is run largely by volunteers and provides a broad range of recreational skating activities for young people and their families in local communities. Our main focus is on young people whose ages range from 4 to 18 but adults are also included through their participation in family skating events.
We introduce roller skating in a fun and relaxed environment. We offer roller skating lessons to learners at all levels, including adults, followed by coached training programmes in a number of roller sports including Skate Fit, Roller Derby, Inline Freestyle Skating, Figure Skating, Speed Skating and Inline and Quad Hockey.
Roller sports are particularly suited to young people from disadvantaged areas, who, for a variety of reasons, have little interest in the traditional competitive team games favoured by most schools and youth clubs. We run roller skating clubs in local schools and regular roller skating events for families, including roller discos. We also organise community-based recreational skating projects, workshops and summer camps for young people, using a variety of venues including sports centres, schools and parks.
We maintain a low instructor-to-student ratio, so as to ensure that all participants receive a high level of attention and support. Each of our eleven coaches has (as a minimum) a Level 1 Coaching qualification, a current enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, a Safeguarding and Protecting Children certificate and extensive experience in teaching young children.
We provide all the equipment required and teach children the basics of each Roller Sport through structured, non-competitive, team-based activities in a safe, inclusive environment. Each individual coaching session in any Roller Sport lasts for one or two hours, depending on group ability. Our training programmes run for twelve weeks and we grade participants according to the system adopted by the National Governing Body of each Roller sport.
Our Mission is to change the lives and expectations of young people and their families through participation in roller sports, We encourage them to be active, to learn new skills, to appreciate the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, to participate in recreational and competitive sport and develop a positive sense of well-being.
