-All parties will commence with a full health and safety briefing which includes fire safety arrangements for the building as well as our code of conduct for the duration of the party.
-This also includes a full Learn to Skate lesson.
-Party will not commence until all guests have arrived so it is imperative that you ask guests to arrive in plenty of time to ensure that they can be equipped with their roller skates and safety equipment ready to commence the lesson.
-All parties will commence with a compulsory Learn to Skate lesson that all participants are required to take part in whether they have skated before or not. Anyone not willing to complete this lesson will not be permitted to skate
-The lesson will be conducted by a certified instructor under the British Roller Sports Federation
-All participants will be instructed how to stand and balance and how to commence roller skating.
-All techniques instructed are required to be followed until the participant is comfortable on their skates and is balanced and we respectively ask that parents/guardians do not advise their child to deviate from these instructions.
-Parents/guardians/party organisers are responsible for ensuring that all participants behave appropriately during the lesson to ensure that the instruction is able to be delivered clearly
-Any participant that does not participate in the lesson or is disruptive to the lesson will not be able to take part for the safety of themselves and all other participants.
-Parents/guardians are advised to let their child complete the lesson on their own without support. Provided assistance hinders the participant at this stage and will not help them get skating and may cause injury to both yourself and your child.
-Once the lesson is complete and your child has attempted to follow the instruction and received assistance from a member of staff, if they are still struggling, we will then advise the parent/guardian on how to support your child correctly to assist them in still learning to skate with correct technique whilst protecting you both from injury
-It is imperative that all your guests arrive with plenty of time, as indicated within your party pack, to get ready for skating to ensure that the party commences on time

-Late arrivals will delay the start of the lesson which will mean that skating time is reduced.
-Due to health and safety reasons, anyone who arrives late missing the safety briefing and Learn to Skate lesson will not be permitted to skate
