Come skate for International Women's Day!

OPTION 1
The 1.5 hour (free) workshop hopes to improve your park ability & is not for people who have never skated before. You must be able to move in a straight line on your chosen discipline; un-assisted. You will learn to navigate your way around the park, tackle uneven surfaces and figure out if it’s ‘my turn to go?’ All in a safe and supportive environment thanks to facilitator Shiner Town.

OPTION 2
Not keen for the workshop but still eager to skate? Then it’s just a regular Saturday shred session! If you’re not among the workshop developing your skills there’ll be social skating occurring throughout the park. With music playing this is the perfect chance to catch up and meet other female skaters who share the same passion. No registration required!

A light dinner with be provided thanks to Saffron and vegan options will be available. PLUS every attendee receives a raffle in the draw!
