Skating

Taking up an active hobby such as skating can help a child to keep fit and healthy, whilst also leading to good habits in adulthood. Roller skating works almost every major muscle group in the body. Not only that, kids today need all the help they can get to stay in shape and live a healthy lifestyle. And skating does just that by providing a great way for them to exercise! So, Advaith School in Hosur offers skating lessons as well to our children, in addition to all other activities. Our Skating lessons are provided to children by trained professionals, and practice sessions are held at Advaith. Skaters glide on a hard, smooth, durable surface on skates with rollers or wheels, and in recent years has become a popular sport. It is a form of recreational activity as well as a sport.

At Advaith, we have well trained and qualified coaches. Today, kids need help and encouragement to stay in shape and live a healthy lifestyle. So getting trained for Roller skating at Advaith provides a great way to exercise and students get to do what they like to do more than anything in the world – hang out and socialize with their friends on skates, the activity itself is better than running the same distance. This sport has helped us produce skating champions bringing glory to school and their families.

Support Techniques For :

01The "FLEET FLYING" Child
An adult should assist a child by walking alongside them having the child hold onto the adult index finger. The adult should keep their hand and arm relaxed so the child will feel comfortable and achieve balance on their own. This technique works well because the adult can clutch their fingers over the child’s hand if they begin to fall and keeping them from getting hurt.
The teacher assists an adult by skating alongside them. Hold the adult under their upper arm with one hand (just above the elbow) and with your other hand grasp the hand of the supported arm. The skater will be able to maintain balance while the teacher has control.
