Sunday Braking Clinic:
Sundays at 3:00 pm no skills required.
We meet at the Bath-house in Piedmont Park. Equipment available for rent
through Skate Escape on Piedmont and 12th Street. The clinic will
continue to skate around the Piedmont Park areas to develop
basic urban skating skills.
Sunday Zzz Skate: Meets at the large Parking lot inside Piedmont
Park at 12:00 and departs at 12:15. NSP led and minimal urban skating
skills, good braking control for going down hills. This is a beginner
street skate going less that 10 mph. It makes a coffee and snack stop and
is a low key social skate. The goal is to get used to the unique
situations of street skating. The skate takes about 2-2.5 hours and
finishing up in the Park. Stay and meet other skaters that meet up in
the Park and play.

Meets at the Carter Center North Parking Lot with the rest of APRR at 8:00
and leaving the lot at 8:30. This skate also proceeds at less than 10mph.

of lights or reflective gear.
Tuesday Night Skate.
The next step above the MNS. Meeting at the Cater Center North Parking
Lot and leaving at 7:00. This skate proceeds at a faster pace and is not
for the beginner street skater. Average speed is above 12 mph.

No NSP on Wednesday night, sorry but we need a night to play too.
Once you are comfortable on the MNS and TNS you are able to hit the streets
with the rest of the club and join in the fun of urban skating.
