FISC Wednesday Beginner/Intermediate Street Skate

Wednesdays from April 5, 2017 to September 27, 2017
(excludes holidays).
6:15 PM gear up 6:30 PM departure

See the calendar for all events or schedule changes.

On Wednesdays from April 5, 2017 to September 27, 2017 we have our beginner/ intermediate level skate. There will be no FISC skates on holidays.. We usually don't skate if it's raining or the streets are wet.

Beginners or "never-evers" can take FREE starting and stopping lessons in the parking lot from certified National Skate Patrol (NSP) members or USSG certified instructors . The route is 5-8 miles and is relatively flat. This is a no-drop skate which means we skate a beginner/ intermediate pace geared towards the slowest skater. We have a refreshment stop at a store on the route. The skates are run and led by members of the National Skate Patrol (NSP). The NSP members safely lead the skaters thru the streets calling out hazards such as cars or bad pavement. The NSP sweep skates in the back of the pack only as fast as the slowest skater to ensure no one gets left behind. Helmets and all protective gear is encouraged. Fun for all ages, everyone welcome. Afterwards we stop at a local restaurant for food and drinks.

The skate starts from a public parking lot on Orchard St (not Orchard Lake Road). Look for mailboxes in the lot. Orchard Street is off Farmington Road, one light south of Grand River. It is behind Fresh Tyme Market in the Farmington Shopping Center. See map below for location.
