Inline Skating by Skate Mode - Mini Series 1

Sponsored Review

Out of the blue, I received an email from Skate Mode offering a complimentary holiday camp for the girls. This is like one of the best deals for us! The girls have been bugging me to learn rollerblading for the longest time. Now to be able to experience it with professional coaches and at a location so convenient for us, it’s a blessing indeed!

Skate Mode is a privately run school for inline skating. They started off in the East teaching children how to inline skate. After a few months, they moved their operations to the West (near Jalan Jurong Kechil) as there was a higher demand for such services there. Skate Mode has regular weekly lessons at their current location and have shared their passion for inline skating with more than 60 children from ages 4-13 years old.

Do check out their FB page and see how they have conducted their lessons at places like Toh Yi Drive, East Coast Park, West Coast Park, and now Yishun Park (that’s us!).


Having the lessons at a Yishun Park Playground has one great advantage, the kids get to enjoy the playground before and after lessons and also there are ample shades, plus the restrooms are just nearby.



Day 1
The girls learnt how to stand up on their skates, how to fall in the safe & correct manner and how to move forward.

Wearing the gear took about 10mins, it’s the first time for all the six girls. Thankfully, Coach Saffy from Skate Mode helped out as well. It’s so cute to see all of them in their gears.



Chernise is the first one to be ready. Bravo!

Coach Angela teaching the girls how to sit correctly with their skates. Turn to the side and proceed to kneeling and eventually stand up.






Jayne did pretty well. The posture is quite good.

Joey was one of the first to learn how to stand up by her own on hard ground. Proud of you girl!


Once step one is completed, the training moves on the the nearby grass patch. Initially, the girls are not so willing to sit on the partially wet grass but they are all very sporting and with the coaches’ constant encouragement, the girls conquered their unwillingness.

The three youngest trainees – Sophie, Zoe and Jayne.


And the elder team – Cheryl and Joey.


On the grass patch, the girls learnt how to stand up and fall in the correct way. To fall forward on their knees and hands, then glide forward onto their elbow guard.




Jayne is the more relaxed learner and Sophie is the serious type.

Step two completed. Next is to walk a few steps on grass.


This is Coach Angela who is super patience with kids and also very encouraging. She will constantly hi-five with the girls to ensure they keep the momentum to learn on. Truly professional!

Jayne is no doubt a blogger’s child. Any moment she is ready to pose, even lying on the ground is not a problem.


With that ends the lesson for Day 1. Time to pack up. The girls are looking forward to their treat of ice-kachang during lunch.

  14. You could easily think of one about gravity, explaining why the skateboard stays on the ground and comes back down after flips. You can introduce the laws of physics and motion as well. For some sample ideas get the help of Skateboard Lessons in Chicago.
