Joining Stratford Park Skating Club
We get enquiries from beginners and more experienced skaters
who are thinking of joining the club. If you are starting to
skate, the best time to arrive is 9:30 on a Sunday when our
beginners' session starts. We have a mix of activities, starting
with a warm up and with coached groups finishing at 11:30. The
emphasis at the club is on roller skate dancing, nevertheless we
do some figure and free skating. If you are advanced or want to
compete, our sessions from 11:30 to 13:30 on Sundays or from
19:00 to 21:00 on Thursdays would be appropriate. The details of
our sessions and our charges are set out below

Sundays at Stratford Park Leisure Centre, Stroud—09:30 to 13:30
There are two sessions.
09:30 to 11:30 — The first session — This is for skaters from complete beginners to FARS Dance Grade 6. Generally, after a warm up, we practise grades and dances and have games and free time. We follow the FARS grade structure. The dance practice in this session is intended for beginners with occasional intermediate dances. For the skaters who are interested, we have extended our activities to include free skating, figures and skills associated with dances that are not covered in the FARS grades.
11:30 - 13:30 — The second session — This is for skaters wanting to compete. We practice dances for all levels of ability including e.g. Glide Waltz, Olympic Foxtrot, Siesta Tango, Iceland Tango, Kilian and Paso Doble.
Thursdays — 19:00 to 21:00
These sessions are for skaters furthering their dance repertoire. The dances we practise range from basic to advanced dances. They run in smaller groups so that each skater gets more individual coaching.
