Have your kids tried our exclusive Scooter Squad classes yet? These unique sessions are a great way to get children moving, and they make learning scooter safety a fun and social experience.
There are interactive games designed to help children learn how to ride a scooter properly, master scooter tricks and make friends. Carefully selected music and disco lighting help make the experience even more exciting and memorable.
Here’s what your kids have to look forward to in a Scooter Squad session:
We’ve partnered with Micro Scooter to offer top-of-the-range scooters for kids in every class. Your child will have a scooter for the entirety of the class.
If your child has their own scooter, we would encourage them to bring that should they wish to use it. We also ask children to bring their own helmets to each class, to ensure they can scoot around safely.
Fun for every age group
Scooter Squad is offered for different age groups. Classes at all age levels include road safety for scooting outside the club. As children progress, the class structure changes as they gain experience and confidence:
