Now that the kids are back to school, getting your family into a healthy, normal routine of staying active and socialising safely is more important than ever. Our soft play areas and créche facilities have reopened and kids’ classes are back on the schedule, including our exclusive Scooter Squad classes. These unique classes are a great way to get your kids moving again—and they make learning scooter safety a fun and social experience.
With interactive games designed to help children learn how to ride a scooter properly, master scooter tricks and make friends, each class balances fun with safety. Carefully selected music and disco lighting help make the experience even more exciting and memorable.
David Lloyd Clubs is dedicated to protecting your family’s health and wellbeing, so we’ve added a number of new procedures for keeping kids safe while they stay active. All our kids’ classes, including Scooter Squad, are delivered to adhere to social distancing guidelines so your kids are free to focus on their scooting skills!
Here’s what your kids have to look forward to in their next Scooter Squad class:
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, and all equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each 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 three different age groups. Classes at all age levels include road safety for scooting outside the club. As children progress, the class structure is similar, with features that are varied and adapted as they gain experience and confidence:
Age 3 to 4:
Fun interactive games that teach essential skills such as stopping safely and scooting around obstacles.
Team games that teach counting and help children to identify letters and numbers.
Disco lights and music, including our scooter song.
A scooter story at the end of each session featuring our two characters, Trix and Wheels.
Age 5 to 7:
Interactive games for learning further essential scooter skills.
Features a scooter rap rather than a song.
Children are introduced to scooter tricks to complement their basic skills.
Age 8 to 11
Tricks masterclass for kids to learn and practice tricks they can perform on their scooters.
Kids start to use low ramps to develop a wider range of tricks.
Fun, interactive individual and team games.
Music and disco lights.
One Scooter Squad class is never enough. That’s why we have an awards scheme for children to work through. As they complete tasks and learn new tricks, kids can earn badges and stickers to celebrate each achievement. There are also participation awards for attending a certain number of sessions.
Scooter Squad classes are available at selected David Lloyd Clubs and will be introduced in further clubs throughout 2020. Find your local club.
