Our 1 year Anniversay Celebrations 


6th February 2023

We recently commemorated our one-year anniversary with a thrilling roller skating party. To express our gratitude to all our members, we organized a special event that was free of charge. The celebration featured a live DJ, ensuring an energetic and vibrant atmosphere where everyone could enjoy the exhilaration of skating.

In addition to the festivities, we took the opportunity to launch a limited edition 1-year anniversary Skate Jam T-shirt. This exclusive item serves as a memento of our journey and the incredible moments we have shared together over the past year. The T-shirt design captures the essence of our community, showcasing our passion for skating and the spirit of unity that defines our organization.


We look forward to many more years of thrilling adventures, unforgettable memories, and strengthening the bond within our skating community.

Our first partnership in schools/ organisations


13th January 2023

We are excited to announce our partnership with Ivydale Primary School, marking the beginning of an incredible opportunity to offer skating lessons to the students after school.

By introducing skating as an after-school activity, we hope to encourage the children to explore new horizons, develop new skills, and instill a lifelong love for physical activities. We believe that such opportunities can have a positive impact on their overall well-being, encouraging an active and healthy lifestyle from an early age.
