Local Coordinators are responsible for securing a location allowing for
a half day classroom session with a TV/VCR and a half day outside
training session on skates with a sheltered area available in case it
The clinic consists of a morning classroom session and an afternoon
practical session which is done on skates, followed by a written test.
The clinic covers safety, teaching techniques, basic skills, trail
awareness, setting up a patrol, and patrol structure. As a patroller,
you become linked to all other National Skate Patrol chapters
throughout the US and Canada. All participants of the clinic are
expected to have a solid skating background and the ability to perform
specific skating skills. Everyone involved in the clinic must wear full
protective gear including a helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads
and a heel brake. The participants should also have a friendly
personality and a desire to volunteer their time to help better the
community while supporting the sport of inline skating in an effort to
avoid skating restrictions and bans.
