If you’ve been waiting for a chance to improve your skating skills, the Ark Valley High Rollers (AVHR) will be hosting a slew of skateboard and roller skate clinics on May 14 and 15 in Salida. Ramp ‘n’ Roll Salida will start at 9:00 a.m. both days, offering everything from clinics on technique to private lessons. Participants can also stay after the clinics for the open roller derby scrimmage at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Proceeds from the clinic costs will benefit the Ramps and Alleys Clubhouse for the youth of Chaffee County.
“We plan to make this a yearly event for our community which will also attract non-local participation,” says Stacy Falk, owner of Ramps and Alleys and program coordinator for the AVHR Quad Club. See the registration site for class details and registration links.
