Our Approach


We are not a typical skating academy. In addition to the regular sessions, students also develop specific skills in small groups based on their abilities so that they can absorb the most out of every lesson. In addition, we also ensure that the student has fun during the training.


What can be more important than the safety of your child. At MSA, we ensure that the student steps on the ground only after he has worn the skates properly, fitted the helmet correctly and has worn the necessary protective gear.

Beginners Training

So you have decided to start rolling. This is for enthusiasts and starters who want to explore the sport be it for fun or fitness. We start gently at one place where we talk a bit about theory and learn a few skating essentials before we start to roll. Then the fun really starts. A student needs to be around 4 years old to begin with the sport. Beginners generally start either with quad skates or the inline ones. We emphasise that the student learns at his own pace.

Intermediate Training

Once you are done with the basics, you are now on a skill building exercise. We work on progressions leading to skills related to gliding, striding, turning, braking, etc. We also encourage you to participate in local club competitions so as to expose you to the real world of skating. You are also ready to take part in skating rallies, street skating or any other skating events.

Advanced Training

All set for championships, aren’t you? You are now in one of the prime league of high level skating where the main focus is developing techniques, increasing aerobic and anaerobic capacities, learning competitive pressure handling and racing strategies, etc. More importantly you now start participating in high level competitions.
