Active After Schools Activity Nov 2014 - Race  Final DayRun in conjunction with Skate Australia and the Australian Sports Commission, Stephen Hampson, Vice President - Speed of Skate Queensland, President of the Logan City Speed Skating Club at Hillcrest,and Level 1Coach laid the foundations for more Active After-School Communities activities with the running of the first Speed Skating activity for the Marsden State School.

 Greg Fox of the Active After-school Communities was delighted with the outcomes of the activity and commented that he was going to promote the Speed Skating activity to more schools in the region due to its success.

 Stephen had Margaret Retallick, herself a Level 1 Coach and National & Oceania Champion, working closely with Stephen to coach the children from hanging onto a rail to confidentially skating around unassisted. In fact on the last day of the session the children were confident enough to participate in a race from which the winners were awarded Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals.

The Quick Kids Bronze coaching material formed the basis of the after school activity to great success. The National Chair of Speed Skating Officials and World Championship Official, Karen Doyle also attended on the last day and acted as race official to give the children a real feel for what roller speed skating was all about.

Karen commented that the confidence gained in the children in such a short time was fantastic to see. Stephen said that the beaming faces on the children confirmed that they had a great time and the way they progressed was a testimony to its success. Stephen also went on to say that the support from Margaret Retallick assisted greatly in the success of the activity and thanked her for her support.

Stephen said that in the quest to grow the sport of Roller Speed Skating in Queensland he looked forward to more participation from other schools in the region in 2015 and wanted to encourage more children and adults to take up roller speed skating as he said that it is one sport guaranteed to get you fit.
