Great Yarmouth has a vast history in roller skating and has produced more national champions as a percentage of population than anywhere else in the country! The loss of facilities, some 20 years ago meant small artistic groups struggled on by using community sports halls, RetroSkate developed from one of these sessions run by North Sea Rollers in May 2009. With a wealth of experience, qualification & passion in artistic roller skating RetroSkate ARSC was then formed in September 2009 with Glenn & Donna Wicks as coaches.
As one of the newest club affiliated to the Federation of Artistic Roller Skating, RetroSkate ARSC in a short time has become the biggest club in the UK! We, as a club believe in the many benefits roller skating brings its participants at all ages & levels in all disciplines including figures, free skating and dance and continue to promote the sport in all aspects.
We are privileged to have had 14 British champions over the last 4 years with our coach Glenn Wicks being appointed British Squad Figure Coach. 2014, 2013 & 2012 were very successful with medal hauls of over 140 per year(!), none of this could be achieved without the skater’s hard work, child & parent dedication and experienced coaches.
Our 2016 Annual Gala Competition will be on the 12th & 13th November!
