Try Skating and get Scotland Rolling

The Arc Sports Hall Eliminator

Arc Sports Hall
We love the Arc Sports Hall

We are always looking for new activities to add to the fun of indoor skating. What we do is dependent on the skills of the skaters present at the Arc Sports Centre on Sundays. To-day we have a much wider range of abilities than ever before. TrySkating's mission is to encourage this trend. We want skaters of all levels of ability to skate together. No skater is excluded. 

Recently we introduced the 'Lap Ladder' we are now progressing to the Eliminator our first attempt at skate racing. Five skaters compete against one another over 5 laps. The last skater each lap is eliminated until a winner is left.

The Eliminator is open to any skater who would like to have a go. If you don't fancy trying, don't do it. Skaters will see an improvement in their times as skills and experience give them confidence to go that wee bit faster when they rise to the challenge.

The Eliminator (5 Laps of the full hall)


 

Here's how it works.

#  LAP 1 - Skaters line up at the start for a rolling lap. Slowest skater at the front, fastest skater at the back. (Based on Lap Ladder times.) No overtaking is allowed on this lap. No skater is Eliminated on this lap.

#  LAP 2 - The race starts, overtaking allowed. Last skater over the start line at the end the lap is Eliminated.

#  LAP 3 - As Lap 2, the last skater over the start line at the end of the lap is Eliminated.

#  LAP 4 - As Lap 2, the last skater over the start line at the end of the lap is Eliminated.

#  LAP 5 - First skater over the start line at the end of the lap is the winner.
