MEDALS WON

Well, we have really stopped counting as long back we lost the count of it. Oh, but we can proudly say that the number of medals won (combined) definitely crosses 1000.

Safety First

What can be more important than the safety of your child. At TSA, 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/Focussed 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.

Ajay Shivlani

It all started more than 25 years ago. , Ajay discovered a toy with wheels which could be attached to feet and rolled along. The sheer idea of being 2 inches above the ground and gliding in the air was enough for him to be wrapped in the magic of skating. Since then, he has been involved in every level and form of skating. Be it, speed, artistic, endurance, adventure, aggressive etc.

It was in 1989, when he realised that speed skating competition was to be held in Bombay and managed to corner the limelight by securing top position in respective age group. What followed was a series of good performances in the local, district, state and all India level competitions. With no formal training in skating he had to find his own methods and means to achieve the performances. Very soon, many younger skating enthusiasts were taking his support to learn the sport of skating.

After winning laurels at higher levels, he wanted to expand his horizons with skating and adventure. The enthusiasm led him to skate Mumbai to Pune- a distance of 175 kilometers in 15 hours. In 1992, this was considered a major task with the Bhor ghats and it's steep slopes of more than 14 kilometers. Only when this task was completed, he realised that what was done was a mamoth task and nobody in India had ever managed to skate such steep slopes combined with a big distance within a day's time.

In 1993, he approached the Guiness Book of World Record to conquer the World's longest distance in shortest time. It was a distance of 1488 kilometers from Land's End to John O'Groats (Southern tip of England to the northern tip of Scotland) in 9days. The Guiness authorities insisted to break the record at the same location and that seemed very out of reach in terms of climate and funds. These constraints led to another development, he decided to leave the World Record and instead concentrate on the National record as registered in the Limca Book of Records-1547 kilometers in 8 days, 10 hours, this was achieved by an Indian in Gujarat by skating within Gujarat state. The intention was to achieve distance in less time by skating within Maharashtra. But the Limca Book authorities insisted that the record must be attempted so as to fix up a pattern to be followed by future contenders. Mumbai to Delhi, a distance of 1600 kilometers via Jaipur-Agra was fixed as the set route. Ajay managed this feat within 8 days covering six states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh,Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi. This became the longest distance in shortest time covered on skates in the whole world, but was registered as a national record in the Limca Book of Records. After the National record, his eyes were yet set to be the best in the World. Adventure with skating was the best combination and what better than the, "Khardungla Pass"-at 18383 feet above sea level is the highest motorable road in the World. Limca Book of Records had a record of skating from Leh to Khardungla in 36 hours.

In, 1996 Ajay skated from Leh to Khardungla in 14 hours 40 minutes. This feat was recorded in Limca Book of Records as a World Record. The Indian Military also honoured Ajay for the same as they believed it to be a real achievement to skate in temperatures less than 0 degrees with hailstorm and ground snow for company and oxygen level less than 30% of Mumbai city. This was it!!!!

    It's been 6 and a half years and now i see my son zip and zoom so smoothly on his inline wheels. I never knew that my 3.5 year old son would become a State Level Gold Medalist. No doubts he has put his best, but I would say that today he is mentally and physically conditioned to take on any champion and there are no two doubts that it is because of the best ever coaches Ajay Sir and Sandeep Sir. Ajay Sir has been very instrumental in helping him learn how to accept defeat gracefully. Thank you Ajay Sir for taking Riyansh to such heights.

    I remember the few words that Ajay sir had quoted “ Every graph has to go down, for it to go up”. I believed in him and thus continued Mihir’s journey on his wheels.

    The knowledge that he shares with my son is intricate yet simplified for his understanding. He is enormously gifted in coaching, and the improvements that my son has displayed in his skating is a clear example of those gifts.

    Learning the proper technique at an early age is vitally important and allows one to skate with a fluid motion while using less energy. I would highly recommend Ajay sir’s “ The Skate Academy” to anyone at any age and at any level. Ajay sir will truly make a difference.

    It has been such an amazing experience for my son Karam to train with Ajay Sir. He has not only got the best skill, technique, timing training but has benefitted from Ajay Sir's mentorship and the entire group of kids and parents is like a family. Going to Virar or Pune together has created a bonding. Ajay Sir is encouraging, pushing and also empathetic of kids academics and rest. As a parent I rarely go to class as I am so sure that my son will be cared for and taught well.

    My daughter Kavya has been skating for about a year and the progress she has made is commendable. Kavya is very passionate about skating and this passion arises from the positivity and perseverance of her coach, Ajay Shivlani. I joined The Skate Academy because I wanted the best training for my daughter. But what I am experiencing is way better than the best!
    Ajay sir recognizes the learning ability of each child and drives them to render their optimal performance with utmost confidence. The Skate Academy is not only led by a record-setter in the field of skating, but his team do absolute justice in bringing out the best from toddlers to advanced skaters and hence keeping the academy simply a class apart from any other!
