Hi All,

It is that time of the year again! I will be hosting Eddy's workshop at my house again this year. If you would like to improve your skating technique and skating speed. Visit Eddy's website at http://skatecentral.com and click on the jumping lady to sign up. The dates for the San Diego clinic are March 15-17.

To help answer the question, "What is covered in the Eddy Matzger Workshop?", I have included a few excerpts from Eddy's website.

Hope to see you there,


The Eddy Matzger Workshop is an intensely participatory, interactive skating experience. Taught by Eddy himself in small groups over the course of a weekend, the workshop is geared for all ages and abilities, and covers inline skating and racing from A to Z.

The weekend workshop scratches your skating animal behind the ears through a combination of chalk talks, group skates, technique games and drills, off-skate exercises, mock stage races, and frame by frame digital video analysis of each skater.

To date, the Eddy Matzger Workshop has tickled hundreds of happy campers. "The time of my life," said one. "I learned more on Saturday morning than in 8 years indoors!" said another.

The following is a sample weekend:

The workshop is a whopping weekend affair, including over 20 hours of Eddy's personal instruction. Whether you're a new skater or a seasoned racer, Eddy spends quality time with each participant every day.
