SMUX Skating is an inline skating (also known as roller blading) team in SMU that is open to students who are interested in skating, regardless of your proficiency of the sport!
Our sessions involves a training segment where we will guide and teach our members based on their current level of proficiency. This means that you can still join us even if you have never touched a pair of skates before!
After our training segment, we will typically have an urban segment where skaters who are confident of handling themselves will go out on a short skate to have dinner and then we’ll skate back to school. Our urban locations will vary from week to week.

Nope you do not have to! We have skates of most sizes for rent during each session for FREE. Do note that it is first come first serve based on your indication of whether you will be attending that week’s session.
The answer is no. Most of us start out being totally unable to skate too! We have friendly exco members who are able to guide and teach you to pick up this skill.
Don’t worry! The very first skill we will teach is on how to fall properly and safely. We will provide helmets which are a MUST to wear when you’re on skates. We also provide palm, elbow and knee guards for anyone who requires them. Do note that for all beginners, the palm guard is a must to ensure your own safety.
We have a strict proficiency requirement for urbans as it can be dangerous if you are unaware of what to take note of. We will have progressive training to help you learn the required skills. If you want to join your friends for dinner, fret not! We will have a dinner party that takes public transport to the dinner place to join the rest of them so no one has to be left out!
We have a telegram group where we mingle and post updates of our activities. DM us on Instagram to find out more about it and feel free to ask us any questions!
