LFA Freestyle Sessions

Lothian Freestyle Academy (LFA), based at Hillend, was conceived in 2021 following the completion of the new jump slope.  

LFA is combining with LSR to make everything it does as seamless as possible, while LFA gets its feet and starts delivering first class freestyle coaching.

The first ever sessions are split into two 4-week blocks on a Friday evening, which run independently of each other.  These sessions are full training sessions but are effectively taster/tester sessions for what LFA will become.

Block 1 - 29th April 2022 till 20th May 2022
Block 2 - 27th May 2022 till 17th June 2022

Booking and further information on these sessions will be out soon!!
