About Twin City Skate

Established in 2021, we are a family owned and operated artistic roller skating club operating in Wagga Wagga and Albury-Wodonga. Twin City Skate Club is a member of SkateNSW and coaches lessons according to SkateAUSTRALIA programs and standards.

 

Head coach Bec Wawszkowicz is a former Queensland State competitive artistic roller skater, accredited artistic skating coach and qualified secondary teacher.

 

Our vision is to provide quality and inclusive roller sport experiences for people of all ages and abilities. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to roller skate the way they choose.

 

Our classes include Learn to Skate, Artistic classes, Skate Fit and Roller Dance Jam skating. We run public roller discos in Wagga Wagga throughout the year where you can celebrate your special occasion, and sensory sessions are available for people with diverse needs.

 

In lessons Bec and her team will guide your development and get you moving forward with engaging sessions, and at public sessions you can skate just for fun.

 

Whether you're a child, teenager or adult - complete beginner, or proficient skater, you can skate with us. And whatever your roller skating aspirations are, from rolling along at a disco, or competing at SkateNSW events, Twin City Skate can support you to achieve your goals.

Bec's Story

Bec started roller skating at the Coolangatta rink on the Gold Coast in 1984 at five years old after a friend took her ice skating in Brisbane. Her first memory of classes is being taught backwards cross pulls! Soon after Bec moved to the newly created Wollumbin Skate Club, with coach Ruby Olsen in her hometown of Murwillumbah. She competed in the disciplines of figures and free skating as a Queensland State representative before leaving skating at 15 to pursue the sport of still water rowing, and AMEB Comprehensive Saxophone study and exams.

After not touching her skates in over 20 years, Bec pulled them out in February 2021 during the pandemic for a quad skate evening at her sons' skateboarding school in Wodonga. A snap five-day lockdown in Victoria postponed the event, and having cleaned up her 30-year-old skates, Bec found the local rink in Albury and took herself off for a session.

By April she had formed Twin City Skate Club, and by June they had grown to be the largest roller skating club in NSW.

In her previous life, Bec earned a Bachelor of Education in Secondary English and ESL with first class honours. She has taught in the Queensland and NSW public and private systems, and has Head Teacher experience in Wellbeing and Administration. She was a Level 1 Rowing Coach and Editor of the Literary and Art publication at a school in Sydney.

Bec now lives in Henty. She is married to Kurt and Mum to their three boys, Max, Jude and Vin.

Bec is a strong advocate of mental and physical wellbeing. She is passionate about education and artistic roller skating. Twin City Skate is a dream she never knew she held come true.
