Our programme makes skateboarding (more) accessible by:

 

  • Hosting free/subsidised day/weekend/holiday skate camps (at schools, sports centres/skate parks) with coaching and equipment to teach beginner kids to skate (video development)
  • Introducing young people to skatepark etiquette, culture and rules
  • Organising free/subsidised weekly after school skate clubs to keep children progressing and ensure they continue with their interest in the sport
  • Arranging weekly/fortnightly/monthly board and equipment giveaways, auctions and raffles

Did you know....

 

Skateboarding is inaccessible to a number of children and young people due to:

 

  • Lack of appropriate local facilities/space
  • Lack of parental awareness, understanding and support
  • Lack of confidence (skateparks can be quite intimidating places)
  • Lack of instruction, guidance and advice
  • Lack of funds to cover the cost of:
- Equipment (not just board but safety equipment – pads and helmet)
- Transport to/from facility/space

Skateboarding, like many other sports and activities, has many great benefits. However, unlike many other sports and activities, skateboarding can be enjoyed by anyone of any age, gender, religion or race.

 

Children who begin skateboarding at an early age learn to love physical activity and will often enjoy the health benefits of that activity for years to come. Skateboarding is also an ideal cross trainer for other sports such as surfing and snowboarding.
