One to one skateboarding tuition, group tuition, after school workshops and skate camps
Indoor and outdoor skate trips; learner video premiers and skateboarding competitions.
We are dedicated to sharing our experience of learning to skate with young people who fear they lack the resources, ability or confidence.
Our programme makes skateboarding (more) accessible by:
Providing free/subsidised (minibus) transport to appropriate space/skate park
Hosting free/subsidised day/weekend/holiday skate camps (at schools, sports centres/skate parks) with tuition 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 kids progressing and ensure they continue with their interest in the sport
Arranging weekly/fortnightly/monthly board and equipment giveaways
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
Benefits of skateboarding
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.
