At the Summer Skateboard Program, our goal is for each skater to have fun, learn how to skate in a way that is safe and space-appropriate, and confidently explore what they are capable of. Our experienced instructors use teaching methods that are dynamic, effective, and encouraging. Our program takes places at our indoor training facility, which is outfitted with a great variety of ramps for learning all aspects and styles of skateboarding.
This program is only open to ages 7 – 14.
- Skaters can be signed up for the full day(9 – 4) or a half-day(9 – 12 or 1 – 4), with extended day from 4 – 6 available for those that need it.
- Every session, whether AM or PM, starts with stretching, moves into a lesson, and finishes up with alternate activities and free skate.
- Orientation takes place at the beginning of each week, where skaters get to know each other, participate in a falling clinic, get into instructional groups, and learn about “skatepark etiquette,” the unwritten rules of how to share space in a skatepark.
- Group activities include jumping contests, board assembly clinics, water balloons, and arts and crafts.
