About This Program:
Beginner Level: Children with no experience, first time on a skateboard. Kids will learn the basics of skateboarding, using the right gear, putting on safety pads, learning how to fall on their pads, learning how to stand on a skateboard, rolling on the skateboard, learning how to turn and possibly push on the board by themselves.
Intermediate Level: Children that have already some experience skateboarding but still need some assistance, they will learn how to properly push on a skateboard, go faster, make turns, learn how to handle more speed, learn how to foot break, control, they will attempt to go up and down on a ramp, and the basics of a ollie. Children attending this class must have already completed a full ASA session and got all the basics prior joining the intermediate level.
Advanced Level: Children that already skate by themselves, push strong enough to go up and down a ramp by themselves. Kids here will practice and get better through a combination of a cone course and ramps. They will learn how to ollie, go up and down on the ramps, kick turn, jump off the ramps, clear gaps, slide and learn a combination of skateboard tricks. Children attending this class must have already completed a full ASA session prior joining the advanced level.
PLEASE LABEL ALL CHILDREN’S ACCESSORIES WITH THEIR NAMES, bring A SKATEBOARD HELMET, wrist guards, knee and elbow pads in a sports bag and place them in the large bin next to the auditorium. For the safety of your child, all accessories are MANDATORY.
