Children with no experience 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 how to push on the board by themselves.
Children with some experience 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.
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.
The lessons will be designed according to the needs/skills of the group.
MANDATORY: bring A SKATEBOARD, A HELMET, wrist guards, knee and elbow pads in a sports bag.
For the safety of your child, all accessories are MANDATORY. PLEASE LABEL ALL CHILDREN’S ACCESSORIES WITH THEIR NAMES.
