We are on for Saturday, October 21. The location of the lesson is now Underpass Skatepark.
For early autumn we will be hosting group lessons every Saturday at the Underpass Skatepark (29 Lower River St, just south of King) from 10-11am, at a cost of $10 per child.
The one-hour lesson is for kids who range from brand-new-to-skateboarding to intermediate, ages 6 to 14. During this time we will get the beginners started on standing on a board, pushing, proper foot-placement, and turning. From there we will learn how to ride up and down small to medium sized ramps, and later, turning and pumping on ramps. As students progress, we will work on more advanced maneuvers, such as ollies, dropping-in, riding off ledges, and other tricks. The lesson is followed by an hour of free time, during which instructors will supervise and further assist participants.
Due to the nature of skateboarding, kids will require one-on-one attention. Everyone learns differently and at different speeds, but a lot of progress can be made with a little bit of practice. During the lesson, every participant will get individual coaching and practice time.
We require that kids bring their own skateboard, helmet, and safety gear. If you have any questions regarding equipment, please contact us.
Drop-ins are allowed but space is limited, so register in advance to secure a spot.
NOTE: Because this is an outdoor program, we are subject to cancellation due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Check this page before arriving for the lesson or call us at 416.617.7454.
