All Aboard runs inclusive and accessible skateboarding workshops that provide children and young people the opportunity to learn and build skills in skateboarding. Our workshops are led by experienced instructors to create a fun environment that involves games with a social focus.
During an All Aboard session, children and young people build confidence by learning about skate skill development, injury prevention, skate park etiquette and equipment maintenance. Each session generally runs for an hour and can accommodate up to 25 people at a time, from beginners to intermediates.

2. I didn’t book can I still come
Absolutely! Whilst we encourage skaters to book in prior, we welcome anyone who wakes up and decides they want to join on the day. However, to ensure skaters are up to date with the latest information on specific events, it is recommended to book so we can communicate directly with you in the event or postponement or cancellation.

Just a good attitude! No equipment or skating ability required, we provide skateboards and safety gear for everyone participating in All Aboard skateboarding workshops.
4. What happens if my program is cancelled?
Unfortunately, at times we need to cancel a session in the event of extreme weather (Rain, thunderstorms, heat or windy conditions).

5. What qualifications do programs leaders have?
Our friendly and professional team are Skate Australia Accredited and experienced instructors with a wealth of knowledge and skills. All instructors have working with children checks and are first aid certified.
6. Can you come to my local skate park?
The great thing about All Aboard sessions is that they are free! Though this means as a not-for-profit, we rely heavily on grants and council support to make the program happen in local communities. The most helpful thing you could do to get us to your area would be to email your local council that has a skate park and ask them to arrange a session.
7. I noticed instructors taking photos of the session, where can I find these?
We love sharing the progress our skaters make during each session. You can view these the week after the event on our Facebook page.
