The Skate Club program is run by YMCA Action Sports at skate parks across Australia.

Sessions are for individuals

Skate Club sessions are primarily for individuals who want to learn to skate as part of a wider group (as opposed to private lessons offered at each of our skate parks). If you're a school or group, go to our workshops page.

The program

Skate Club is a supervised skateboarding 10 week program, where we focus on young people's personal progression and having fun. We provide a supportive learning environment with a social focus. No whistles, no uniforms - it's a group mentoring program, rather than a lesson.

During Skate Club sessions, young people aged six to 12 build confidence by improving their skateboarding skills shared during our sessions - from balance, to agility, coordination and technique.

Each session lasts one hour and our coaches work with up to eight Skate Club members at a time.

The program is broken into three different skill levels, ranging from beginner to intermediate:

  • Level 1 – The Grommet: Covers the basics around footwork, street and transition skills
  • Level 2 – Junior Roller: Continues into intermediate skills of footwork, street and transition skateboarding and skateboarding culture
  • Level 3 – Shredder: Covers intermediate street, transition skateboarding skills and skateboarding culture

Coaches

Our friendly and professional staff are experienced instructors with a wealth of knowledge and experience. All instructors have working with children checks and are first aid certified.
