Event Details

Freestyle Now will be conducting FREE beginners skateboard coaching sessions at the Esplanade Youth Plaza (Fremantle skatepark) on the 18th December 2021. Bookings essential, via eventbrite.

Session 1 – Saturday 18th December 9am – 10am
Participants ages 6 to 11
Parent information session – 10:10am – 10:20am

Session 2 – Saturday 18th December 10:30am – 11:30am
participants ages 11 +
The workshop sessions would be open to any participant over the age of 6.

Freestyle Now squad members would be present to offer participants technical advice, trick tips, skill development and skatepark etiquette.

Each coaching workshop session is 60 minutes long with a 10 minute parent information session conducted at between sessions to help educate parents on skatepark etiquette, understanding of skateboards, and safety issues. If you are in the second session be sure to arrive early to catch this important information.

Our facilitators analyze the participants skill level and work from that base and assist with confidence building. Skills can be taught but confidence cannot. It is important to not only just focus on skill building but confidence as well. By using their own skill base as a stepping stone we are able to help them advance. Our instructors speak the participant’s language and speak on their level. Our instructors relay this safety message to our participants and reiterate the importance of helmets and how they can minimize injuries.

All participants would need their own equipment and would also be required to wear a helmet and closed in shoes. Participants with defective skateboards may not be able to participate. Our facilitators may not be able to make repairs to participants skateboards during the coaching session.

Participants under the age of 6 will be taken on their ability to understand and follow instructions and to control their apparatus.
