Appleton Parks and Recreation is teaming up with NEST (North East Skateboarding Trust) to offer skateboard lessons for the Youth! Nests’s experienced skateboarders (many from Surfin Bird Skate Shop) will provide one hour, age appropriate, skateboarding lessons, while maintaining a fun atmosphere. The art of skateboarding develops muscles, balance and coordination through continued movement and can be done as safely as riding a bike.
Your child’s skateboarding experience will consist of: 1) learning skateboarding skills and tricks and building on those skills; 2) skate-a-long time with our experienced skaters who will provide mentoring and motivation; 3) supervised free skate time with other children. We maintain a ratio of 1 instructor to 6 participants. In the event of inclement weather classes will not be canceled. We would go to the pavilion and use our portable equipment along with showing skateboard videos. Participants must bring their own helmet & skateboard. Many children feel more secure with knee pads & elbow pads.
LOCATION: Telulah Skate Park 1300 E. Newberry St.
