Who Can Skateboard?
We generally recommend kids start at 5 years of age but everyone is different and unique. Our youngest student to date was 2.5 years old. We offer and recommend a free assessment for any child under 5 years old, which is done on an individual basis by our staff. The great thing about skateboarding or scootering is that when kids come to watch, their siblings usually end up trying it themselves – and loving it!
Skateboarding improves balance, co-ordination, strengthens muscles, builds self-confidence, motivation, creativity, self-esteem and encourages friendships. Many parents tell us that their children love skateboarding and scootering, and their performance at school has improved, as well.
