INFORMATION – Freestyle Now will be hosting a skateboard, scooter and BMX coaching jam session. The session will be open to any participants in skateboard, scooter and BMX who would like to increase their skill level and get advice on tricks. There will be mini challenges held during the session with lots of prizes to be given away.
The jam session runs for 3 hours, 6pm – 9pm. Participants can come and go as they please. There is no groups allocated to Freestyle Now coaches in this session. It is an open session in relation to the coaching side. Mini challenges and fun skatepark games are the main focus.
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.
Our facilitators analyze the participant’s 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 equipment may not be able to participate. Our facilitators are not able to make major repairs to participants equipment during the session.
Participants under the age of 6 will be taken on their ability to understand and follow instructions and to control their apparatus.
• Coaching workshops are not suitable for 3 wheeled plastic scooters, street bicycles or mountain bikes – BMX bikes and 2 wheel scooters only!
• Participants must be wearing a helmet
• Please remember to bring some water and wear sunscreen
• Participants must be over the age of 6
• Parents must stay on site if their child is under 12
Freestyle Now coaching workshops are fun, informative and motivational. The squad members let the participants ride at their own level and encourage progression. All our instructors are very easy going and relate to the participants well. Our workshops cover all aspects of the sports, as well as equipment maintenance and personal safety issues.
Freestyle Now hosts many coaching workshop sessions throughout the year for various local governments, community organizations and private companies.
Freestyle Now also can do private individualise coaching lessons.
