About this Event
Thanks to the City of Bayswater. Freestyle Now will be conducting FREE BMX coaching sessions at the Bayswater skatepark.
- Session 1 – 10:00am
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 50 minutes in duration. A 10 minute parent information session conducted in between sessions to help educate parents on skatepark etiquette, understanding of BMX, and safety issues.
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.
Participants are split up into groups based on their skills and or what is required to learn.
All participants would need their own equipment and would also be required to wear a helmet and closed in shoes. Participants with defective BMX may not be able to participate. Our facilitators are not able to make repairs to participants BMX 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.
