Free skate workshops to grow local talent

Get your skates on and book quickly to take part in free skateboarding workshops at local skate parks, because places will fill fast.

Council is pleased to assist the delivery of the Revolutions workshop series through its Community Grants program.

The workshops make learning to skateboard fun, safe and easy.

Run by the Australian Skateboarding Community Initiative (ASCI), skilled coaches teach participants vital motor skills for skating and other sports, plus social and team-building skills.

ASCI skate coach, Jake Rowlinson, who grew up in Noosa, says he’s pleased to help aspiring local skaters from regional areas achieve their goals.

“We didn't have these programs in Noosa when I was growing up. With a lot of the younger generation getting into skateboarding it’s great to be able to help them hone their skills,” he said.

“There are 332 skateboarders registered with the Australian Skateboarding Federation living in the Noosa Shire and some of the best skaters in the country have come from Noosa. Hopefully we’ll see many more follow in their footsteps.”

Council’s Community Development Officer Amanda Tie says Council is pleased to support the program through the Community Grants Program.

“With skateboarding being included in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this is an exciting time for skateboarders. Council is pleased to assist,” she says.

Revolutions is about getting kids active and more involved in local sports and activities.

Workshops will be held at local skate parks between now and late September.
