Skateboarding WA are dropping-in for another two workshops as part of a series running at skate parks in the City of Armadale in October.

Coaches will be available at the free sessions to assist young people in learning the basics or landing that next trick and will be running jams and games of S.K.A.T.E.

Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones OAM, JP said young people who missed the opportunity to attend the workshop in September, or simply want to have another go, are encouraged to attend.

“Skateboarding is a great way for our young people to get outdoors, meet people from their community and build their skills and abilities, and the workshops are open to all ages and skill levels.

“It’s a great opportunity for young skate enthusiasts to get some helpful tips from the professionals who have been competing for years.

“We are fortunate to have three skate park locations in the City which provide a social and active space for young people and opens new horizons through programs such as Skateboarding WA.”

Grab your mates and head down to the Forrestdale Skate Park on Thursday 26 October from 4 to 7pm, and on Saturday 28 October from 2 to 5pm at the Roleystone Skate Park.

Skateboards and helmets are provided. A registration form is required before participation, and young people under the age of 18 years require a parent or guardian to sign.
