About this event

Our FREE weekly beginners' skateboarding sessions move to the skatepark at King Edward Park from Saturday 18th of June and will then be there every Saturday for the rest of the summer.

These sessions have been made possible by Sport England and the National Lottery, who have kindly provided a grant from the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Fund. Anyone is welcome ages 7 and up.

You will get a thorough, safe introduction to skateboarding if it's your first time; or we'll work with you to help you progress if you've skated before. We'll be trying out the new Skateboard GB 'Cruiser' Award for beginner skateboarders, so you'll have an opportunity to be one of the first in the UK to complete this foundation level progression award in skateboarding- also for free.

You only need to reserve tickets if you need to borrow a skateboard and helmet. If you have your own kit, you can just turn up without booking. We have x20 helmets and complete skateboards which are free to use. All participants should arrive with appropriate footwear - which includes trainers, gym shoes or plimsolls. Please do not wear sandals (including crocs), flip-flops or other open-toed shoes, or shoes with raised heels or wedges.

All coaches are experienced, with DBS certificates and child safeguarding training. This event is insured through Skate Nottingham's community group membership of Skateboard GB, the National Governing Body for skateboarding.

We will register all participants on arrival and take parents'/carers' contact details. There is no upper age limit - adult beginners are very welcome, as are family groups wanting to get into skateboarding together.
