SHrEdders: The first girls-only clinic in the city! This clinic is for girls ages 6-10 to EDUCATE, EXPOSE, ENCOURAGE and EMPOWER young girls who show an interest in skateboarding. 

• Educate-basic skateboarding skills (balance, stance, turning, tricks)
• Expose- expose girls to the skatepark and its etiquette. This is CRUCIAL as it promotes safety and cohesion between other riders at the park.
• Encourage- Encourage girls to be PROUD of their skill, no matter beginner or advanced, and KNOW they have a place at this park and every other skatepark (which is very male dominated).
• Empower- with these tools, empower girls to be THE role models for the next group of SHrEdders. Pass it forward and recruit new riders to not be intimidated by “good skaters”, or “all the boys”. Skateboarding is a very welcoming and rewarding sport for ALL to enjoy! 

SHrEdders should arrive with a skateboard and helmet. Pads are recommended. A waiver MUST be signed by parent or guardian before class starts and are available onsite. We will have a limited number of helmets available for use during the class.

Ages: 6-10

Cost

$20 per SHrEdder
