EDUSKATE

Skateboard Lessons for Schools

GET ROLLING

Eduskate

We work with primary and secondary schools across London and would like to bring skateboarding to your school through our Eduskate project, an all-inclusive teaching program, where all children, no matter their background, are given the opportunity to learn to skate.

Our per term skateboarding program can be taught during PE Lessons and After School Clubs and lasts 1 hour. Skateboard lessons can take place on school premises, skateparks or your local public park.

Lessons are taught by our First Aid qualified, Child Protection in Education and DBS certified instructors.

The Skateboarding Program runs like any other PE lesson or after school club where schools handle all sign ups and provide the skateboard instructor with a register at the start of each term.

The Costs

Our After School Clubs and PE Lessons are bespoke to the needs of each school. We structure costs depending on equipment needed, number of instructors required and your preferred location. For more information please contact us to discuss your specific needs. We would love to hear from you.
