I know how to skate, why should I take the webinar?

  • Knowing how to skate, and being good at teaching skateboarding are different things. Good teachers know what sequence to teach skills, how to demonstrate and describe the skill effectively, and how to analyze and correct problems the student is having.  
  • By giving beginners (of all ages) a positive learning experience skateboarding, they will have fun and keep skateboarding. By helping advanced beginner and intermediate skaters learn new tricks and progress their skills, they will have more fun and keep skateboarding.  Giving quality skateboard instruction will help grow skateboarding in your community!
