Skateboard summer camps 2019

(July and August 2019)

Summer 2019 skateboard summer camps

Minimum age required: 8 years old.  No exception

From Monday to Friday:  9h30 - 11h30

Camps are open to kids, teens and young adults of all levels provided they are in good physical condition.
Students count is split between several small groups of 5 at most and of similar level and age.

Meeting place and location of classes: by default: in front of the "buvette" du skatepark de Plainpalais.
In case of bad weather, we will take the kids to a nearby school covered playground for flat training (skate practice without ramps)

If it gets too hot and based on the team's desires, we might organise some classes at Wilson skatepark and even street sessions.

We will close the week on Friday with a lunch / barbecue (we provide the meat and drinks, you are welcome to bring fruits, cut veggies etc..). Students, parents and friends invited.  

Drinks and snacks:

Plainpalais: free sirop during breaks.  Snacks can be purchased at a reasonable price on site.
Outings: please plan to take with you water and snacks.

Helmets and protections:

Helmets are absolutely MANDATORY.  The student will not be able to participate to any given class without a helmet.  Course will not be reimbursed.
We strongly recommend the use of protections for knees, elbows and wrists.
They are available in major sport shops and at our partners': 242 shop and Tranzport

We have a few skateboards to lend (please reserve yours upon registration). The student will have to return the board in good condition on Friday.

Don't forget sunscreen every morning!
