HELLO, WELCOME :)  We're thrilled that you've found us and, straight up, if you are looking for a class, course or camp which kids LOVE and RAVE about, then our Life Skills & Adventure programs might be IDEAL for your kids. 

Let's face it, raising healthy, happy self-confident kids in today's tech age and without the "village" and community we enjoyed as kids, parents are needing to lean on teachers, mentors and coaches more than ever.

For well over 20 years, thousands of parents have trusted us to coach their kids to develop their focus, motivation and grit, on skateboards!  Understanding that kids jump out of bed and get to class early every week, no wonder that 94% of parents voted that, seeing their kids having fun and enjoying it is most important.     


Life Skills & Adventure classes, courses and camps are play-based learning programs with where active kids aged 6-12 come together to play and learn cool sports and while doing so, coaches help them develop better focus, motivation and grit.  

In the program, students learn to overcome their fears, develop their mindset, learn new skills, make friends AND, become great skaters all while having fun skateboarding with friends. Key areas include;

Kids love the fun and adventure warm-ups. reviewing past skills and learning new ones with their Team Buddies. Coaches use a variety of games, challenges and discussion to make it easy and fun for all types of learners and the lil "Dragons" earn their special Dragon Team T'shirt and Dragons badges as they progress through the course of character and skating skills. Also, Parents get to watch and cheer for them during class and can follow their lil "Dragon's" progress in their personal, "Progress Passbook".  (and so much more!)
