Totem Skateboarding is working together with the Campbelltown City Council to bring monthly skateboarding workshops to the area. Totem Skateboarding - based in Sydney - has been working in the community since 2010, using skateboarding as a means to encourage self-esteem in young people. They are a coaching and community events organization with an ongoing schedule of skateboarding events.
Skateboarding has a range of benefits including improving co-ordination, encouraging patience and persistence and providing a full body workout. These skateboarding workshops provide all this, as well as the opportunity for young people to meet others with similar interests - while learning from professional coaches.
The following are the dates and venues for the upcoming workshops in May, June and July:
Saturday 23 May
Venue: Macquarie Fields Skate Park, Victoria Road, Macquarie Fields
The clinics are free of charge, equipment is provided and all ages are welcome. Note, however, that registration forms are required to be submitted before participation, and those under the age of 18 years of age will need parental consent.
For more information on the venues - and to download a copy of the registration form - consult the Campbelltown Council website or email email@example.com.
