Over the past 15 years West 49 has been one of the biggest supporters of Canadian skateboarding talent and has sold many kids their first “deck”. This summer they continued their plans of being part of that first skateboarding experience for Canadian kids with the launch of their West 49 LRN2SK8 Tour presented by Disney XD.
The West 49 LRN2SK8 Tour presented by Disney XD will be making 30 stops at West 49 locations across Canada (mall parking lots) including a stop here in Brampton, offering an amazing program targeting beginner skaters age 5 and up!
The LRN2SK8 program will provide participants with a full West 49 skateboard experience offering kids a chance to really experience skateboarding in a fully enclosed mobile skatepark that includes the Jones Soda Street Course featuring Element Drop Spot Obstacles.
This program is designed to help youth develop their confidence and skateboard skills and will provide participants with a legitimate skateboard experience in a supervised and safe area.
The ½ day program will include the following elements: mock-classroom lessons where trick description (Tech Deck Trickology 101) and the history of skateboarding will be reviewed, Build-a-Board Workshop learning how to install bearings and apply grip tape and small group lessons aiding in individual progression execution and analysis will be taught with skate-educated seasoned riders providing the lessons.
The day will end with a graduation ceremony and each skateboarder will receive a certificate for participating and completing the program.
This program is FREE to kids aged 5 + across Canada and you can register online at www.WEST49LRN2SK8.com. Each location offers two sessions 10am – 12pm & 1pm – 3pm with free skate being offered at 3pm.
*Helmets are mandatory. Helmets and skateboards will be available for use during the programs.
