Starting July 5th until August 26th The Winnipeg Skateboarding Outreach Organization, in conjunction with Sk8 Skates, will be hosting free skateboard lessons for beginners at the Plaza at the Forks Skatepark. The lessons will run Wednesday - Sunday from 11:30 AM - 2 PM. It is mandatory that participants bring a helmet, but skateboards are available for use.
Each participant (or their legal guardian if under the age of 18) will be required to sign a waiver at the Plaza at The Forks Skatepark between 11 AM – 11:30 AM, and then they will be teamed up with their instructor. If you already have a waiver filled out from a previous session, you are still required to go to sign in at the skatepark between 11:00 - 11:30 AM. Space is limited and is first-come, first-serve. If you, or somebody you know is interested in taking up skateboarding, this is a perfect opportunity to see if it is right for you!
