Skate Clinic Success 2006

Jacob and Travis - Skate Clinic Certificate

Thanks to everyone that came out and had some fun skateboarding and learned some new tricks. The skateboard clinics again this year were very successful.

This year we saw more and more young skaters, including many six year olds which is the lower limit for the clinics. One of skaters even had his two year old cousin come out and show us what he can do on a skateboard, and to say the least we were all very impressed with his passion for skateboarding and abilities. I should also mention there was increase in the amount of girls that signed up for the clinics this year, which is great to see. One of the girls came out with her brother and the other, Cassidy, started from her first day on her brand new skateboard with the clinic and came back two more weeks after a very successful first week.

Local blogger drops us a line

Thanks to Curtis over at for the mention in his blog. It's always great to hear supportive comments and see supportive actions made from people in our own community.

"To begin with I never was a skateboarder and I probably never will be but that doesn’t deter me from thinking that this group is trying to do something good for the Sault."

To read further hop on over to and look for the August 15th post.
