The world’s best skateboarding talent will be on show at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and Campbelltown City Council is doing its bit to not only foster new talent for future international events, but to provide a bit of fun for skate enthusiasts of all ages.
Council, in partnership with Totem Skate School, will continue its popular skate clinic series, hosting monthly events across the city’s three skate parks over the next year.
The popular workshops provide the chance for participants to learn from skateboarding professionals, helping them to brush up on their skills, learn new tricks and meet new friends.
Loads of prizes, including t-shirts, hats, shoes and stickers are up for grabs to encourage participants to show off their new skills, or for the more advanced, their awesome tricks.
It’s a lot of fun and the workshops are free – with residents of any age and skill level encouraged to come along.
The next free clinic is coming up on Saturday, October 15 at Macquarie Fields Skate Park from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
Helmets and boards are supplied.
While all ages are welcome to attend, parental permission is required for young people under 18 and registration forms are required to participate. Supervision is required for younger children.
