Skateboarding is up there as one of the healthiest sports a child can do; fresh air, sunshine, and exercise (and why not throw a little adrenaline in there) - it really doesn't get any better.

But it can be an intimidating, not to mention dangerous environment in the skateparks - especially for young kids just starting out.

But everybody has to start somewhere right?

And that's why we're here.

To create a safe, nurturing learning environment where young kids can learn alongside a group of likeminded frothers that all share the same goal.

Building skills, increasing awareness, growing in confidence - and improving each week.

All in a 100% safe learning environment with our expert instructors breaking down all of the technical, complicated skate jargon, delivering it to your child in a fun, easy to understand format that's super easy for kids to follow.

And don't worry, we know how quickly kids at this age lose concentration and that's why we've structured these squads in a way that's filled with fun, games and excitement throughout.


WHAT TO EXPECT

Each week the kids will be given challenges, drills and instruction to build on the skills they're developing.

With each week building on the last students will learn the right techniques at the right times to develop their skills as fast as possible - building their confidence and awareness in the process.

Over time they'll build up a solid technical skateboarding foundation - something they'll have with them for life.

Understandably different children will be at different levels, which is why we split the squad into groups to make sure everyone is comfortable and safe, as well as challenged throughout.

Our mission - Individualised coaching, in a group environment.

The goal of our after school kids skating squad is to arm your child with the technical skills to skateboard confidently unassisted, have the skills to push, stop, start and ollie - building up their ability to begin taking on the ramps in the skatepark. 

Setting them up for a lifelong love affair with the sport

And once you've moved past the fundamental skill acquisition stage,  you'll be ready to graduate into our Skate Academy (where they'll learn more of the progression side of the sport).

With all of that being said, our biggest goal - above all else - is to empower each child with the confidence to be in the waves, and more importantly instil the love of skateboarding into their lives.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL...

NON JUDGEMENTAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

We understand how it feels to start a whole new sport where you feel self conscious, intimidated, and lack confidence (don’t worry, we’ve been there too).

Which is why we’ve created these squads in the way we have;

Your child will be in a group of kids at the same level in the skating journey, in a nurturing, massively supportive environment throughout.


WHY CHOOSE THE HOUSE OF SKATE?


Structured Progression Roadmap.

WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY...

As a skate school we take pride in doing things a little differently, being daring, and not being afraid to challenge the status quo.

And it's this same thinking that's led us to become the fastest growing skate school in the area.

With structured progression pathways - from absolute beginner, right through to advanced - we have a proven roadmap for all our students to follow that's tried, and battle tested

SMALL COACH TO STUDENT RATIO

Quality, effective coaching can only be done in smaller group environments, which is why we have hard cap's with low student to coach ratios across everything we offer.

Less students per coach equals more one on one time, more individualised tuition, and faster improvements.

Smaller Group Sizes

Skating to Targets

SKATING TO TARGETS

Our mission is to always be taking you to the next step, and that means clear, defined targets for each and every session we teach.

We're not here to just hoot, holla, and lavish praise.

We're here to equip you with the skills and knowledge to take your skating to the next level - every time.

INDIVIDUALISED COACHING IN A GROUP ENVIRONMENT

Whatever your skating level or ability, we always individualise the coaching you receive.

Sure, we cover things in a group environment as well, but we always make sure that each individual is getting bespoke advice unique to them, with clear actionable steps to improve.
