ASA Skateboard

By Ariel Arsac-Ellison

Happy to announce that skateboarders in the Wednesday advanced class keep progressing.  We are now setting up the bigger ramp and they have all lost the fear of going up and down the ramp.  Most of them are pushing fast enough to go up and down by themselves.  We are now working on a combination of ramps, so they get used to not only one obstacle but several, as soon as they go over one ramp, they must prepare for the next one, much like a skatepark, where they can pick a line and go over all obstacles without stopping.  They are also becoming independent and are attempting new tricks. They are learning to help each other do better, skateboarders such as Jonathan, Zachary and Dennis are always willing to volunteer and help the other kids accomplish their goals.

Please consider registering your kids for the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon, raising awareness and funds for Parkinson’s research. The kids can very well skate one lap around Fiesta Island (4.37 miles).  You may registers HERE.
