Young people are invited to learn some skills on a skateboard or a scooter this half term.
Lichfield District Council’s sports development team is running two days of scootering and skateboarding tuition at Cherry Close Skate Park in Burntwood this June.
The days are aimed at young people aged from 13 to 25 from the area. The first two sessions are on Thursday 1 June and will be for skateboarders. The second two sessions are on Friday 2 June and will be for locals who want to learn some tricks on a scooter.
The two sessions on both days will be split into two age groups, with the 10am to 12noon drop-in class for 13 to 16 year olds, and the 1pm to 3pm drop-in session for 17 to 25 year olds.
Tasmin Turner, Youth Sports Development Officer, said:
“Burntwood’s skate park is a great local resource, and these tuition sessions are a good way to get more young people using it. Whether you’re a beginner or pretty advanced on a scooter or a skateboard, our trainers will teach a whole range of skills and some tricks.”
The council will offer more free skateboarding and scootering tuition days towards the end of the summer holiday, working towards a competition event at the start of September.
