This class is taught in English.

I have been skateboarding for 20+ years, and a sponsored/professional skateboarder for the past 10+ years. As a skateboarding coach, I have taught children across the world, primarily in Canada and Australia for the past 5 years.
In weeks 2-5, there will be homework assigned. In addition to the online course, students will be expected to go out and try/film themselves skateboarding throughout the course. I heavily encourage that parents are the ones facilitating these sessions. Photo/video assignments can be filmed on any device that has a camera - smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc. The videos do not have to be any immaculate quality - I will just need to evaluate the progress of the student. I will be looking specifically at their foot placement and stance on the board.

1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
