Skateboarding Club

In the autumn of 2019, we launched a skateboarding course for beginners open to girls from Primary 1 to Primary 6. The inspiring instructors from the All Hong Kong Skateboards Association taught the girls the basic skateboarding skills, safety practices and other skateboarding tricks. The response we received was immense, and more overwhelming was the positive attitude of the girls during the 45-minute lesson. Despite the sweat and occasional tears, all the girls left every session with a great sense of achievement.

We believe that skateboarding can build confidence, inner strength as well as increase the students’ perseverance and self-esteem. Although skateboarding might be perceived as an individual sport, learning in a group allows the girls to learn the importance of falling down and getting back up – both physically and mentally – with mutual support.
