We love skateboarding here at the City of Fremantle. Skateboarding is a great way for young people to get outdoors, meet people and learn new skills. Skateboarding a great alternative to organised sport, it's a skill you can learn for life and take anywhere. The exercise keeps you fit and the buzz you get from learning something new, gets a lot of good vibes flowing and gets your heart pumping.
There are regular skateboarding clinics, competitions and other showcase events at the Esplanade Youth Plaza. We work with Skateboarding WA to regularly deliver beginner and intermediate clinics. Skateboards and protective equipment will be provided. All registrations for skateboarding events are now online.
Skateboarding - Ladies 13+
Skateboarding is for everyone yet it's traditionally been seen as something that guys get into more. These ladies sessions are for all girls, mums & daughters, non binary and people identifying as female that always wanted to give skateboarding a go. During the clinic, you'll meet plenty of others all keen to learn and provide moral support, tips and a chilled atmosphere to learn in. Skateboards, safety gear and helmets all provided if required.
