Private Lessons

SKATEBOARDING IS FOR EVERYONE!

COVID-19 Health & Safety Policy (Updated on September 23, 2021)

  1. When the lesson is indoors, everyone including the instructor, participant, and family members must keep the masks on the entire time.
  2. When the lesson is outside, masks are not required.
  3. With permission from the parent/guardian, at times, there may be physical contact between the instructor and participant when attempting more advanced tricks. For example, when learning to drop-in, the participant may need to hold the instructors hand for the first few attempts.
  4. Instructors have the right to stop all participants from trying a trick that may have a higher risk of getting injured.
  5. When the lesson is outside, participants must bring all equipment (skateboard, pads and helmet). There will be no rentals available. 
    • Please visit our skate shop to get your equipment!
    • Elkins Park & West Philly Indoor Locations Only: we offer a rental of skateboard and safety gear for your first lesson.
  6. If a skater or any other family members feel sick in the slightest way, please cancel or reschedule the lesson.
