Beginner 1 Session

The Stix Skate Academy starts new skaters off in the “Beginner 1” course which teaches the fundamentals of skateboarding through (6) once-a-week classes.  During the one hour long class sessions, students get instruction on proper use of safety equipment, and warm up with stretching exercises before learning how to skateboard each day.  Beginners then learn skateboarding techniques like how to balance on the board, pedal (or push) the board to move, then how to skate basic obstacles like riding through cone obstacle courses and on a small bank.
Students will be assessed and allowed to participate in one of the various skills taught that day.  This allows students to advance their individual skill level regardless of how fast others in the class progress.  After all, skateboarding is not a team sport.  This makes skateboarding ideal for many kids who may not have as much fun in team sports.
Besides learning how to skate, students will take part in the camaraderie that skateboarding as a community has to offer fellow skaters.  They also learn skills like perseverance while trying tricks that may take many attempts to land.  These are valuable skills for everyone to learn.  

Beginner 2 Session

“Beginner 2” is the second course offered by the Stix Skate Academy, which builds upon the fundamental riding techniques taught in the “Beginner 1” section.  This guides students to do more advanced riding maneuvers and even do basic tricks.  Other things taught in this section include how to skate within your abilities, and students are given knowledge of skatepark etiquette. This includes things like how to wait your turn while skating with others on the same obstacle.

Intermediate Sessions


After graduating from the beginner courses, students are able to enroll in intermediate sessions.  More individualized instruction during these classes allows students to build upon their strengths and work on improving their weaknesses.  It will also guide students in the direction they want to go with skateboarding whether they want to skate street, vert, or just cruise down the sidewalk to school on a mini cruiser board.  
Upon completion of the intermediate courses, riders will be encouraged to try ridiong in public skateparks. This will allow them to challenge themselves by doing tricks on obstacles to build on their skateboarding skills.  Individual one-on-one skate lessons are available for advanced riders upon request.
Learning how to skateboard through the Stix Skate Academy allows riders to begin developing their unique style as well as learn the fundamentals of skateboarding.  Students of all shapes and sizes are welcome.
