Skate Australia is launching a national sports development program called "StreetWise," which will provide access to a new skateboarding program for young people in Caboolture Shire.

The interactive coaching sessions will be led by some of Australia's best freestyle sporting athletes and nationally recognised, accredited coaches.

The StreetWise coaching sessions will be 'dropping in' on Saturdays between June and October at Deception Bay, Morayfield, Woodford and Bribie Island Skate Parks. The first session will be held on 4 June 2005 and to register, contact Tony Starkie on 5495 4650.

StreetWise Coaching Sessions are designed to provide young Australians with the opportunity to get active, stay healthy and enjoy freestyle sports in a fun, safe and well managed environment. Targeting girls and boys aged between 7-13yrs, StreetWise allows the youth of Australia a chance to pursue their sport of choice on a regular basis.

Due to the support of Caboolture Skate Association, Caboolture Shire Council and the State Government (Sport and Recreation Queensland) the cost is just $20. Note that places are strictly on a first in best-dressed basis. Participants of these workshops will also receive 2005 membership with Skate Australia, personal accident insurance coverage, Backpacks, k-zone magazine, stickers and more.

Not only do the participants receive trick tips and coaching advice from the people they read and hear about; they are able to witness their talents first hand while skating the park together. Participants are placed in the coaching sessions according to their ability; these sessions cater for beginner to intermediate and advanced levels. Note that all StreetWise participants are required to wear a helmet at all times.

To register or for more information and venue details, please contact Tony Starkie at Skatebase Skate Shop on 5495 4650.

Skate Australia Inc (SA) is the non-profit national sporting organisation recognised via the Federal Government by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) as the peak body administering the growth and development of all skate sports in Australia.
