2 PM – 5 PM
All girls of all ages and abilities are invited to join in this GRO Skateboard Session.
$7 Park fee.
Modern Skate Park is providing a special rate for all girls during this session that includes the two hour session ($12 value for non members) and all rental protective gear and boards to borrow ($6 value). This is a great price to skate this amazing park.
Even if you don’t know anything about skating, it’s ok. This is the perfect place to start!
** All participants will need to have a completed waiver with Modern Skate Park. If you already skate this park and have a waiver on file, you are good to go. Girls 18 and over can sign the waiver at the event. Girls under 18 will need a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian at the event or bring the signed and notarized waiver to the event.
“It’s awesome to watch these girls progress, find or already have a love for skating and feel like they fit in at a skatepark. Glad to be a part of it and excited on what’s to come.”
– Christiana Smith
Today this little girl came in with a penny board and she wanted to learn how to drop in really bad, she was only 9 and just started and didn’t really know that she would need a real board to do tricks and stuff so I let her use my board and she learned how to drop in. She started on a bank ramp, then 3 foot quarter, then later on a bunch of us girls were skating and she was like “I wanna drop in on that” and pointed at the bigger 5 foot quarter and she went for it and got it.
She progressed faster than anyone I have ever helped, male or female, and she didn’t even own a real board.
She was such an inspiration to me, its crazy that a little girl just starting out can inspire me someone who has been skating for years to be the best I can be. Definitely the highlight of the sesh.
Even if you live in another part of the state or a neighboring state, you are welcome to join this event to skate, network with GRO Riders and learn more about getting a GRO Crew going in your community.
If there are any girls who truly cannot participate due to the fee alone, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
