Back in August 2016, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that skateboarding was one of several new sports to be ratified for inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. StreetGamesis delighted to be supporting Skateboard England in developing a distinct coaching development pathway for a sport that is sure to have a growing profile as skaters from across the country look to qualify for TEAM GB in 2020.

New for 2018, the StreetGames Level 1 Award in Coaching Skateboard Sessions is the first and only accredited qualification for skateboard coaches in the UK, increasing opportunities to introduce young people to skateboarding. StreetGames is delighted with the response of the skate community to participation in this coach development programme.  As well as future delivery dates for the course in Pembrokeshire, Wales and Hartlepool, StreetGames has already secured THREE course dates in February/March 2018 which are open to any aspiring skateboard coaches in the UK.  Further details can be found below:
