Skateboarding is one of the fastest-growing activities for youth in the world and is a fun way of fighting childhood obesity.
However, the increased popularity of skateboarding has created an unprecedented demand for more skateparks, sound instruction and access to safe opportunities for skating.
Skateboarding: Instruction, Programming, and Park Design provides safe and effective skateboarding instruction and programming – there’s even information on building and managing skateparks!
It is intended as a reference for recreation professionals, physical education teachers, youth programme leaders, after-school activity takers and others interested in teaching skateboarding.
It is also an ideal reference for administrators in public, commercial, or nonprofit recreation settings interested in developing a skateboarding programme or building or managing a skatepark.
