About The Texas Skateboarding Club
In Texas, organized team sports are a phenomenon. But, where do kids fit in if they don’t want to play football, basketball, baseball, lacrosse, soccer etc.? In the past they have just been left to their own devices, often struggling to fit in at school and to be “accepted” by their peers. Over the past decade, action sports have become a mainstay favorite among elementary, middle school and high school kids, and the popularity of skateboarding has been on the rise. In recent years, skateboarding has become part of the sport curriculum in some high schools across the nation.
Olympics in 2020! Skateboarding was one of five new sports added to the Olympic program, alongside sport climbing, karate, baseball/softball, and surfing. The 2020 Summer Olympics will take place in Tokoyo from July 24 to August 9.
The Texas Skateboarding Club was founded on the idea that kids should have a choice outside of “traditional” sports. Our primary goal is to provide an outlet for kids to explore their own limitations and hopefully realize there aren’t any. Self confidence is the foundation for success, and skateboarding is a building block in that foundation. Individuality should be embraced, not encumbered. And confidence should be cultivated, not conformed.
Skateboarding is an art form. Whether it’s the clean lines of Shawn White or the technicality of Tony Hawk, there is a place for all styles and interpretations. The Texas Skateboarding Club is a blank canvas where kids of all ages can get together and create something meaningful — building confidence, one trick at a time.
Supervised by professionals, participants will learn what it takes to get back up after they fall down.
