Slam Factory offers three coaching experiences for young kids, teenagers and adults to participate in:
1. School Term Courses;
2. 1-on-1 Private Lessons and;
3. School Holiday Camps
Have a read through the different options below, and if you’re unclear about anything, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 02 4355 1557.
1. SKATE, SCOOTER AND BMX SKOOL
Our Skate, Scooter and BMX “Skool” program is a 10-week course that runs in sync with the NSW school term, and operates similarly to the way that swimming lessons do (ie, you come on the same day at the same time each week and stay with the same group of kids and coach). Our Skool program is mainly aimed at young kids who are keen to progress over a long period of time, and make steady advancements to the tricks that they are able to do, expand on their overall skatepark knowledge, and improve on fundamental skills and techniques. All lessons are taught in groups, and are limited to 8 kids per class. We do our best to line kids up with others who are of similar age/skill levels, so that they can feed off each other and make friends at the same time. We also have intermediate and adults only classes, because we believe that anyone who wants to learn how to better themselves at the skatepark should have an avenue to do so!
COST – $180.00 per term, per child OR $160.00 per term for 2+ children (siblings only)
This payment is made upfront at the start of the term. If you happen to miss a lesson, you receive a pass to come and use the skatepark at any time you wish. Slam Factory is also an approved Active Kids provider. If you meet the program’s eligibility criteria (more information at the bottom of this page) you can get $100.00 of your term fees paid for by the NSW Government. The NSW Government issues two Active Kids Vouchers per year to eligible children.
2. 1-ON-1 PRIVATE LESSONS
Private lessons are available most days for skateboarders, scooter riders and BMX riders. A private lesson can be 1-on-1 or you can invite up to three riders to join you to split the cost. During a private lesson you can ask your coach for tips on how to progress quicker or focus on any aspect of riding you choose. Private lessons are a great way to get started or to take your current riding ability to a new level, to keep you motivated and improving.
COST: $30.00 for 30 minutes OR $45.00 for 1 hour
It costs an additional $15.00 per person to be added to a private lesson, and this includes free time to use the skatepark before and after the lesson.
3. SCHOOL HOLIDAY CAMPS
In the school holidays, we run 3-hour “Camps” that are focused towards providing kids with an overall skatepark experience, opposed to simply learning how to do tricks. Each Camp session includes fun skatepark-related games, professional coaching, drills to improve fundamental skills, equipment maintenance sessions, tours underneath our ramps to find out how they are built, and loads more to keep your kids entertained!
COST: $39.95 per child OR $34.95 for 2+ children (siblings and friends)
