Ramp School Term Coaching

8x Week Term Based Programs

Courses available for Skate, Scooters & BMX

Scooters - Tue 5pm  /  Skateboards - Wed 5pm  /  BMX - Thu 5pm

Ramp School Coaching is designed for riders & skaters who are keen to progress their skills - and are willing to put in consistent practice.  As an 8x week program, our coaches will work with the group each week to build on their skills and make consistent improvements.  At the start of each Term, the coach will help the group set personal goals, and then work our way towards them.

The major benefit in our Ramp School programs is learning with consistency - building on each skill week to week helps them to "stick" - and before long, things that were once hard become second nature.  Each week, the group will focus on a different skill aspect or skate park area - plus have some time for games & challenges.

Each 8 week program includes:

  • Warm up and stretching to prevent injury
  • Skate Park Safety and Etiquette
  • Individual skill assessments & goal setting
  • Beginner to Intermediate park skills - using ramps, bowls etc
  • Beginner to Intermediate tricks & combos
  • End of Term Progression Sessions (Coming Soon).

Courses are $199.95 p/term

RampFest Coaching Method

At RampFest, our coaching programs focus on the development of fundamental skills.  We believe that building strong basic skills is more important to long term enjoyment and participation in Action Sports than simply learning more tricks.  

We believe this principle to hold true regardless of the sport (Skateboarding, Scooters, BMX), and this is how we structure our programs and train our coaches.  For a more detailed look at this principle in action, check out this article "Basics First - Why we teach tricks last at our Coaching Clinics"

Progression Guides 

To support our coaching programs, we’re in the process of developing our own Progression Guides for each sport.  The purpose of these is to give young riders and skaters a framework for the skills they should learn and master before they move on.  Our progression Guides for each sport are built around developing fundamental skills, and each "level" will have a skill-based test for students before moving on to the next set of skills.

Check out this article explaining our Progression Guides in more detail.

We're also planning to launch "Progression Session" events in 2020.  Similar to a "Grading" event in Martial Arts or Gymnastics, these events will give individuals the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and have their personal progress rewarded.  These events will be about personal improvement - not competition with others.  We want to create a supportive and encouraging environment for kids to achieve their goals - while supporting others to do the same.

We'll be releasing more information about "Progression Session" Events Soon.  To stay in the loop, please make sure you sign up for our newsletter below.
