As part of the Forging Unique Skills and Experiences (FUSE) program, PCYC Mt Gravatt conducts FREE skateboarding lessons every month for young people between the ages of 12 to 25 years old.
The skateboarding workshops are held every second Monday and fifth Monday, if there is one for the month, under the expertise of coaches Claudia from Olliesonny. The sessions, which run from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., are open to all skill levels and the coaches also teach new tricks to the more experienced skateboarders.
For the rest of the year, here are the confirmed F.U.S.E. skateboarding workshop schedules at PCYC Mount Gravatt.

Skateboarding may seem hard and dangerous but once you start learning the skills and develop balance, it could be a healthy form of exercise. Skateboarding for hours allows the body to burn tons of calories and strengthen the legs and core.
In older kids, it’s could be a great means for getting around town. In young children, skateboarding builds up confidence as they attempt to master what seemed to be scary in the beginning.
In Australia, some 21 percent of young people engage in skateboarding as a form of recreation, exercise, or sport. It was integrated into the F.U.S.E. program of Brisbane City Council to help the youth learn new skills.
Bookings are required to participate in the skateboarding workshop. Phone 07 3420 4655 for more information.
