Female Refugee Skateboarding

Female Refugee Skateboarding

Working alongside Wycombe Refugee Partenership, and as part of our Premier League Kicks provision, we are delighted and excited to be delivering our new skateboarding sessions, aimed at female refugees within High Wycombe and the surrounding areas.

The aim of the project is to bring young females together in a relaxed and fun environment and allow them to try a sport that they may not have previously had the opportunity to get involved in. WW Foundation recognise that the sessions will allow the participants to build new friendships, realise the physical benefits that skateboarding can facilitate, and improve the girl’s confidence and resilience with regards to trying new (and somewhat tricky to perfect) activities.

Sessions are led by a professional skateboarding coach from Skateboard Academy UK and all equipment, including pads and helmets are provided free of charge.

If you or someone you know is part of the local refugee community, female and aged between 11-18 years old, come try something new and show us your best kickflip or Tre flip!

Sessions take place on Wednesday evenings, 5-6pm at Millbrook School. For more information please contact Luke Godfrey at luke.godfrey@wwfc.com.
