Our aim is to increase mental and physical wellbeing in community members of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Currently our team provides around 20 workshops each month ranging from youth engagement sessions, youth justice programs, school programs, community workshops and event-based coaching.

What will my role be?

As a Longboard Coach, you will be trained in session planning, coaching practices, and participatory leadership principles. After your training period, you will be joining our Head Coach to gain your first experience and put your skills into practice.

  • Highly developed customer service skills

  • Be passionate about longboarding

  • Advanced time management skills

  • Available at least 2-3 hours per week

  • Be a good role model especially in regards to health and safety
