Mini Riders takes place from 9-9:50am every Saturday and Sunday at Hunslet’s LS-TEN skatepark.
It’s the perfect place to start for children who are new to wheeled sports, or haven’t visited a skatepark before. Mini Riders sessions are friendly and relaxed family sessions suitable for toddlers to 8 year olds.
A coach is available in session to offer support, encouragement and will even show you a few tricks as inspiration for our mini riders.
Riders are welcome to bring their own equipment, or if you’d like to try something new and borrow a helmet, board, bike or scooter for the session you can do this free of charge. If you’ve never visited the skatepark before don’t forget to complete an online registration before your visit.
