Skate Club FAQ

  1. 1. Jefferson Skate  Club Frequently  Asked  Questions 2015-­‐2016
  2. 2. How  do  I  join? • Get  a  registration  packet  from  Mr.  Clayton • Help  your  parents  completely  fill  out  the  packet.  Some   pages  need  to  be  signed  by  you  also. • Bring  a  check  for  $35  or  do  4  hours  of  volunteer  work. Your  registration  packet  must  be  completed  before   you  attend  any  skate  sessions  or  club  meetings. Registration  Packets  are  online: http://goo.gl/5nE01W
  3. 3. What  are  all  these  organizations? • NMX  (New  Mexico  Xtreme Sports  is  the  group  that  runs   warehouse  508.  They  do  a  lot  of  activities  with  youth  like   snowboarding,  skiiing,  mountain  biking,  rock  climbing  and   more.  They  are  covered  by  the  insurance  of  the  Boy  Scouts. • BSA  (Boy  Scouts  of  America): The  largest  &  oldest  scouting   organization  and  the  insurance  provider  of  NMX. These  organizations  are  not  part  of  APS. Warehouse  508  is  a  youth  community   center  run  by  NMX.  Warehouse  508   has  classes  in  arts,  a  recording  studio,   a  music  venue,  and  an  indoor   skatepark.
  4. 4. Why  do  I  need  to  pay  $35?   Boy  Scouts?  Really?   • Your  $35  covers  your  NMX  &  BSA  membership  for  one   year.  This  means  that  you  are  covered  by  excellent   insurance  if  you  get  hurt  while  participating  in  skate   club  events. • The  Boy  Scouts  have  the  best  insurance.  Think  about  it,   they  take  kids  rock  climbing,  camping,  and  white-­‐water   rafting. • Your  membership  with  the  BSA  is  just  for  the  insurance. • If  you  can’t  afford  the  $35,  you  can  volunteer  at   Jefferson  or  almost  anywhere  for  4  hours  and  NMX  will   sponsor  you.
  5. 5. What  if  I  don’t  have  a  skateboard? • We  are  working  to  get  skateboards  for  club   members  who  can’t  afford  them. • If  you  don’t  have  one,  you  can  borrow  one   from  another  member. • You  don’t  need  to  own  a  skateboard  or  a   helmet,  but  having  your  own  makes  it  easier   to  learn. • NMX  will  give  every  new  member  a  free   helmet!
  6. 6. When  is  it?   • When:  Thursdays,  from  3:15-­‐5:00pm • Where:  We  take  the  #11  or  #5  bus  on  Lomas  down   to  2nd Street  &  Lomas.   • We  then  walk  to  Warehouse  508  (508  1st St  NW). Bring:   Water  bottle   snack  (granola  bar,  apple) deodorant shoes  you  can  skate  in Your  skateboard Bus  fare  ($0.35)
  7. 7. What  can  we  do? • Learn  how  to  skate  (basics,  tricks;  everything!)  in  a  friendly   and  safe  environment. • Have  special  events  at  city  skateparks. • Design  our  own  shirts,  stickers,  and  board  graphics  and  learn   how  to  screen  print  them. • Try  to  get  free  skateboard  stuff  from  skate  companies. • Meet  professional  skateboarders. • Learn  about  skateboard  photography  and  videography. • Learn  how  to  design  and  build  skate  ramps. What  are  your  ideas?
  8. 8. Isn’t  Skateboarding  Dangerous? • Just  like  all  physical  activities,  skateboarding   does  involve  some  dangers. • To  minimize  your  chances  of  getting  hurt: – Avoid  cars.  Getting  hit  by  a  car  can  kill  you. – Wear  safety  gear.  It’s  nice  to  fall  and  get  back  up   pain-­‐free! – Skate  within  your  abilities.  Challenge  yourself   slowly,  don’t  try  to  impress  anyone.  You  are   awesome  and  you  got  nothing  to  prove!
  9. 9. Isn’t  skateboarding  just  for  boys? • No.  Girls  and  women  have  been  skateboarding   since  the  very  beginning.  They  haven’t  gotten   much  respect  or  credit,  but  that  is  changing! Peggy  Oki,  1976 Mimi  Knoop,  2014 Samaria  Brevard,  2015
