Join us at South Eveleigh Skate and Scooter Park to attend one of Totem Skate's FREE sessions.

Workshops are focused on inclusion, participation, and confidence-building while incorporating the fundamental movement skills considered to be the building blocks for movement.

Totem Skate believes in having a go, so students are encouraged to go at their own pace under the guidance of our coaches. By combining both the physical and creative elements of skateboarding, Totem gives students the opportunity to try out and practice a wide and unique variety of experiences to build self-esteem in a fun, safe, and supported environment.
