How we get there

Our SIT 'N' SKATE trainings teach specific skills that children and young people need to be able to move independently in the skate park. This is a playful way for them to improve their wheelchair control. Along the way, they learn how to deal with edges, slopes and curves. This experience makes them fit for everyday life. At the same time, the children and young people learn that even "professionals" have to practice and that not everything works straight away. The trainers, wheelchair users themselves, immediately identify if support is needed and provide targeted assistance. In addition to the training sessions, we have regular meetings for the local wheelchair skating community. These meetings are very important, especially for the parents, as an opportunity for self-help and interaction.
