Today, students from Genesse Community Charter School in Rochester, NY, took a field trip to the CRW/California Skateparks’ offices in Carlsbad to learn what goes into the planning, designing and building of a skatepark. The students are studying to plan and develop for (4) possible skateparks in their communities, as well as, help prevent youth crime in the future. Jaxon Steazel, a California Skateparks designer, was here to show them the ropes and give a tour of the Crossroads Skatepark and DC/Monster Vert Ramp. Our future is looking bright!
The integration of skateboarding into school systems as an accepted form of activity is becoming more and more known in schools across the country. Nike funds one such after-school program in a series of dowtown Los Angles schools, which gives kids the option of skateboarding versus traditional team sports. California RampWorks is an advocate of this movement, engineering custom, portable equipment that schools can safely manage and offer for all skill levels. For this project, seven schools received the signature P-Rod, multi-level grind ledges and manuel pads.
