Positive Results, Roots SkatePark

 

"There is a lot more to skateboarding than just a board and four wheels. This is not an organized sport. There are not any rules. It can be competitive, It can be an art form and it's naturally atractive to kids. It satisfies every kid's desire to push himself to see if he can do it." Roots SkatePark

Along with the physical rewards gained from skateboarding, there are a number of mental and emotional benefits as well.  Skateboarding naturally teaches kids how to set goals and overcome fears through the organic path of progression that is embedded in the act of
skating.  Overcoming fears and reaching set goals helps to build confidence and self-esteem in kids as they grow and develop.  Factors that can be crucial to future success in school, careers, and life in general.  Skaters learn to take initiative and have ownership in the process of attaining goals on their own as they skateboard.  Skateboarding can help.

Tezra and JR raising funds to develop these skills and habits often found hard to teach in traditional settings. As skaters learn the importance of setting and reaching their own goals, they may also learn the essential habits needed in order to become lifelong learners.

The intrinsic rewards of skateboarding cannot be discounted.  Educators understand that a child’s success in school is heavily influenced by early childhood experiences that form and mold a child’s self-concept.  A child needs to have positively reinforcing experiences that illustrate to them how they can solve problems, attain goals, and have control over the direction their life will take. The concepts that are learned while achieving a skill in skateboarding are just as important as the skill itself.
A young person who has experienced the success of reaching set goals, has developed a strong sense of confidence and self-esteem, and who also can relate and interact positively with others, is going to approach future situations with confidence and an increased chance for success.  The sport of skateboarding when utilized properly can be a
vehicle to enhance a student’s adaptations to any experiences they may encounter in life.

We are always learning, it’s just that we choose to learn things that are interesting to us. A student might have a hard time learning when Rome fell, but he can tell you his favorite quarterback’s number. Why is that? It’s because for learning to stick, it has to be relevant. You have to care about it, and when you do, well, it’s sort of easy!
