This is a new project, around the SkateboardCoach.com website. I’m setting up a social network, where two types of people can register for free on the site: skateboard coaches, and skateboarders themselves. In this way the network can grow two groups that can interact with each other. The coaches can post info, tutorials and tips, and the skaters can browse the material or access it through a mobile device. Coaches can build their own businesses locally, setting up lessons and camps at their local parks, while taking advantage of the collaborative information provided by other coaches.
Members who are skaters can also register as coaches as soon as they have some insights or tips to share. Skaters can also submit videos of themselves for analysis by the resident coaches. Coaches can offer services and have a personal website on the network to advertise their businesses.
This is the basis for the Skateboard Coaches Association – I’m building a group of like-minded skateboard coaches who want to share and collaborate on skate learning. The association will eventually provide insurance and business advice fro skateboard coaches starting their own local businesses.
The Skateboard Coach App will aggregate all the best content from the coaches in the network. Skaters can look up tutorials, get advice on learning specific tricks, and find tips on skateboard skills they want to learn. They can also find coaches worldwide through the directory in the App or on the website.
