Thank you so much for contacting Askate regarding the September 8th Askate event in Tampa, FL!
Below is some important information for you to read regarding the day events and what to expect! Please take the time to read the information below in length and contact us if you have any questions!! We appreciate your reaching out to us and helping make this event possible!
We will have a check in for volunteers the day of.
If you are unable to attend, please let us know so we can fill your spot! Without the proper amount of volunteers we will not have enough people working with the kids.
PLEASE BRING YOUR SKATEBOARD AND A HELMET IF YOU HAVE ONE!
About 40 of Our Skate Volunteers will Skate with the Children for 1 hour at 11AM… and the 2nd half of Volunteers will skate with the children at 12:30pm!
What to expect: You will be guiding, assisting, making sure the kids have fun and are safe on the board! Some children are Non-Verbal, so patience is key! Some Children will be afraid, again... patience and compassion is very important! The goal is to show these children an amazing time for their hour… Remember, their parents are watching and this is just as exciting and important to them as it is the children!
There may be children with food allergies attending which you will be able to recognize by a sticker indicator that we will put on the back of their shirts. We will show and tell you more info in detail the day of the event!
NON-SKATE VOLUNTEERS: We have numerous areas of need for non-skate volunteers!(registration, fitting helmets, managing drink and food table!)
We look forward to meeting you, and appreciate the time you are willing to dedicate to helping these amazing children! If you have any other questions, or know of any other volunteers who may be interested
Skateboarding is known to "heal the soul" but for our special kids it is so much more! Skateboarding offers nearly every component of Occupational Therapy believe it or not focusing on motor, vestibular, and proprioceptive skills. In addition our program allows these children to be social on their own terms.
We teach the children how to skateboard and teach the parents how to incorporate skateboarding into the lives of their families.
10:15am - 2:00pm CDT
