TSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to build and improve skate parks in and around Virginia's Historic Triangle; to create a culture of service in the skateboarding community.
We are currently working with both James City County and Gloucester County to begin major expansions of both JCC Rec Park and Brown Park.
*Launch Capital Campaigns for each of our park expansions (JCC and Brown)
*Host our first Skate Camp at Brown Park in Gloucester (June 17-21)
*Host 3 free skate clinics at JCC Rec this summer
Skating is a sport with rising popularity in the last few decades thanks to early breakouts like Tony Hawk and Steve Caballero. It continues today with well- known skaters like Toby Bennett, Ryan Sheckler, & Andrew Reynolds. In 2020, skating will make the Olympics for the first time ever.
But why skating? Really. Quite simply because, as a Dad, I have witnessed no other sport that rivals skating in developing GRIT in its participants. Kids fall. And fall again. They get up and keep going. And keep going. It’s a life skill that one doesn’t learn as well in stick-and-ball sports where team work is of greater importance.
Skateboarding builds the discipline required to persevere and succeed in life; to fall down and get back up repeatedly on the way to mastery.
CREATING a CULTURE of SERVICE
Each of our events is dedicated to serving a need in our communities.
In 2018 we logged hundreds of community service hours in our area including over 50 volunteer hours in park cleanup at JCC Rec, raised several hundred lbs of food for Donation to BREAD for LIFE in Gloucester, and a car load of school supplies for Bethel Elementary in Gloucester as well.
We are planning a significant increase in volunteer engagement in 2019, including a community service activity for our Board of Directors and volunteers.
We are actively and successfully recruiting local skaters who are experienced to mentor, encourage, and lead organized skate camps to help beginner skateboarders build skills quickly & stay with the sport. We will host some clinics at James City County Rec this summer as well as a more involved fee-based camp in Gloucester in June.
