Skate Jams are a great opportunity for young people to head down to the local skate park and hang out with Youth Workers in a free supervised session. Participants can BYO their own equipment or can utilise skateboards and helmets provided by Youth Workers on shift. Additional sports equipment, as well as chairs, music and snacks are also provided. 

This is a drop-in style program; thus, no registration is required to attend and is open for all ages to attend.
