YMCA Action Sports runs youth-led skate programs across Australia.

We run skate parks in partnership with local councils, skateboarding lessons and workshops, as well as professional competitions and events.

YMCA Action Sports works with councils to encourage the use of skate parks and sustainably manage an existing public space, supporting the local economy. We aim to support social, mental and physical activity of local communities, with programs designed to engage young young people with alternative sport and recreational activities. We also run programs to improve access and opportunities to participate in skateboarding. Hear from our girls skateboarding participants in this article.

We engage over 250,000 people each year and our events and program framework is sanctioned by Skate Australia Inc., the recognised national sporting organisation for skateboarding.
