Do you have special ordering programs for homeschoolers?
Our regular program works just as well for homeschoolers. We recommend that you find a couple of other homeschool families to participate so you will have a small group. The minimum space requirement is 60 x 40. We recommend renting a gym from a local school or Boys and Girls Club, or check with nearby churches to see if you can use their facilities.
Can you provide me with any data on injuries and incidents with the Skate Pass program?
We have not had any reported injuries/incidents since we rolled out nationwide in the fall of 2006. We are in school districts in 36 states, Canada, Germany, Singapore, Burma, and the Dominican Republic. Our curriculum kits include helmets, wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads. The first section of our curriculum addresses safety and skateboarding.
What do you recommend for lice prevention?
There's several ways to protect against lice. We recommend using plastic produce bags from the grocery store. Store managers are usually willing to donate them to schools. The students put them on before they put their helmets on and throw them away after skating. Another method is to buy washable shower caps (from Sally Beauty Supply, etc.). After a day of classes, you can throw them in the washing machine and reuse them the next day. Another simple method, if you have time between classes, is to spray the helmets with disinfectant spray
How do schools using Skate Pass store equipment?
The skateboards interlock to stack on top of one another. You can stack several boards in a small closet space. It's easy to move equipment around if you have the last class of students stack the boards and the first class the next day go one by one to get the boards out.
The pads are a standard consumer construction that should last for years when properly stored. If not properly stored, the pads can rip. It's important to always close the straps so no rough velcro is exposed. It's also very helpful to wrap each pad around it's partner. When the rough side of the velcro is exposed, the black mesh on the inside of the pads sticks to it. The students then pull and stretch the straps to rip the pads off of each other, causing damage to both the straps and the mesh. If you close the straps, this will not happen. Also, a trick with putting the elbow pads on is to always keep the straps closed and to pull it over the hand, up the arm, and into place. The elbow pad straps never have to be undone unless a student needs a better fit.
A good way to store the pads and helmets is to get a new rolling plastic trash can or other plastic bin. The plastic sides help the velcro stay free from sticking and the rolling part makes moving them in and out of closets easy. This also works great for the helmets, but usually with a larger trash can.
