RU OK day – Freestyle Now school assembly presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

RU OK day is a great initiative that encourages people to meaningfully connect and support those struggling with life through conversation. Its ok to ask someone RU OK, sometimes that’s all it takes to help someone out of a bad situation. We all have got the ability to make a difference if we care to ask, listen, and just regularly look after each other.

Freestyle Now headed to the Waroona school once again to do a school assembly presentation based around RU OK day. It was the fourth time that Freestyle Now has attended the school for such a presentation. Freestyle Now moved the ramps into the undercover location due to the rain and proceeded to roll out the rad with a great positive message.

Freestyle Now can come to your school and bring a great positive message to the students using the medium of bmx, scooter and skateboard radness.

Contact Freestyle Now for more information

Squad members Shaun Jarvis and Tyler Jennings also invited good friend Luke Tooze along to bring the message of positivity to the students during the school assembly presentation. Shaun spoke about the importance looking out for each other, as the signs of depression and mental illness are not always seen like other illnesses and sickness. He also spoke about how it’s the small things that you do that can have a large impact on other people’s lives and you would not know the importance that has played in that person’s life. The presentation was well received by all the students from all the grades. Question time followed after the presentation with the students asking many questions about riding and life in general, which was great to see.

 

Some of the action that went down on the day, the students loved it as you can tell with the amount of noise they were making.

Freestyle Now in the Northwest Australia 2018

Back in June Freestyle Now spent a week in the northwest of Australia to activate several skateparks. Pannawonica, Paraburdoo, Tom Price and Onslow were the target locations. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Ben Thomas invited super skateboard guy Dylan Recce along for the trip to help roll out the rad to all of the locations.

Clockwise from top left – The outback roads are awesome – Tom Price winners are stoked – Jackson was stoked to win some new bars in Paraburdoo – some of the Onslow crew.

Flying into Onslow on the Tuesday morning the first stop was Pannawonica only a few hours drive away. A great session with the local skatepark users, learning new skills and winning some rad prizes, it was a nice fun park to ride for sure. Wednesday morning the 6 hour drive began to Paraburdoo. Driving through the northwest of Australia is beautiful, so much colour and beauty. Arriving at the Parraburdoo skatepark to see lots of skatepark users all keen to get involved in some of the coaching and mini comps. Another fantastic session was had with a long bunnyhop session taking place with Jackson winning a set of Grit scooter handle bars. Jason had moved to Paraburdoo from Mt Isa in Queensland and had remembers the Freestyle Now comps a few years ago that we did in Mt Isa. Thursday morning was a short 1 hour drive to Tom Price. Tom Price park is rad with a good halfpipe. Again in the afternoon we held another skatepark activation session with some skatepark coaching workshops and mini comps. Returning to these skatepark on a regular basis is great when you chat to the riders and they show you their progress they have achieved form the skill development you gave them last time. On Friday after a 5 hour drive Onslow was the next stop. Freestyle Now had been attending Onslow on a semi regular bases over the last few months as part of an ongoing activation session with the community. Friday afternoon was a skatepark coaching session at the awesome Onslow skatepark with the level of skills starting to take hold with the participants. Saturday another activation session took place in the afternoon with a large cache of prizes to be given out. It was great to see the participation level very high with lots of people partaking in multiple disciplines all eager to win some of the rad prizes. Sunday morning was our final session with some more skills being taught and shown to the skatepark participants. Roll on Monday morning and it was the flight out of Onslow to return to Perth. Seven days in the north west was a rad time. Lots of skatepark participants got to win some rad prizes, get autographs and learn new skills, a great success. We would like to thank the Shire of Ashburton, BHP for their support and to all of the people who came to the skateparks to hang out and engage. Check the video below of the trip to know what took place and how the radness was rolled out.

Freestyle Now – Comet Bay College – school assembly presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

When you put in the effort you get to see the reward.

Ben Thomas and Dylan Schmidt put in the effort to get this double flair for the year 9’s at Comet Bay College.

Freestyle Now was invited to attend the Comet Bay College and host a school assembly presentation. The focus of the presentation was “E for effort” Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Dylan Schmidt and Ben Thomas and recruits squad member Karee Funeyvall were also joined by good friend Brendon Cross to show the students how putting in effort into your life can give you positive rewards. Being involved in BMX, Scooter and skateboarding required you to put in effort to learn new tricks. Sometimes these tricks can be an easy learn and not requiring too much effort and sometimes the tricks require so much effort to reach the goal of achievement. Landing a new trick after putting in so much effort is an amazing feeling. Learning new tricks and putting in effort is the same principle in all parts of your life. If you want something you need to put in the effort to get the reward.

Freestyle Now did four sessions, each to the years 7, 8, 9 and 10. During the school assembly presentation Freestyle Now performed lots of different BMX, scooter and skateboard tricks on the portable Freestyle Now ramps. Then at the mid way point Shaun Jarvis spoke to the students about how putting in effort give you the rewards you are seeking. Shaun also spoke about how putting effort into being kind has lots of positive effects to help have a kinder more accepting world. Some people don’t put effort into relating to other people which is a shame. Treating others with courtesy and respect also take effort. The students were encouraged to ask questions, with Shaun and the other Freestyle Now riders giving back some great answers on why they got into skateboarding, scooters and BMX. After discussion time it was back to rolling out the rad and letting the students see how putting in the effort in gets you the rewards you are seeking.

During the day there was a free period after lunch where a select number of students got to interact with the Freestyle now riders in a more personal way, hanging out, talking about life experience and how their efforts have given them rewards like contest success, international travel and great life memories. Positive role models with a positive message.

If you would like this type school presentation at your school please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements.

The Freestyle Now team came to Comet Bay College to present at our Year Group Assemblies, doing both a stunt show and a presentation.  Their presentation tapped into the school’s key message for Term 2, ‘E for Effort’, and the professional BMX, skateboard and scooter riders showcased many impressive skills to students.  Shaun Jarvis did an excellent job of connecting with and engaging our students. We appreciated Freestyle Now’s flexibility, professionalism and ability to deliver a key school message in a fresh and unique way.  The Freestyle Now team were also more than willing to talk with students during recess and lunch, and feedback from both staff and students about the event was overwhelmingly positive.  All students left the presentation with the message that working hard, whilst considering others, is the key to achieving dreams.
