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 James City County to begin major expansion of JCC Rec Park.
Launch Capital Campaigns for each of our park expansions
Host our first Skate Camp at Brown Park in Gloucester (June 17-21)
Host 3 free skate clinics at JCC Rec this summer
CREATING a CULTURE of SERVICE
Each of our events is dedicated to serving a need in our communities.
In 2018 we logged nearly 1000 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.
A significant increase in volunteer engagement is underway for 2019, including monthly 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 free skate clinics at James City County Rec this summer as well as a more involved fee-based camp in Gloucester in June.
how we help
why you should support skateboarding
Skaters like Tony Hawk & Steve Caballero paved the way for skateboarding to ascend from counter-culture to main stream. Skateboarding will make its debut in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo's 2020 Games. New heroes will arise.
Today in Virginia there are nearly 60 public skate parks serving a growing population of skaters. In fact, kids under 9 make up the largest group of skateboarders in the country.
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. Skateboarding builds the discipline required to persevere and succeed in life; to fall down and get back up repeatedly on the way to mastery.
Join us in making Virginia a destination for promising young athletes in a growing sport. Help us create a culture of service. Help us build something unique!
