La Laguna launches new skate school
La Laguna sports department, within its Deporvida campaign (Sport for Life), has launched a new skate school in the Las Mantecas Techno-logy Park.
Each participant will have to wear their skate with their corresponding protections: helmet, knee pads, elbow pads and wristbands.
The cost of the activity will be 16 euros per month and will have discounts based on income, reaching a “zero” fee for families with fewer resources. The registration period is now open and the procedures can be completed at www.deportelagunero.com.
The activity will continue until June, although the forecast is to have quarterly workshops to respond to the waiting list, including activity in the months of July and August. It is also planned to stop at Carnival, Easter and Christmas.
Councillor for sports and president of the OAD, Idaira Afonso, explains that “from the city council and the OAD we are giving momentum to urban sports. The skatepark of Las Mantecas is being a success, hence the suitability of launching a municipal school, which we are sure will have a great reception. ”
In the case of Las Mantecas, the classes will be taught by Jorge Salazar ‘Coco’. The activity will include tuition for initiation and others for improvement.
