About Us

OnBoard Skate Inc was founded in 2012 by CEO Steve Hodges and partner Janet Sayers to address the needs of a growing number of children and youth today who are being excluded from traditional organised sports because of its hyper competitive culture, its focus on talent identification, and exclusion to the detriment of those less talented, but wanting to participate.
 

Founded on a philosophy of "inclusion for all" , OnBoard Skate offers children and youth an opportunity to participate in a safe, action oriented lifestyle activity where participants of all abilities and skill levels are welcome. 

We guarantee that every person will achieve success, no matter what their athletic ability.
