Groms Skate Coaching has been a premier skateboard coaching support service and offered high-quality coaching services in Far North Queensland since 2012.

The founder Ryan Janda boasts over 20 years of skateboarding experience and has used his passion for the sport to overcome personal challenges and barriers.

Utilizing his lived experiences, he offers coaching services that help youth navigating similar challenges, enhance their skateboarding skills and promote personal growth and resilience.

Janda hosted three skating clinics in Mareeba over the course of March and will be hosting another on 6 May.

“We take pride in our unique supportive framework that not only empowers our participants but also enhances their resilience,” he said.

“We firmly believe that "boards break boundaries" and "rolling with resilience" describes our coaching services.”

The flagship program, Groms Skate Coaching Stomping Grounds, is a free workshop initiative that prioritizes supporting young people in improving their existing skateboarding skills while also offering mentorship and guidance to foster the development of new skills that will serve them well into the future.

Groms also offers opportunities for participants to grow their skills and compete from grass-roots to Olympic level.

“We are dedicated to providing inclusive and supportive coaching services to individuals of all backgrounds and abilities,” Janda said.

“Along with our flagship program, we also work within the NDIS space, supporting persons living with psychosocial impairments to increase their participation within the community through the development of skateboarding skills.

“We recognise that feeling comfortable within one's environment is crucial to personal growth and development.

“Therefore, we take great care to ensure our participants feel supported and valued, building and maintaining relationships that foster a sense of belonging and community.”
