The United States Skateboard Education Association (USSEA) launched in 2017 to empower people through life-changing skateboard experiences.

Led by a team of passionate lifelong skateboarders, USSEA quickly established itself as one of the leading membership-based resources in the country for skateboarders, educators, and enthusiasts.

Making it easier for people to learn to skateboard.

In 2018, USSEA cemented its place as an innovator of change within the skateboarding community when it launched “Learn To Skateboard Day.” LTS Day is an international event held each May, created to introduce families to skateboarding in a fun, inclusive, and positive environment. 

On LTS Day, beginner skateboarders are provided with an easier and safer way to experience skateboarding, but the event is not just for kids! Parents are also educated in the best ways to teach and support their children through skateboarding. 

With LTS Day, USSEA set a goal to grow the skateboarding community and make it easier for everyone to participate. LTS Day has since been activated in locations across the United States and China, Costa Rica, and Australia.

I heard about Learn to Skateboard Day from my local paper and thought it would be a good reason to get the kids out of the house. I wasn’t expecting the lessons to be so accessible to my kids who came to the event never having stepped on a skateboard. They had so much confidence leaving the event that I had to buy them boards right away so they could keep practicing. It’s really great to see how much this one event did to get my kids off the couch!

The Leader in Skateboard Education

USSEA is the leading organization for skateboard coaches seeking educator certification. The USSEA Certification provides skateboarders with a legitimate path from teaching as a hobby, to a professional skateboard educator. 

USSEA is also the founder of S.K.A.T.E. Safe, an initiative designed to promote safety and respect when skateboarding in public, specifically concerning skatepark etiquette. 

With your support, we can promote all champions of skateboarding by growing their voice and shifting the archetype of thought for how people learn and the facilities they learn to skateboard in.

By supporting USSEA, you are promoting safety not just as an idea, but as a mission that changes the way people approach and view skateboarding altogether.
