Title: College/University Skate Park Focus Group ?'s
Post by: Hoch on January 16, 2009, 11:12:06 PM
I'm helping organize and run focus groups for a skate park project that I am involved with at Ohio State - just wanted to get all of your thoughts as well.

1.) If a college/university had a skate park and/or programs for action sports would this influence your choice in a school?

2.) How successful do you think a skate park and/or programs for action sports would be on a college/university campus?

3.) What skate parks have you been to that you think were designed well? Why?

Much thanks!

older teens and young adults dont want rigid, limited skate time.
Skate coach for anyone over 12 is just wrong.

get this started for after school @ middle schools and it will be better received.

just make all kinds of schools skate zones, with no risk of being kicked out.

When I was in Middle School and High School, we had surf team, and surf class. Both were PE credits. If they did something like that with skateboarding I would have been stoked. Dont get me wrong, surf team in middle school was the shit. Waking up and surfing every morning before class was definitely a privilege. But If I got to skate for 3rd or 4th period back then, I would have been hella stoked.

If you have a park that does not have fees or helmet and pad rules and is concrete it will make a difference.  It will never be the deciding factor but if a student is choosing between 2 schools and yours has an "open" park you'll probably get picked. 

Also, you might be better off having the university donate (tax deduction) the money for the park to the town and then having the town cover the liability. 

Make sure you use a good builder like dreamland, site deisign, grindline, or breaking ground. 

I personally think dreamland parks are the best.
