SKATEBOARD CAMPS @ THE COMPOUND YYC

 

The Compound is perfect for skateboarders of all abilities, whether it’s your first time on grip tape or you are rolling in on the vert ramps. The Compound, a 7000 sq feet indoor skatepark, is the only one in Calgary! When you combine our friendly, professional coaching staff, unreal features, daily video analysis and endless fun, it’s an experience you will never forget!

A well-respected coaching staff is a staple at the Compound Skate park. Small coach to skater ratios are aimed to benefit each individual skater. The Compound offers coaching for skateboarders of all abilities through innovative training and proven coaching strategies. Our staff work with the skaters on a one-one basis to ensure that their skills are continuously improving.

You will have access to:

Vert walls, transition, ledges, banks, 3’ mini ramp and a 6’ ramp, trampoline and tramp decks.
Yoga studio, for the quieter moments that will be needed by some throughout the day.
