Reinforcing our Commitment
East Skate is a community of all wheeled sports
East Skate Club was formed in 2020 with the goal of promoting and supporting wheeled sports in East Auckland. We want to offer young people the opportunity and facilities to be active both physically and mentally.
East Skate Club wants to help nurture young talent by connecting parents, skaters, council and businesses all in a single point of focus.
Inline, scooter, skateboarding are all becoming increasingly popular around the world and it’s critical that we create easily accessible spaces within our community for these sports to flourish.
We are dedicated to creating and maintaining skating facilities that our young people, their parents and the community can be proud of.
