We are expanding. An opportunity has arisen for us to employ a full-time Progression Project Lead, to build & lead the Progression Programme for skateboarding in the UK.

Since the announcement of skateboarding’s inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, SBGB have been creating a plan for building the systems to allow talented skaters to be identified and support provided so they can reach their potential.

SBGB has recently been awarded progression grant funding from UK Sport which will give us the opportunity to support talented skaters. This is a game-changer for the sport and will enable us to work with the skateboarding community to build the foundations of talent and world-class performance programmes that complement the culture of skateboarding
