Selecting, training, and managing the park staff are critical steps toward operating a well-supervised, safe skate park.
We check the backgrounds of our candidates and carefully screen them for their abilities to relate to and communicate well with people who use the park. They must be able to gain the respect of the kids and enforce the rules without being intimidated or developing adversarial relationships.
Our supervisory personnel are trained in park policies and procedures as well as local health and safety requirements like first aid and CPR.
We also hold seminars with our staffs on conflict resolution and relationship skills for dealing with children and teenagers because we believe this is critical for effective park management.
If they will have any instructional duties, such as conducting classes, clinics, or private lessons, staff members must be familiar with the curriculums and be trained to administer them.
