100% Skate Club's mission is to create and build a welcoming, safe space and community for women, girls, female-identifying and non-binary folks in Calgary. Founded by former competitive skater Erica Jacobs, alongside with Marlene Hielema; co-founder and photographer extraordinaire. They noticed the obvious lack of girls skateboarding in Calgary, a traditionally male-dominated space and decided to seek out like-minded girls and womxn in Calgary. From our 2015 grassroots beginning to becoming a non-profit organization, we are 100% volunteer driven! Our Board of Directors are all passionate about creating an inclusive, fun, supportive and thriving space for females in skateboarding. We are proud to have established ourselves as a diverse, positive, brave and resourceful community. Lead by skaters. We are growing!
About This Cause
100% Skate Clubs goal is to provide role models for the skate community and share the many benefits of our sport including; increased self-esteem, physical health and mental health; reduced anxiety and ability to overcome challenges; skill building and mentorship; friendship, camaraderie and creativity. With a steady increase in participants, we plan to met the needs of our thriving community by offering ongoing skateboarding programs including; weekly skate sessions, skill building clinics, organized special events such as 'What Flamingo: an all girls skate festival' and peer mentorship in a positive and progressive atmosphere. Through ongoing support from our community we have been able to grow 100% Skate Club from a grass roots community initiative to a registered non-profit organization. Additionally, we have introduced liability insurance coverage for each skater, expanded our reach to engage the NE Calgary communities with specific sessions for BIPOC teens & young adults. We are continuing to nourish our 16+ and LGBTQ2S+ skaters, cultivating peer supported skateboarding, mentorship and creating rewarding community volunteer opportunities.
