Video: Rampworx in the Community

By | Charity, Event | No Comments

Rampworx recently teamed up with Claremount Specialist Sports College to deliver a brilliant 6 week health and sports related project and designed to address a range of health issues and behaviours that they were particularly vulnerable to; including poor diet, obesity, lack of exercise.

setting up ramps

Claremount School, which is based in Moreton, Wirral works with pupils aged 11-16 with varying learning difficulties, ranging from ADHD, Aspergers and Autism. The purpose of the school is to identify the learning difficulties of each student in order to provide individual education plans to promote and enhance academic, personal and social skills. The curriculum enables students to be prepared for the adult world, encouraging self-sufficiency and confidence to work successfully within society.

This was a great opportunity for Rampworx to get out into the community and impact on the lives on some vulnerable young people. Teachers from Claremount, identified young people to attend the project. Each weekly session consisted of 45-60mins focusing on a specific health theme, such as diet, exercise and water intake. This was then followed by 2 hours of extreme sports coaching which included scooter and BMX with all equipment and ramps provided. A real challenge for some young people was the lack of skills and confidence that they had in participating in the sports that we cater for. Some had never ridden a bike before and others, because of their disability, could not even stand on a scooter. However, after a few sessions every single pupil had made real progress with their motor skills, confidence and health behaviours. Rewards and incentives were given to pupils who made particular effort with stickers, hats, and wrist bands.

Each child was individually assessed prior to, during and at the end of the project to evaluate how they have improved their knowledge, health, confidence and other personal skills over the course of the project. This included height, weight, diet and medication, if appropriate. On a weekly basis, we recorded activity levels, eating habits, water intake and the reduction of junk food and increase of healthy foods. There were weekly presentations and practical sessions hosted by the teachers at Claremont who did some great work in educating and encouraging the young people to eat and drink more healthily whilst improving their activity levels.

The final session took place at Rampworx, with 15 school children getting the whole skatepark to themselves. Overall the project was a fantastic success. Over 40 school children accessed the project an gained a whole host of useful skills and knowledge about how to live healthier lives with practical and meaning ways to implement it.

The next Rampworx outreach project is due to start  in the New Year with a group of vulnerable young people in Seacombe, Liscard and Wallasey. We’ll be sure to get of video of that too!

Dialed Scooter Comp Article Void Magazine

By | Event, Feature, Photo | No Comments

The guys over at Void Magazine have put together this sick article about the Dialled Comp we hosted earlier in the year.

On Friday the 9th of May there was a mass migration of almost the entire UK scooter scene and even a few internationals to Rampworx in Liverpool. Dialed has instantly become one of the biggest dates in the scooter calendar and it’s debut event really showed why it is and shall remain to be. Unfortunately the drive up to Liverpool was not nearly as successful as the event itself was; the M5/M6 and how terrible they both were was the main topic of discussion once everyone had finally arrived.

There was an incredible line up of some of Europe’s best riders attending the very first Dialed competition. The likes of Enzo Commeau, Ryan McNamara, Archie Cole, Corey Van Lew, Dakota Schuetz, Lewis Willimas and Soly Bloomfield were all drawn in by the promise of a days competing in on the UK’s biggest and best parks. I’m sure the £1,000 prize money had nothing to do with it at all!

Head on over to there website to check out the full article.

Video: Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline 2014

By | Event, Video | No Comments

As a charity itself Rampworx Skatepark works closely with other organisations across the country to help improve young peoples lives. Last year we invited a charity from Chernobyl that helps give opportunities to young people affected by the Chernobyl Disaster. These young people have never seen a skatepark before let alone use one, so we like to open their eyes to the different types of sports that are out there in the world.

Chernobyl-Rampworx

Rampworx organised a closed coaching session with Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline to give the young people a chance at riding BMX’s, Scooters, Skateboards and Inline Skates for the first time, and they loved it! Sport is such a great way to bring people together from all over the world, even if you don’t speak the same language or have never tried out the sport before.

Each of the young people that attended got to take home a Rampworx Goodie bag full of bits to remind them of their visit to England!
