Go Grind


The Chicago Park District has teamed up with Chicago Action Sports to create Go Grind. Go Grind is a series of clinics and-for the first time-camps at some of Chicago’s best skateparks.

The clinics give young people the opportunity to try action sports with the help of expert skateboard and BMX coaches.

All clinics are free and open to young people of all ages. We have very limited equipment, participants are encouraged to bring their own. Both clinics and camps always include contests, and often we feature street and mural artists, as well as DJs.

We are really excited to offer camps this summer! Our camps meet in the afternoon for an entire week. Participants meet from 2pm to 5pm every day for lessons, park and practice time. They gain skills and confidence every day.

Friday’s camp wrap-up feature a classic skate jam with contests and prizes, too. Our selected parks are Piotrowski (July 7-12) and Logan Square Skatepark (August 5-9).

The fee for each camp is $28.00. Again, we have very limited equipment; participants are encouraged to bring their own.
