Community Projects

Community Involvement Program

The SAV program has been recognized by several schools as a way for students to complete their CIP hours. Several SAV Youths have taken this as their contribution to their CIP requirements. If you would like to convert your hours on skates as part of your CIP fulfillment, you may request for a letter from our head office to seek approval and endorsement from your schools.

 

As an SAV Youth, you can skate the park as a SAV to promote safe skating and park safety for park users, participate as a volunteer in any of our charity events or National Park Safety Campaign sessions, assist in our Saturday Night Skates for the community or any other community event that skateline is involved in. There is no better way for a skater to promote skating as a safe and fun sport and earn CIP credits at the same time.
