Skateboarding enthusiasts looking to hone their skills will soon have another skatepark to choose from when indoor skatepark The Collective opens its doors in Jurong on Nov 12.

Launched by Singapore-based skateboarding company United Skates, the indoor skatepark is aimed at training skateboarders of all levels. It is also intended to create a “better, more connected” skateboarding community, said the company in a press release on Wednesday (Oct 12). 

The Collective, located at 10 Science Centre Rd, #01-05, Singapore 609079, will feature a six-metre-high ceiling, a foam pit for aerial stunts and ramps and obstacles intended for all levels of skaters. 

Skateboarders can also look forward to a three-foot half-bowl and a ten-foot roll-in that leads to a 20-foot by 20-foot foam pit. There will also be street skating elements such as curbs, rail slides and manual pads.

Plans to include a five-foot bowl for intermediate level skaters and “Singapore’s only” indoor 12-foot vert ramp are slated to be completed by the first quarter of 2023.

The Collective will offer skateboard coaching and play host to skate-related events such as competitions, workshops and clinics.

It is also open to other rollersports enthusiasts such as surf skaters and BMX riders to train in or have fun.

United Skates will work with the National Youth Sport Institute and Sport Singapore (SportSG) to develop a “comprehensive Coaching Certification program”. This will provide a pathway for coaching certification from the National Registry of Coaches.

In hopes of training athletes to “world-class levels”, the company added that it will be working with the Singapore RollerSports Federation and SportSG to train Singaporean skateboarders for major games such as the SEA Games, the Asian Games and the Olympics.
