Transition Extreme work closely with the local communities and to celebrate the announcement of climbing and skateboarding being added to Tokyo's 2020 Olympics, we want to help find our next Olympians.
The TX team want to raise funds to enable young people to access our centre, its sports and fantastic coaches! We are aiming to raise enough money to fund 25 annual climbing passes, with each young person receiving the initial learn to climb course to get them started. In addition to our climbers, we want to get you all skateboarding too! We have 25 passes to access our unique indoor skatepark, which has been designed with all level of skaters in mind and to get them started, they will also be signed up to a block of beginner lessons.
The 50 particpants will also be kitted out with the necessary equipment to get them started on the pathway to regular physical activity, while having fun!
Working with Police Scotland, local communities and schools, our specialised youth workers have built a fantastic reputation and series of youth projects, as well as a safe alternative environment that has enabled us to make a real difference to improving the lives of young people in Aberdeen City and Shire. By harnessing their energy and channelling them into making positive life changes, we believe that our next Olympian is in our midst!
TX is an exciting space with all the equipment these children will need to try something new, build confidence and develop key skills.
Since we opened we have developed and implemented a number of alternative projects which use extreme sports, art and music to encourage young people to take an active role in their own personal development.
At Transition we aim to:
- Harness the raw energy of young people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire
- Increase participation in sports from childhood to adulthood – engaging those not attracted to conventional sports
- Provide an exciting diversionary facility which supports initiatives to reduce crime, substance abuse and antisocial behaviour
- Engage young people that are disengaged from traditional forms of education, harnessing their raw energy through sport and projecting this towards positive outcomes.
Help Transition Extreme to assist young people to make positive life transitions through sport and creativity.
