We are an awesome team of BMX and skateboard lovers
Onboard was originally built to offer somewhere safe and challenging for young people to go and practice extreme sports. Amy and Jan came up with the idea while watching their grandchildren ride around on BMX and scooters in a cold warehouse – it would be a legacy to Amy’s father and Jan’s late husband (who had a huge vested interest in youth and youth based projects).
It soon became apparent that further support could be extended to some of Sheffield and South Yorkshire’s most vulnerable young people, as well as the general public, and so Onboard organically grew into the extended family it is today.
We offer an incredibly friendly and supportive environment for riders of all ages and abilities in the evenings, at week-ends and in the holidays. We can arrange a wide range of lessons and group sessions.
We also offer bespoke learning programs and enrichment to young people in schools and care, from primary school through to secondary, covering numerous areas such as bike maintenance, woodwork, engineering, art, and including GCSE English and maths support. Wheel chair bound support is provided.
It is a wonderful environment that is cultivated through riders forming trusting and bonding relationships with staff. We aim to support all young people in reaching their potential … exactly as Mick Hulley did throughout his life with us.
