Coach Across America teamed up this week with Stoked. The two New York City-based organizations reach out to youth across the country and engage them in action sports such as surfing. They hosted an instructional this week at Beach 67 Street. Teenage girls from several parts of the city learned how to surf from professional surfers and instructors. The goal of the event is to raise awareness for the program in hopes of providing full-time coaches to teach surfing in the Rockaways.
According to the groups they need to raise $10,000 in order to provide a full-time coach to girls in the Rockaways. For more information visit www.up2us.org.
