Hi SKATYEOGI Friends!

Dear SKATEYOGI Community,
Following Governor Cuomo's announcement earlier today, we've made a decision to suspend all of our classes and camps as well as to close our shop starting this afternoon March 16 until further notice to help minimize the spread of coronavirus.
If you were scheduled for camp this week, your unused credit will be good for a year. The current class series will resume when we reopen.
In the meantime, our team will be working remotely on projects to make SKATEYOGI even better when we return. We'll keep everyone posted.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented situation. Sending our best wishes to all of you.

It's been a fun filled week of Mid-Winter Break Day Camps! There's been reunions, new friendships and plenty of personal NBDs (never-been-dones). The mild weather has even allowed us to visit the nearby park for some outdoor skate fun.
We keep the camp size small to create a friendly atmosphere where everyone gets to know everyone. Kinda like a tight skate crew as opposed to a giant mob. For that reason the camps do tend to fill up. This past week was sold out a few weeks in advance. Perfect time to plan ahead for upcoming day camps this spring and for our weekly Summer Camp program.
Looking forward to skate camp adventures this Spring and Summer!
What is a Skate Rat?
Chinese Lunar New Year is tomorrow and 2020 is Year of the Rat on the zodiac cycle. Because I can't help but make connections with skateboarding, this made me think instantly of the term "skate rat". Picture someone so dedicated to skating all day that this passion almost consumes them. Clothing ripped and tattered, eating simple, inexpensive food, these skaters put skating over almost everything else. But the pursuit of this eternal moment of bliss is akin to a monk in a cave.
Every skater has had their rat phase. Whether it's idle summer days, endless skate sessions with college friends, or apartments packed with skater roommates, these social situations create the ideal conditions for intense singular focus. Even a skater past their rat phase can find themselves back in the rhythm on a skate trip or even a heavy all day session.
Our classes are a great introduction to learning skate techniques. The day camps and summer camps provide a deeper experience through time and connection. In designing these programs we have recreated ideal versions of our own experiences. Rats for life!
