Commonwealth Skateboarding

Get rad, stay rad


General Sessions

Every Day | 2PM–8PM — [$7 2-Hours] [$10 All Day]

Our general sessions are free skates open to anyone and everyone of any age or ability. Everyone who skates must sign a waiver, and first-time skaters under 18 must have a legal guardian sign theirs. As per these waivers, minors are required to wear helmets. The shop shares the same hours, so if you need any assistance or gear, we're a doorway away.

Just Kids

Saturdays | 10AM–12PM (Noon) — $7

Our kids-only sessions are for anyone 14 and under. They take place each Saturday morning from 10AM–12:00PM. This is a good opportunity for younger kids and novices to skate Commonwealth without feeling intimidated by some of the older or more advanced skaters.

Parents or legal guardians must be present to sign a waiver for all first-time skaters, but you are not obligated to stick around.

Helmets are mandatory, and any other gear you might need is available to purchase on-site.

Skate Like a Girl Sunday Clinics

Sundays* | 9:30AM–1PM — Free**

Commonwealth works closely with Skate Like A Girl PDX, a non-profit dedicated to teaching women and young girls how to skate while providing a fun & comfortable environment to earn those first bruises.

On the first and second Sunday of each month, Skate Like A Girl conducts skate clinics at Commonwealth. They come in three varieties:

  • Beginners Ages 7 & Under (9:30AM–11AM)
  • Beginners Ages 7 & Up (11:30AM–1PM)
  • Intermediate Youth & All-Levels Adults (10:30AM–12PM)

**Registration is free, but a $10 donation is suggested and goes directly back into the program. See the Sunday Clinics page to see when the next scheduled / available sessions are.
