Instructor Ashton Scott of Chapel Hill, right, helps steady student Landen Wright, 9, of Lindale, after he lost his balance learning to drop-in on his skateboard Saturday during Training Day at Noble E. Young Skatepark in Tyler. Training Day was a fundraising event put on by the East Texas Skatepark Association to raise money for repairs to Noble E. Young Skatepark and to help people learn to skateboard. Young skateboarders paid $20 for one-on-one lessons from local coaches from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Basic skills as well as tricks and different riding styles were taught. East Texas Skatepark Association's next event will be a skateboard competition June 27 at noon. Visit www.facebook.com/savenobleskatepark for more information.
