Calling all young skate stars – test your talent and win a spot at the national SkatePark League finals!

24 Jan 2017 - Media ReleasesYouth

Sydney’s hottest skateboarding, BMX and scooter riding talent are invited to carve up Greenhills Skate Park with their best ollies, 360s and mctwists on Saturday 11 February 2017 as part of the YMCA National SkatePark League NSW State Finals.

Open to anyone aged between 12-25, the event is the culmination of a series of amateur competitions that have been held at skate parks across NSW in recent months.

In addition to cash prizes, the top competitors on the day will win a coveted spot to compete in the national championships in Melbourne in April.

The SkatePark Leagues are inclusive community events, where young people with disability can compete in the Wheelies category and the whole community is encouraged to come along, cheer on the competitors and enjoy the free food, activities and entertainment on offer.

YMCA NSW CEO Leisa Hart said: “Skate leagues have been making headlines in the US for quite a few years and now we’re able to bring the same excitement and opportunities to young people here.

“The SkatePark League competition offers all skaters and riders the chance to test their skills at the highest level. We’re really excited to be involved and to help young people across NSW continue to reach their potential.”

Competition is open to young people aged 12-25 with registration taking place on the day. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

YMCA NSW is proud to be an official partner of the NSW SkatePark League with Sutherland Shire Council.
