Wodonga locals set to contend for regional skate crown

13 Aug, 2019

The Australian Skate Park League (SPL) is coming to Wodonga Skate Park on Sunday, September 8 for the Eastern Regional Series part of the VIC League.

This League makes up one part of YMCA’s national pathway program that visits skate parks in QLD, SA, TAS, NT, WA and NSW.

The September 8 event will see skate, scooter and BMX competitions take place at the skate park.

The Wodonga round are interconnected skate park events that will be held across the region, and will feature Scooter, BMX, and Skateboard competitions.

With the addition of skateboarding to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the series presents as a great opportunity for young skateboard enthusiasts to harness their skill base and progress through a structured national pathway.

In addition to the pathway each regional series of the SPL presents opportunities for young people to gain experiential practical training in skate park event management.

The growing network of more than 1450 participants ensures the success and longevity of the SPL, further enriching and celebrating skate park user communities.

YMCA in conjunction with VSA (Victorian Skateboarding League) and participating LGA’s facilitate more than 100 SPL events a year, making the Australian Skate Park League – the biggest and most established grass roots skateboard, scoot and BMX series in Australia.

The  Wodonga round has been brought to life through a partnership between YMCA VIC, Victorian Skateboarding Association (VSA), Skate Australia and Wodonga Council.

Other major sponsors of the VIC League include Bad Boy Australia, Element, OCD Skate Shop, Goliath, Harsh Protective Gear, Skater Maps, Scooter Hut, Root Industries and Rampfest.
