Skate League

Our skate league will build a love for skateboarding with families that have had little to no experience with the sport, as well as provide an opportunity to be challeged for those who have skated for a long time. We emphasize breaking down the basics, encouragment, and developing your own style. You will be able to walk into this league with any no previous experience and walk away with many more skills under your belt, while growing in friendship with others learning alongside of you. 

 

Game Basiscs

  • Contestants join a team with whom they will practice and compete with against other teams of skaters. You can request signup for a specific coach or time slot for practices or teammates, though can't guarantee every request. 
  • During games teams will alternate players taking runs, each player will score as many points for their team as they can with each run they get. The team with the highest score in the end wins.  
  • Every contestant will have 3 runs -  a 1-minute "street run" utilizing non-halfpipe features; a 1-minute "halfpipe-only" run; and a best trick run with 3 attempts.
  • In the best trick run, you can opt to try a different trick after one or two attempts, but if any points were earned by landing one of those attempts, they are forfeited on behalf of the new trick. 
  • Loaner boards and pads will be available during practice times and game times if needed. Helmets are required.

For Parents and Spectators

  • Be a positive presence at the skatepark for all kids, teams and coaches alike. Cheering encouraged!
  • Remain outside of the skatepark boundaries, except when your child is taking their turn, feel free to enter the skatepark for any pictures or videos of them. 
  • Be flexible with times, some games/practices have gone longer or started later because of unexpected delays
  • Be on time or early to games and practices, so that things can be kept on schedule
  • Please address any potential grievances to Ryan or Alec in person or by email, separate from game and practice times
  • Be gracious and understanding when it comes to scoring - We have done extensive development of this game, but no one in the country is doing this. We are forging new ground and as such are guaranteed to have some flaws. We will tirelessly work on these to make this the best possible team and skateboarding experience your family will get to have.
