What is Skate Park Leagues?
Skate Park Leagues is a grassroots competition series that offers young people a chance to showcase their skateboard, BMX and scooter skills, whilst promoting positive use of council skate parks and skate park culture. Skate Park Leagues was launched in 2007 in partnership with the Victorian Skateboarding Association as a series of interconnected events in and around Melbourne. Now, Skate Park Leagues runs over 100 events a year across Australia.
The Skate Park Leagues seasons run from 1 January until 31 December each year.
