Oaklands locals set to contend for regional crown

The Australian Skate Park League (SPL) is coming to Oaklands Skate Park on Saturday the 9th of November for the SA League. This League makes up one part of YMCA’s national pathway program that visits skate parks in QLD, VIC, TAS, NT, WA & NSW. The 9th of November will see skate, scooter and BMX competitions take place at the skate park.

The Oaklands round is an interconnected skate park event 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 1,450 participants ensures the success and longevity of the SPL, further enriching and celebrating skate park user communities.

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

The Oaklands round has been brought to life through a partnership between City of Marion, YMCA SA, Skate Australia and Sports Aus.

Other Major sponsors of the SA League include: Bad Boy Australia, Element, Goliath, Skater Maps, Scooter Hut and Root Industries.
