Indoor skateboard, BMX and scooter competition to be held in town

An action packed weekend has been planned for skateboarding, BMX and scooter enthusiasts at Incline Industries Indoor Skate and BMX Park.

A fun filled, action packed weekend has been planned for skateboarding, BMX and scooter enthusiasts at Incline Industries Indoor Skate and BMX Park.

Skateboarding and BMX competitions will be held at the park March 5 and 6, with scooter competitions held on March 12.

Registration for all three competitions is on the day of the event at 10 a.m. with a registration fee. Each competition will start at noon.

There will be prizes for those that perform the best in each category.

Prizes will likely be cash, with others being things like a skateboard, skating gear, wheels, stickers or T-shirts from local shops.

Older guys in the community who know about the sport will be there to do the judging.

Depending on how many participants show up, the event may be broken down into further categories such as beginner, intermediate and advanced. This all depends on how many people show up.

Hosting this competition is part of the fun in the industry but it also brings people together said Dan Jensen, manager of the park. It is something fun that has the benefits of exercise

“It gets kids together,” said Jensen. “If they see somebody else doing a new trick that kind of inspires them. It is kind of like having a hockey tournament.This would be the equivalent for this sport.”

These day events will not only be competitive, but they will be fun for the whole family. Children can bring there parents along.

“It is lighthearted family friendly fun,” Jensen said. “We encourage kids to come out with their parents and just hang out.”

As there is a kitchen on site there will be food available each day. This will include anything from coffee to taco in a bag, hamburgers or french fries.

“We don’t boast on cooking a T-bone steak but we can get food in your belly so you don’t have to leave and go down to anywhere else,” Jensen said. You should be able to spend all day here and not need anything else.”

Families are invited to come from out of town from places such as Red Deer, Calgary or Edmonton.

All three event competitions will be held at the park. Incline Industries Indoor Skate and BMX Park is located at 4425-50th Street in Sylvan Lake.
