Who will be the next Central Coast Series Champion?
Central Coast Council will host three heats across three different venues where young riders can enter in one or all competitions for a chance to claim the Central Coast Series Champion title.
Rather than competing in a final, this year's Champion and division winners will be determined by an accumulative tally across all three heats.
Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said the competition for riders aged 5-24 has grown in popularity each year.
"Originally, the Series was held during Youth Week to activate our skate parks and now it's held across the Coast over three months, giving more opportunities to our young riders," Ms Vaughan said.
"As the competition grows, so does the prize money and the number of competitors."
The event is aimed at beginner, intermediate and sponsored riders, so provides an opportunity for young people of all skill levels to participate and compete.
This year the Central Coast Series will be held at:
- Heat 1, Drop in at Dalbs - Wadalba Skate Park, Saturday 22 February
- Heat 2, Uminafied - Umina Skate Park, Saturday 7 March
- Heat 3, Beast of the Bowl - BATO Yard, Saturday 4 April
Entry is open to all riders aged 5-24 years in skate, scooter and BMX as well as WCMX Wheelchair (BATO only). The age divisions include:
- under 12 years
- under 16 years
- open females
- open males
- sponsored riders.
Mayor Lisa Matthews said the Central Coast Series showcases the talent of the Coast's young riders and highlights the quality of our outdoor spaces.
"We have an incredibly strong local skate scene and competitions such as these provide opportunities not only for the riders but for residents to go outdoors, support our young people and celebrate community life," Mayor Matthews said.
"I encourage young riders to register for the competition and urge spectators to get out there to cheer them on."
Entry is free and open to riders aged 5-24. To register before the day, email or phone 4304 7039.
