Are you looking to promote the safe use of local skate parks? The Y has developed a new public health protocol and communications plan that is delivered online and in a face to face campaign through the Skate Park leagues (SPL) program.

The SPL is a national grassroots competition series that offers young people who skateboard, BMX and scooter, a chance to showcase their skills whilst promoting positive use of council skate parks and skate park culture.

Is your Council interested in hosting an SPL program in the 2020-2021 financial year? The Y can support your planning through the NSW / ACT Skate Park League pre-booking process.

The Y has developed a new flexible program agreement that allows us to organise programs now without locking hosting partners (councils) into a specific date that may be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
