Come & Sk8 ItSo what’s new this year?

  1. It’s going to be bigger and better.
  2. The format’s been changed to fall in line with TAAF regulations. We have TAAF judges, and we’re preparing to host the TAAF Games of Texas in 2014 and 2015.

The competition features four divisions (13 & Under, 14-17, 18 & Up, Girls Only) and three events (Best Trick on Rail/Stairs, Best All-Around Run, Best in Bowl).
