Street and Bowl Contest March 14th, 2020
Street and Bowl GROM is a skateboarding contest with a focus on our next generation of skateboarders. Southside Skatepark is proud to be able to host an event like this to let all of our new skateboarding families know we are here to support them. We will be running both boys and girls divisions in the following age groups. Nine and under, ten to twelve years old and thirteen to fifteen years old. It is $25 to enter Street GROM and $25 to enter Bowl GROM. These funds support the judging, prize packs and Southside Indoor Skatepark facility that helps make all of this possible.

We will run all divisions girls than boys in the Bowl to start our day and then move on to the Street Course after. Doors open at 11 am Saturday, March 14th for warm-up. We will be launching the contest in the bowl with 9 and Under girls riding first no later then 12:30 pm. The contest format in the bowl will be round-robin jam format in which each rider will be given three runs. Each heat in each age division will be comprised of no more than three riders. We will have three judges on hand scoring between 70 and 100. The three judges’ scores are determined by the overall skateboarding impression made by the skateboarder during their three runs. An average of the three judges’ scores will go on to create each rider’s final score and determine their place overall.
