Adaptive Skateboard Championship Series including the Shoe City Invitational at summer X Games!

AAS Initiates A.S.C.S.

This Spring, 2012, Adaptive Action Sports initiates A.S.C.S (Adaptive Skateboard Championship Series), a championship series of open competitions for intermediate and advanced skateboarders with disabilities. The 6-event series provides adaptive skateboarders, whose numbers have escalated in the past few years, an opportunity to compete for cash and prize purses on an established, annual basis. The competitions will be open to stand-up and sit-down athletes.

In 2012, four A.S.C.S. competitions will be held. Each will be preceded by a three-day AAS Pipeline learn-to-skate clinic, attendance at which is optional for competition participants.

AAS hopes to include the already existing event at Extremity Games at New Braunfels, TX, as an official stop. Additional tentative stops include the Shoe City Invitational at Summer X Games in Los Angeles, the Coco Beach Skatepark in Florida, the Berrics Skatepark in Los Angeles, Element YMCA Skate Camp and in Vancouver BC with 9 Lives Adventures. The 2012 season will act as a qualifier for the 2013 X Games component of the A.S.C.S.

After AAS’ incredibly successful Shoe City Invitational, held in last July at the Summer X Games 17 with a cash and prize purse of over $3000.00, AAS will strive to create a similar rewards package at each 2012 stop of A.S.C.S.

Please consider supporting the A.S.C.S. It is going to kick A.A.S.!!!
