The Australian Skateboarding League (ASL) is an amateur and professional street skateboarding competition that aims to showcase the best young talent of Australia. The Skate Park Leagues focus on participation, positive role modelling and learning new skills, whereas the ASL aims to provide higher level skateboarders a chance to be seen nationally and compete against the best.
Each year, the ASL will run a state qualifier within states and territories across the country, with the top five skateboarders from each division (12 & Under Male, 14 & Under Female, 16 & Under Male, Open Female, Open Male) being invited to the Australian Skateboarding League National Championship.
The ASL offers prizes and prize money for winners along with international ranking points on The Boardr. In addition, the 2020 ASL National Street Championship awarded World Skate Ranking points to Open Female and Open Male competitors, which will go towards the 2021 (due to COVID19) Tokyo Olympics.
In 2021 the ASL was still able to go ahead despite some uncertainty brought on by COVID-19. State qualifiers were cancelled due to boarder closers and restrictions leading to a full day open qualifier before the final the next day. We look forward to the 2022 ASL however it is still uncertain how this will look.
WORLD SKATE RANKING
The World Skate Ranking is how skateboarders are chosen to represent their country for the Olympic games. The top 2 male and female competitors from each country will be selected for each division, street and park. To qualify they must make the top 20..
The ASL would not be possible without the help of major sponsors each year who support the operations and prize pool for the league.
