Charleston County Parks today announced that an installment of the Grind for Life series will take place at SK8 Charleston this fall. In partnership with The Boardr, the Grind for Life series, a nationally recognized street and bowl skateboarding contest, will be held on October 2nd from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
A portion of entry fees from the event will be donated to the Grind for Life Organization. The Grind for Life Organization is a 501(c)(3) that raises money to assist cancer patients with travel expenses for treatment that are not usually covered by health insurance.
Grind For Life runs on a contest schedule as close to on time as possible. The schedule will begin with practice sessions and an adaptive clinic in the morning, followed by adaptive skating competitions. The rest of the day will feature street skating and bowl competitions in various categories and age groups, followed by awards presentations. Participants are encouraged to arrive on time for their division. Schedule adjustments cannot be made. The full contest schedule can be found online at CharlestonCountyParks.com.
Online pre-registration is $35 and is highly recommended. Pre-registration can be completed online at CharlestonCountyParks.com. On-site registration is $40. First time competitors in a Grind for Life contest are not charged a registration fee. All skaters must complete both a Grind for Life and SK8 Charleston wavier. Participants under 18 must have waivers completed by a parent or legal guardian.
All participants must wear industry standard helmets with securely fastened chinstrap and closed toe shoes at all times. Protective pads are strongly recommended. Children 12 and under must be under the supervision of an adult 18 years of age or older at all times. Smoking, tobacco products of any form, and alcohol are strictly prohibited within SK8 Charleston.
Owned and operated by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission, SK8 Charleston is a regional-sized concrete skate park that spans over 32,000 square feet. The park, which opened in 2017, is located on the neck area of the Charleston peninsula at 1549 Oceanic Street. SK8 Charleston features an intermediate bowl, a pro bowl, a 200-foot-long snake run, and a 300-foot-long street course. The site also features a building offering a small skate shop, restrooms, concessions and seating areas. SK8 Charleston is open each Wednesday through Monday for skating, and on Tuesdays for BMX bikers.
