Street League Skateboarding is thrilled to announce a partnership with Brian Schaefer and Skatepark of Tampa to form a true qualification system in skateboarding that spans from amateur events all the way to Super Crown.
As a result of the partnership, streetleague.com will serve as the exclusive platform for live streaming of Tampa Pro and Tampa Am.
We will also be collaborating with SPoT in introducing an evolved version of the Damn Am Series as an elite qualifier of amateur skateboarding contests, starting in 2015! This evolved version of the Damn Am Series will qualify the the world’s best amateurs into both the Tampa Am and ultimately, future SLS Pro Opens.
In case you’re wondering, the tried and true run format and contest operations for Tampa Pro and Tampa Am are not changing. Our partnership with SPoT is about preserving and building off what they’ve created, and helping to create more exposure for what they have made in skateboarding.
SPoT’s Tampa Pro and Tampa Am have been the most consistently respected and long-running skateboarding contests that have catapulted countless skateboarders from amateur to professional ranks. This partnership will create a monumental impact in skateboarding that is sure to change the game. We are excited to see what the 2015 season has in store!
