Skate, scooter and BMX competition heat at Umina

The Central Coast Series skate, scooter and BMX competition will return to Umina this March.

The competition run by Central Coast Council has a prize pool valued at more than $10,000.

It will run in three heats with Umina Skate Park set to host heat two on March 7.

Competitors from across the Central Coast and beyond are expected to enter.

Champion and division winners will be decided on their points tally across the three heats.

Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said the competition for riders aged five to 24 had grown in popularity each year.

"Originally, the Series was held during Youth Week to activate our skate parks and now it is held across the Coast over three months, giving more opportunities to our young riders.

"As the competition grows, so does the prize money and the number of competitors," Ms Vaughan said.

The event was allowed for beginner, intermediate and sponsored riders.

A Wheelchair MX competition will be held in heat.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the Series showcased the talent of the Coast's young riders and highlighted the quality of our outdoor spaces.

"We have an incredibly strong local skate scene and competitions such as these provide opportunities not only for the riders but for residents to go outdoors, support our young people and celebrate community life."
