Weather contingency:

Sk8-Strong will make every effort to ensure the competition takes place as scheduled.  However, since it is an outdoor venue there is the possibility of a weather delay, or even cancellation in an extreme situation.  If the weather will only cause a delay of a couple hours, Sk8-Strong will work to complete the schedule set for that day.  If the weather is severe and prohibits the competition from continuing for the day, it will be resumed the following day with an altered scheduled.


Safety Gear:

*  Certified Skateboarding helmets ARE REQUIRED for all skaters competing in Bowl and Vert.  Knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and other safety gear are strongly encouraged for all skaters competing in the Rocky Mountain Rampage.


Insurance - liability and waivers:

All skaters will need to sign a liability and insurance waiver.  Children under the age of 18 will need to have a parent present, or a person who is at least 21 years of age with Power of Attorney legal responsibility for the minor, for insurance liability reasons there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule.


Concussion Policy:

An athlete who suffers a concussion will not return to compete on the same day if he/she shows any of the following signs or symptoms.  The on-site medical team will make the determination.

  • Loss of consciousness.

  • Confusion as evidenced by disorientation to person, time or place; or inability to respond appropriately to questions.

  • Amnesia as evidenced by a gap in memory for events occurring just prior to the injury; inability to learn and retain new information; or a gap in memory for events that occurred after the injury.

  • Abnormal neurological examination, such as abnormal pupillary response, persistent dizziness or vertigo, or abnormal balance on sideline testing.

  • New and persistent headache, particularly if accompanied by photosensitivity, nausea, vomiting or dizziness.

  • Any other persistent signs or symptoms of concussion.

Once removed for the duration of a practice or competition, the athlete will not be considered for return-to-ride activities until fully asymptomatic (both at rest and after exertion), has a normal neurological examination, normal neuro- psychological testing, and has been cleared to return by medical staff. 

A critical element of managing concussions is candid reporting by athletes of their symptoms following an injury.  Accordingly, athletes are encouraged to be candid with the medical staff, and to fully disclose any signs or symptoms that may be associated with a concussion.


Code of Conduct:

Memorial Skate Park is a drug and alcohol free zone as determined by the City Council and will be enforced at all time by local security and police.

There is a zero-tolerance policy toward obscene language, obscene gestures and violence during the competition, or in the event area.  Depending on the nature of the violation, the offender could be warned, removed from the event, or subject to arrest.
