Contest Info: The Needham High School is one of the first schools in the country to support slalom and to have a student run slalom and longboarding group. We are welcoming all slalomers to the campus again this Saturday May 19th for another push start hybrid slalom skateboard race.

Needham Massachusetts is a suburb of Boston, about 30 minutes from downtown.

Building on the success of last year, this year's race looks to be bigger and better. Support School Skate teams!

The venue is a single lane access road running up the front of the Needham High School Campus. Slight pitch and good pavement. There is plenty of space for parking in the student parking lot adjacent to the race site.

The course will be set the day before or the morning of the race. Expect a fast technial flow hybrid course. New skater friendly so don't be intimidated to come out. It also won't be boring for the professional slalomer in you.
