Modern Skate Team Questions

Q: How do I get sponsored?
A: We have a summer contest series, MASKS (Michigan Amateur Skate Kontest Series), which crowns the State Champion in Skateboarding, Inline skating and BMX biking. This is where we look at who could possibly be on the Modern Skate Team.

Remember, it's not only how good a skater you are, but how good a person you are in order to get on the team.

No attitudes. Respect others. Mentor those younger and less skilled than you. That's most important.
