The Alliance - Girls Skateboard League

The Action Sports Alliance

The Action Sports Alliance - What Is It?

The Alliance is a group of female skateboarders and other action sports athletes who have joined together to encourage more girls to get involved in action sports. They've organized several demos and skate comps for female skateboarders and helped professional female skateboarders earn more money at skateboarding competitions.

The Action Sports Alliance - Who Is It?

The Action Sports Alliance includes most of the big names in female skateboarding including Cara Beth Burnside, Lyn Z Adams Hawkins, Vanessa Torres and Jen O'Brien. The group helped double the prize money girls received at X Games 12 in 2006 and increased the amount of television coverage female skateboarding gets. They figure that if there is more girls skateboarding on TV, more girls will want to skateboard and more parents will be willing to buy skate gear for girls. The Action Sports Alliance are also trying to get the organizers of the Dew Action Sports Tour to open the skateboarding, motocross and BMX events to female competitors.

The Action Sports Alliance - How Can You Join?

You can help increase opportunities for female skateboarding by joining the Action Sports Alliance. You'll get a T-shirt, skate DVD and a chance to enter contests to win cool skate gear. For more info on the Action Sports Alliance, head to www.actionsportsalliance.com.

    Talk about your experiences on your journey to making it to the NBA if you share this dream, and how it is coming along from the beginning to now. I can offer some advice to help along the way whether it be effective workouts or how to excel in your school's basketball team.
