Background

The Australian Skateboarding Federation (ASF) is the only national representative body dedicated solely to skateboarding. The ASF has been built on passion by skateboarders with key support by experienced sport and business administrators. The long term objective of the ASF is to grow participation, oversee organised competitive skateboarding, and to provide pathways of development from grass roots to elite in all disciplines.

The ASF activity footprint covers the nation with competitions, coaching programs and youth activities to be delivered in 2015. Previously skateboarding has lacked effective National Governance supported by the skateboarding community. The ASF rectifies this with a dedicated focus on skateboarding and skateboarders only.
