    ABOUT

    2017 marks the 14th Annual King of the Groms/Ams Championships. This event started in 2003 as a way for us to highlight youth skateboarding in the midwest. Over the years the event has evolved and grown as we have hosted stops throughout the U.S. and Canada. Thousands of young riders have participated and many have gone on to make significant contributions to skateboarding. Throughout it all our vision and goals have remained the same; to provide a fun environment where we can all come together to support the next generation of rippers.

    For 2017 we have brought this event full circle and back to its roots. This means we will be hosting only 1 event weekend back where it all started – 3rd Lair SkatePark in Golden Valley, MN. We are looking forward to another amazing experience and can not wait to see all of our old friends while welcoming in the new. The 2017 King of the Groms/Ams Championships will be happening August 4 - 6, 2017.
