War of the Ams (W-AMS!) is an amateur skate contest series that will take place at approximately 50 skateparks across the country simultaneously. Buster Halterman, Director of Skateboarding says “W-AMS! starts the series locally, allowing kids of all ages and levels to compete in a points series on the local level, then with hope to advance to higher level competition via a district, regional and national level event.”
The contests will be managed by a centralized website like Myspace.com that skaters can use to check stats and rankings and build custom pages. W-AMS! is expected to generate revenue for privately owned skateparks across the US through entry-fee money and profit sharing opportunities.
