We are in a very fortunate position - and one that we are very grateful for. Scooters Canada is the major player in Canada's exploding scooter scene and that is thanks entirely to the enthusiasm and loyalty of thousands of riders across the country.
Scooters Canada is very thankful for this support and we are constantly aware that it is you guys and gals - the riders - who are responsible for our success. In order to give back to the sport and help push scootering into new frontiers, Scooters Canada is looking to add a few new recruits to our Team for 2013.
There is no specific trick you need to land. There is no specific style.
We are looking for ambassadors: Friendly, upbeat, honest representatives of the sport that will introduce newcomers to the scooter scene and push the established riders to new heights. While you certainly need to be an amazing rider to earn a spot, it is even more important that you are an amazing person. Please consider the responsibility this entails before you post a video.
Furthermore, depending on the quantity and quality of submissions, newer riders should be thrilled to hear that we are considering an Amateur Team in addition to our Pro Team. This suggestion came straight from pro rider Jacob Pearcey who suggested that an Amateur Team would allow for broader representation at competitions and help foster rider development.
How to submit: Log onto Facebook and post your a link to your video up on our Facebook page. Our pro riders will be checking these videos constantly and looking to spot the talent of tomorrow. Please ensure that your video includes a little interview/introduction where you tell us a little about yourself, what you love about scootering, and why we should sponsor you. And it wouldn't hurt to include some kickass riding too!
Please do not ask questions in the comments section of these blogs, because we CANNOT reply to comments. All questions and discussions should be posted on our Facebook page.
Good luck everyone!
