New dates, same good time!
Skate Like a Girl is excited to announce that our 11th annual Wheels of Fortune event weekend will be hosted September 10-13th, 2020 in Seattle, WA, USA! For the last several years, this event weekend showcasing women, trans, non-binary, and gender non-confirming skaters has been hosted during the first weekend in May. This year, due to conflicting Olympic and other competitive spring and summer events, WOF 11 will be hosted in early September. In the meantime, reminisce with the recap footage and photos, help spread the word, and consider joining the WOF 11 Planning Committee. Weekend schedule, sign-ups, and more coming soon!
