At the Calgary Scooter Jam 2015 held on Saturday, Aug. 29, Jared Fraser of Stettler placed second in the in the 12 and under pro category.
Tyson Foster of Canmore took first place in the same category.
The annual jam, which is a gathering of scooter enthusiasts, both professionals and amateurs, was held at Shaw Millennium Park, considered to be a world-class skatepark at the centre of Calgary.
It consists of several events, with competitions for amateur riders, trick demonstrations and the pro shootout.
Fraser who tuned 12 in May started scootering when he was eight.
“I have spent many a day or evenings traveling to other skateparks in Alberta with Jared,” said Heidi Fraser, his mother, vice-president of the Stettler Skatepark Association. “Usually with a car full of his friends so they can experience different parks.”
According to his mother, Fraser spends hours at the skatepark here in Stettler, honing his scootering skills and practising his tricks.
On Saturday, August 22, Fraser won third place at Rock the Rails scooter competition held at Leduc Skateboard Park, competing against an older age group of 16-17 years.
