About The Event
Bringing you the biggest Tricking events in Ohio since 2012, the NEO Gathering is back this December with a fresh new battle format!
We present to you NEO: The Showdown
The Showdown is a two-day event seeking to introduce the competitive side of Tricking to the movement communities, near and far. Similar to bboying, athletes will face head to head in a Tricking "battle" bracket, throwing down their best skills to win the hearts of the crowd and the judges. But most importantly, this event aims to allow young athletes to push their limits and express themselves by showing off their own personal style.
Hosted at neoMOTION in Avon Lake, Ohio, the weekend will include the following:
- Workshops led by some of Tricking's most talented athletes (specifically to prepare you for battling)
- Head-to-head Novice, Intermediate, and Boss division battles (prizes awarded for top 3 finishers in each division)
- Open session for all skill levels - train alongside and learn intimately from some of the best Trickers in the game!
So whether you're just getting into Tricking or you're a Pro Battler with eyes on the prize, the Showdown will be a blast - see you there!
Select this option if you plan to ONLY participate in workshops. This ticket grants its holder access to all three 30-minute workshops at The Showdown, led by some of Tricking's most experienced athletes. The workshops will focus specifically on battle tactics and developing skills / combos to utilize in battle scenarios. If you'd prefer to register for an individual seminar, you may do so for $25 at the door. No experience is required - no one that wants to learn will be turned away.
