Jaden and Jedd Hardy are looking to win some silverware at the 2022 Australian Scooter Association Championships in Melbourne.

Jaden (15) and Jedd (13) earned the right to represent Queensland after placing first and second at the state titles in Brisbane on April 3.

The boys’ mother Marjo said the teens were really excited to compete against Australia’s best.

“It’s a great achievement for them and they have worked so hard to accomplish this and have put in heaps of practice,” said Marjo.

“I’m such a proud mum, words cannot express how proud I am of my boys.”

Marjo said it was awesome that Jaden and Jedd – both students at St James Lutheran College – shared such a passion for the sport.

“I love watching them and seeing what they can do on their scooters.”

Both boys have put in the hard work to reach the top of their respective age groups.

“To be at their level takes lots of practice. The boys love riding, whether it’s at the local skateparks, at home or other skateparks – their scooters travel with us wherever we go.”

Despite the brothers sharing an interest in the sport, Marjo said their styles were very different.

“Jaden is a bit of a dare devil and really pushes the boundaries with his tricks. Jedd plays it a bit safer. Overall though they are both sensible riders. The things they can go on their scooters is really incredible.”

The sport is also a great way to meet new people and make friends.

Marjo said they had met some awesome families in recent years as a direct result of the sport.

“It’s also a good way to keep fit and anyone can get involved,” she explained.

“You never know where the sport your children are interested in may take them.”

Marjo said local scooter riders would benefit from having an indoor skatepark.

While the outdoor skateparks offer kids hours of fun and entertainment, they cannot practice if it’s wet.

She believes an indoor facility would be a popular addition to the Fraser Coast sports scene.
