Some of the world's most extreme sports is coming to the Derby Downs.
The First Energy All-American Soap Box Derby will be hosting an educational program on street luge and skateboarding events.
The derby has presented various alternative uses for the hill throughout the years.
"It's something that we had last year at the All-American and we saw the excitement in the kids eyes. We thought we could expand on that," said Joe Mazur, president of the Soap Box Derby.
The "Learn to Luge/Skate Day" will be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Participants in the one-day course will receive both classroom and practical luge and skateboard training by some of the top professionals in the world.
"There will be about a dozen "Open Hill Days" for certified luge and skateboarders."
For those who complete the course, they will receive a certification to attend the events throughout the year on select dates.
Certified racers will also get a chance to participate in the sanctioned luge and skateboard races scheduled for September 22-23 at the Derby Downs.
