What is Soap Box Derby?

In our 10th year, the ASBD is a youth racing event that is open to boys and girls between the ages of 7 through 21 that reside in Eastern Massachusetts.

This is a unique program in that it encourages close parent-child activities while building and racing a car. The construction of the gravity race car reinforces the importance of setting and completing goals while developing traits such as self-confidence, perseverance and craftsmanship. Parents can learn new abilities while teaching children proper use of tools. The youth is encouraged to do as much of the work as their level permit.
