Judging Criteria: 

Park Comp Format:

Open Comp (Open to all)

Length of run: Two 1 min runs.

These runs will be scored by the judges based on 'Number of Tricks Landed', 'Difficulty/Amplitude' and 'Flow/Park Use'. Points will be deducted from 'Number of Tricks Landed' for each bail based on severity, eg. Foot down on trick = -1 point, fall on trick attempt, -2 points.

Each judge will score each category out of 100. These will then be added together and then averaged for your final run score. The best score out of the 2 runs will count.


JUDGING (Park Comp):
There will be 3 judges and they will score you in the following areas.

1- NUMBER OF TRICKS LANDED. For this category you will receive 1 point for each trick that you land. There is a total of 10 points available in this category. Eg. If you throw 12 tricks in your run but only land 9, you will receive 9 points. (This will be multiplied by 10 for Open and Intermediates).

2- DIFFICULTY / AMPLITUDE. For this category you will receive a score out of 10 (Under 10s) or 100 (Inter / PRO (Open)). It will be based on the overall difficulty of your tricks as well as the amplitude of your tricks. Eg. A flair whip will receive a higher score than a tail whip as it is more DIFFICULT. A buttercup 3 feet above coping will receive a higher score than a buttercup under coping as it has more AMPLITUDE.

3- FLOW / PARK USE. For this category you will receive a score out of 10 (10 and unders) or 100 (Inter / PRO (Open)). It will be based on the flow of your run as well as your use of the park. Eg. A run full of flyout tricks will receive fewer points than a run that is based on a single line that is linked together, as it has better FLOW. A rider that sticks to one area of the park will receive fewer points than a rider that uses multiple areas of the park as they had better PARK USE.

Style: The aim of the 'Street Jam' is to throw down the most gnarly tricks and technical lines. This will be reflected in the 'Style' score.

Tricks: Riders will be judged on the tricks that they throw during their runs. The more difficult the trick, the higher the score.

Overall Difficulty: This score is a collective that comprises 'Style' and 'Tricks' but factors in the extra elements that make a trick extra special and spectacular. The higher a rider jumps, the further they grind and the faster they ride and perform their tricks all fall under this category.

The two/three riders who throw down the hardest and perform the best in each round will progress through to a 6/8/10 man final (based on number of riders entering).

In the final, each rider will get two 1 min runs where they will attempt throw down their best trick! This can either be a 1 min run or you can attempt to throw down as many bangers as you can, its up to you!

Style: The aim of the 'Bowl Soul Jam' is to ride the bowl as a bowl should be ridden. This will be reflected in the 'Style' score. The more the rider flows and cruises the bowl, the more points they will earn in this section.

Tricks: Riders will be judged on the tricks that they throw during their runs. The more difficult the trick, the higher the score.

Overall Difficulty: This score is a collective that comprises 'Style' and 'Tricks' but factors in the extra elements that make a trick extra special and spectacular. The higher a rider airs, the further they grind and the faster they ride and perform their runs all fall under this category.

Each category will be scored out of 10 and added together to generate a score out of 30 points for each rider. Each finalists best trick will receive a score of 1 - 10 which will be added to their final score.
