NATIONAL SCOOTER CHAMPIONSHIPS

NATIONAL GOVERNING BODIES

National Governing Body

NATIONAL SCOOTER CHAMPIONSHIPS

The ISF World Scooter championships will unite National Governing Bodies (NGB’s) and recognise National Scooter Championships as part of the qualification process for the world scooter finals 2022.

Supporting National Governing Bodies

As part of the ISF’s commitment to support National Governing Bodies and to be inclusive of all nations worldwide. The ISF will accept 3 male and 3 female pro riders from a national governing body. This is on the basis that:

    • A country has a National Governing Body that recognises scooters and the NGB is willing to complete an application and submit those riders. If the NGB has a championship, then the ISF can accept the top riders from this.
    • If a country hasn’t an NGB but has an unofficial national championship or national level event, then the ISF can accept the top riders from this. Sanctioning required via the ISF

If you are an NGB that recognises scooters or are forming a scooter association/federation, then please get in touch to see how the ISF can help. We offer memberships, which includes seminars, coaching and judging programs, event and championship support, and more. Visit – https://www.isfscoot.org/

Riders

The ISF will announce further details in due course. For the time being please SUBSCRIBE to our newsletter or follow the ISF via social media.

Note: The ISF is a dedicated scooter federation, which has transitioned from the International Scooter Association and has been coordinating and governing scooter activity since 2011. Discover More Here

CATEGORIES

The ISF championships are currently junior, pro male and pro female only, however every competition within the championship will have grassroots activity for non-pro riders provided by the competition organizer. It is recommended that the judges should be consulted if there is uncertainty when placing a rider in a category based on skill level.

  1. Pro category Male and Female

Riders that get paid in money to perform their sport on a daily basis, get paid to compete, receive money to represent one or more brands or participate in competitions that include prize money. The Pro category is based on ability. No rider should be excluded just because they aren’t sponsored or paid.

There are no age restrictions, but parental consent may be required for those that don’t meet age restrictions, determined by the competition organizer. Any rider that has ridden in the Pro category can’t then ride in a lesser category at a later date in any ISF recognized comp. The rider will therefore remain a pro rider for the duration of the season.

  1. Junior (16 and under)

Riders that don’t get paid to perform their sport on a daily basis or get paid to compete and don’t receive any prize money from competitions, are considered amateur riders. Being sponsored with rider equipment, safety gear, travel expenses or clothes does not mean that rider is a pro rider.

This category is for riders, sponsored or unsponsored, who are not quite at a pro level of riding, or have limited competition experience. Depending on the number of participants this category can be divided into smaller sub-categories based on age, or skill level – although this is not recommended as it can be difficult to determine before a competition.

The competition organizer may also decide to allow any intermediate rider placed in the top 3 with the opportunity to compete in the Pro level competition

Note: Any junior rider (male or female) who is 16 & under can register and compete in the ISF junior championships. A rider who have been pro in 2021 cannot drop back to amateur to participate in the junior category.

Judging Criteria

Safety

SAFETY

If a rider feels they are being placed in danger or something is unsafe, then they should stop riding and are to report the matter to the organizer immediately.

A competition and/or riders may be removed from the ISF championship or have action taken against them for compromising safety.

  1. Riders must wear a fastened helmet (certified), appropriate shoes, clothing and have an undamaged scooter. The ISF has a strict “No helmet NO riding” policy.
  2. An appropriate first aider / medical staff must be onsite at all times.
  3. All accidents are recorded and reported to the ISF or national association.
  4. A rider is responsible for their health and can only ride if they are fit and well. Any rider that is coming back from a known injury may be asked by the organizer to produce a doctor’s note proving they are medically fit to compete.
  5. All riders must be aware and understand the skatepark rules and safety measures.
  6. The organizer must do a risk assessment or ensure the skatepark has one.
  7. It’s the competition organizers responsibility to have initiatives for continuous safety improvements, adding additional measures where appropriate and ensuring safety is never compromised.
  8. The competition organizer will conform to the safety standards of the skatepark or venue, and that of any national law.
  9. If a rider feels they are being placed in danger then they should not ride and are to report the matter to the organizer. The ISF is not a competition organizer and therefore it’s the competition organizers responsibility to be reactive to any concerns towards a rider’s safety.
  10. Riders are never to ride beyond their limitation. If an organizer or an ISF official feels a rider is not pro level they should be removed from the competition.
  11. Riders are to abide the ISF rules and ride on good condition, non-faulty stunt scooter.
  12. Competition riders are to complete an ISF medicial waiver release form stating they understand the rules, code of conduct and dangers of competing, and are fit and healthy to compete.
  13. A competition organizer will not tolerate abusive, aggressive or inappropriate behaviour from anyone.

For over 10 years the scooter championships has been a significant part of the sport.  Developing rules, regulations and standards, and co-ordinating the scooter/action sports industry to create a world stage for the riders to showcase their sport to the world.

Today, scooter riding is one of the worlds most popular wheeled sports for young people and is a gateway into sport for millions.
