FIRS minutes :

The 7th of February, took place a FIRS meeting, following the general elections, about Freestyle Skating. FIRS, CIPA, FFRS, IFSA, WSSA & CARS members took part, aiming to take good decisions for these sports.

Goal : Unifying Freestyle Skating for a more efficient development & to match the CIO demand. Therefore, the FIRS proposes :

+ to move the Freestyle Skating activities, under the organization of the IFSA, from CIC control to CIPA control.

+ to keep the FIRS Speed Slalom rules, and FIRS Free-Jump rules.

+ to merge the FIRS Freestyle Slalom rules with the WSSA. This means the format will be classic individual. The Battles competition should be transformed to normal individual competitions & not organised anymore in WSSA.

+ to add Jam skating & Shuffles as open sport such as high jump. Freestyle Slalom, Speed Slalom, Free-Jump will remain official sports.

+ to have 1 unique World Championship. A selection in between Shanghai & StMédard should be done, the proposal should be on Shanghai. StMédard will be postponed to 2010. The World Cup remains the same.

+ to unify the rules. The choice of specialized judges has been proposed by the FIRS, but the WSSA refused. It has been decided to vote this point per country taking part to the latest 3 World Championship.

Before the end of march, WSSA & IFSA will propose a list of members/Federations to vote for freestyle, and a list of points to be voted.
