2006 : IFSA Rules

Dear Skaters, the IFSA will present the next season rules updates during the board meeting 14th October 2006. Meanwhile next competition is coming soon, and skaters will need to prepare runs. Here are some updates of the rules which are impacting the way to prepare the next competition :

* Management Mark : new family : spinning tricks : on 1 or 2 wheels (for inlineskates), turning minimum twice (720°)

* Management Mark : Eagle and Reverse Eagle will be together : including no combined tricks.

* 120cm slalom will have only 14 cones (instead of 20cones as it used to be). This slalom meant to be performed fast, suffered from the lack of space on competition areas, as well as training areas.

* the whole updates will be presented the 14th october 2006

Best training to all skaters,

2006 : IFSA Rules

Dear Skaters,
As presented in the former news, the IFSA has created a work group about the updates of freestyle skating sports rules, since October 2005.

The method has been set as follows :
1/ Identify the current issues for freestyle slalom & speed slalom + check the reports coming from skaters, judges, IFSA
representants ...
2/ Summ up these informations & check their coherence, to define the axes of updates.
3/ Set proposal of updates for each issues
4/ Summ up these proposal
5/ Check coherence of the updates, so each criteria changes is making a true change, and not making double change, not
creating new unbalances among the criterias.
6/ Present these updates at the IFSA Board meeting 2006 : the 14th October 2006 in Paris + display on www.ifsasports.org

Skaters have expressed some demand of changes, but few proposals have been clearly set. Meanwhile 1 early proposal came from Italy on time and took full part to the work group, then a first proposal from China has been received the 21st november 2005, a second proposal came officially from China (CRSA) the 29th March 2006 & another proposal came from France (CNRA) the 27th July 2006. In order to inform all skaters, please find these incomes from our partners linked. (not all translated in english).

The IFSA Rules updates have required huge work from the group in charge. We kindly thank all participants. For freestyle slalom, this updates need to be coherent, each changes has an effect on the ranking of competitors, each criteria has no sens if not understood in the whole judging system. Be sure the expert work group has no other duty than providing fair conditions for sport development.

Sport Regards,



2006 : The next sport season might start soon. Therefore for all organisations of competition willing to register for the IFSA cup season 2006-2007, please apply by mail at board@ifsasports.org before the 30th September 2006.
