JAM FORMAT

SENIOR CATEGORY

Groups of 4-5 people each skating during 7 minutes for classifications. Each participant will have a first run of 30 seconds and after that the participants will skate following turns until the time is up. The top 5 rated skaters from each category will qualify to the finals.

 

FINALS

1 group of 5 people for each category, skating during 8 minutes following turns and having one final trick. The previous classification performances do not score in the finals, only the tricks performed in the finals count for the final qualification.

 

* Number of skaters per group and timings can be adjusted depending on available time and number of participants.

 

The Best trick prize will be selected from the whole day and all categories, not only the finals.

SCORING SYSTEM AND JUDGING

All participants are welcome regardless of skill level. The description is only a guide to understand the judging format and scoring system. The event is for fun and there are no requirements for tricks.

 

Skating will be judged on 5 different categories:

  • Number of Tricks: The number of tricks landed and the variety: airs, grinds, rotations, flips, etc.

  • Use of the skatepark: Flowing around the park, covering more areas and touching several obstacles performing lines of tricks will give a higher score.

  • Level of difficulty: Technical difficulty, risk, amplitude, length and height will affect the scoring of each trick.

  • Overall Style and speed: The execution of each trick, the speed, the landing and overall execution of the run. Missed tricks do not give you negative points but they will not score.

  • Creativity: Experimentation with new tricks and different uses of the obstacles can give you extra points.

THE LOCATION

OUR STATEMENT

The Love Bowl at Skate Love Barcelona is open to skaters from all nationalities, races, genders and cultures.

 

With the The Love Bowl Contest we are collaborating for the first time with the Skating Federation and thanks to this collaboration and the support of the sponsors we could fund a park event in the best spot in the city, have international and professional judges to ensure neutral scoring, raise prize money (500€ each 1st prize + 100€ best trick) while keeping inscriptions as low as 30€ and the most important: including MEDICAL INSURANCE to all participants. Other extras involve having an ambulance with medical assistance, music, speaker, drinks and more surprises.

 

The two categories format is the standard in the Federation and in all professional sports (including skateboarding, snowboarding, inline skate and roller derby). This system could help with the professionalization of park skating and as well as offer more opportunities and prizes to all participants. But it must be clear we do NOT subscribe into the outdated gender categories used by traditional sport events. Our categories are: 

  • Cis female, trans female, femme and non-binary.

  • Cis male, trans male, masc and non-binary.

All genders are equally accepted and welcome.

 

We know this is still not a perfect system and while we are working within the parameters of this two categories system, we are aiming to change it in the future to better reflect the inclusive and well rounded nature of this community. Roller skating has always been an example of inclusivity and we believe it can be a pioneer in professional sports too.

 

We are trying our best to make Skate Love Barcelona a memorable and fun festival for all of you, to be a celebration of life and love where everyone is welcome but it is only with YOUR HELP that we can make it into reality.

 

Thanks for your feedback and your support, together we are better.

 💙💚💛🧡❤️
