Licenses

Our Licenses are seperated in 3 Categories

One of the goals of the WSFed is to create a consistent and fair scoring guideline for slackline competitions, to make the performance of the riders comparable worldwide. Therefore it is necessary that all jurors score on the basis of the same rules and to abide by the same policies and regulations. That is why the WSFed developed a judging license system, which makes it possible to evaluate and to license future judges.

The three judging licenses:
C-License / B-License / A-License

The requirement for the license level of the judges is:
World Championship: A / A / B
National Championship:  C / C / C
World Cup: A / B / B
Open: B / C / C
Jam:  C / - / -

After an additional license for apprenticeship training the A-licensed judge is furthermore entitled to take the examination to become a judging instructor. This qualifies to host independently licensing examinations for C judges. The WSFed will inform all A-judges about the ongoing development.

C-License

To get the WSFed C-License you need to take part in the C-License examination. The passing of the exam enables to judge Slackline Open, Jams and Slackline National Championships.
The examination consists of two parts: a written exam (questionary) and a practical test (also online possible). Both parts have to be passed successfully. If the examinee fails in one of both, he has to repeat the whole examination.

B-License

The experience plays an important part in the progress of the judging education. It is required to judge three contests as a C-license Judge, to be admitted to the B-License exam. Besides the Opens, Jams and Nationals the B-License also enables to judge Slackline World Cups and World Championships.
The examination consists of two parts: a written exam (questionary) and a practical test (also online possible). Both parts have to be passed successfully. If the examinee fails in one of both, he has to repeat the whole examination.

A-License

As a B-licensed juror you have to judge five additional contests to be admitted to take part in the A-License examination. A-licensed judges are enabled to judge all categories of WSFed contest and will be the chairman of the judging committee.
The examination consists of three parts: a written exam (questionary) and a practical test. The third part will be an interview with a WSFed judging commissioner. This aims for proofing the abilities and knowledge of the A-License applicant. All parts can also be conducted online, as the circumstances require.
