Street League Format Contest for Advanced/Pro:
The Street League format is broken down into three specific sections: Flow, Control, and Impact. Scores are cumulative, so every section counts. The 20 skaters will be divided into 2 “heats” of 10 and each skater will be judged on a scale of 1-10 in each section.
The Flow Section features the first group of 10 attempting two one-minute runs skating the entire course. The lowest score of the two are dropped for each contestant and the 5 skaters with the lowest overall scores are eliminated from each group. Total time: 30 mins.
The Control Section allows the remaining 5 skaters from each “heat” five attempts to score the highest trick possible. The skaters can utilize the entire course, with the exception of the Impact Section. The highest score each of the skater’s attempts is the only one from the section that gets used. The two skaters with the lowest overall scores are eliminated. Total time: 30 minutes
The Impact Section is the third and final section of the contest. The top 3 from each of the heats will be joined and the final six skaters have six attempts each to put down the highest score possible utilizing only the Impact Section obstacle. The two lowest scores of each of the skater’s attempts are dropped. The skater with the highest overall cumulative score at the end of the section is the winner. Total time: 1 hour.
