The TTR together with the World Snowboard Federation (WSF) are happy to announce the 2011 Judge Session taking place in Innsbruck, Austria from November 25th to 27th, 2011. This is the first combined international TTR/WSF Judge Clinic and is planned to take place on an annual basis moving forward.
Two separate forums will be offered over the course of the three-day Judge Session. The National Level Clinic is open for all in attendance and will be geared towards judges who will be working with 1Star to 3Star regional events. The National Level clinic will focus on judging and judge training that will include training on the safety aspect of running freestyle events. The session will be rounded out with a test in video judging and a theoretical portion.
By completing the test at the end of the national judge-clinic, participants will receive a “TTR/WSF National C Certification” – which gives them certification to judge at 1Star – 3Star events and to act as head judge at 1Star and 2Star events.
The International Judge Clinic is reserved for judges who have prior experience with higher-level events. By attending the International Judge Clinic and fulfilling the criteria, participants will receive a “TTR/WSF A Level Certification” – which gives them the authority to judge at 4Star and 5Star events and to be head judge at 4Star events.
After the judges can prove judging experience on the 4Star and 5Star level, fulfill the criteria for Pro level, plus show strong leadership and judging skills, they will receive the “TTR/WSF International PRO Certificate” – which certifies their ability to judge 6Star level events and to head judge on the 5Star level.
The event will be wrapped up with a discussion on the direction of judging and our sport today.
