of a local event
For new countries/association aiming to organise sport
events, who are can not host official international competitions,
(few skatesr, local action, budget ...) they can set a
local contest to developp their skating scene as a 1st
Championship & Cup. How
to a local event on your own - with a
very little budget : What do you need ?
competition area :

1 competition manager, a staff of some people to
play the CD of music + do the administration (list
+ presentation of the results).
IFSA suggest to invite official judges who know about
how to run the event & know about how to rank the
competitors, but in case it is not possible, for
a local event with little budget, you can set volunteers
around 2 keys (technique : is it difficult ? style&management
: is it smooth & match the music?). For speed slalom
& jump, local rules can be easy
to set. Local rules must be explained to the competitors,
they need to accept this settings
: no official judges,
but volunteer to run the event.
time table - a schedule :
a precise time table is required, therefore an
estimation of the competitors taking part has to
Respect of the time table is very important for
the success of your event.
Equipment : chronometer
system - music system - table - chairs - jump board
(for high jump only)
toilets, foods&drinks for sale have to be on
the event area or really near. First Help or infirmary.
