Judges Proctors Clinic 2009-2010

From FIS Freestyle wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

From June 18-20, 2009, 11 freestyle officials from seven nations re-evaluating over 100 competition runs and jumps from last season’s Freestyle FIS World Cup.

This three day FIS Freestyle Judges’ Proctors meeting was held in Munich(GER)at the Sheraton Munich Westpark Hotel [1].

The pre-meeting work made great use of most advanced video technology (Dartfish TV Front Flip vs. Front Flip [2]), and was the result of a cooperative approach between every aspect of the discipline, including input from the NSA coaches, to the preparation of material by the different Rules and Officials working groups as well as FIS coordination.

The detailed video material that was reviewed and produced will be used at the series of annual continental judges’ clinics this coming autumn. The A level judges’ clinics will be held in Jindabyne (AUS), Queenstown (NZL), Stockholm (SWE), Montreal (CAN) Roggenbeuren Bodensee (GER), Toyama (JPN) and a location to be determined either in Belarus or the Ukraine while some B level clinics will be held in North America, Europe and Asia. It is expected that just over 350 Freestyle Judges will be trained before the start of next season.

By the end of the seminar, 20 hours of clinic material, with 80 mogul runs, 20 half-pipe runs and 50 aerial jumps had been detailed and a total 70 gigabits of video data produced. The video material will be available from the FOT [3], or Dartfish TV [4].

[edit] Proposal to Freestyle Committee concerning 'Front Slap'

Punch Front landing values need clarification

  • Form , need greater attention to separation and timing
  • Revised scorecard needed for punch front consideration.

Punch Front is considered as severe imbalance and could include either small touch , ie front flip or hard touch , ie front roll .6 should be max for the touch.

The Group discussed the possibility of front without touch , and the consensus is that the severe imbalance is the driver and must push the score down, the exit can be evaluated for after the touch and result in score up to 1.7 max and will out score the backslap.

Explain to the world that the Punch from may appear as a fall but could receive the same score as a landing that hits ski first and is working extreme movement and struggle to maintain on their feet, could possibly receive lower score than the punch front due to the control and the management of the position.

Difference between front roll and the back slap is up to 0.4 .

Proposal: add punch front value to score card

Remove the reference of 12-16 from the scorecard.

Punch Front roll with possible light touch will be added to the .8-1.1 section of the card. Light touch is considered as ski to ski front , light touch is with the hand.

Punch front roll will be added to landing card language.

  • Video examples are needed for clinic
  • .5-.9
  • .8 – 1.1

Card language has been revised. during meeting

“ Front roll , even if there is “no – touch” must be lower than the basic ‘no-touch’ score.

Reviewed video examples of Punch front landings and discussed the “almost landed” vs the radical “interesting landing “ that scores better.

  • Page 11 section 60043.1.2 needs clarification to include the results of this conversation and reference punch front roll landing condition.
  • Refresher, pre world cup judge work should be distributed to assure understanding prior to assignment.
