Team Selection for World Skate Games Slalom Team
The World Skate Games in Argentina later this year (Oct 24 - Nov 13 ) is expected to include for the first time Skateboard Slalom Racing. The upcoming Slalom Championships to be held in Canberra on the 12th – 14th of March 2022, will be a pivotal event for Australian team selection, and will be run in line with ISSA rules.
We understand that if the World Skate Games includes a slalom program, it is expected to include; tight head to head, hybrid and giant slalom, in Buenos Aires and San Juan.
The qualification for World Skate Games is more formal than what we are used to in the slalom community.
We understand that there will be two classes: Men and Women, and no age classes. There will be three ways to qualify for these classes:
That means Australia can send 3 male and 3 female competitors to compete in the Slalom Racing program, plus any Australian in the top 20 of the ISSA rankings.

Once confirmed, ASRA will provide technical advice on slalom to Skate Australia, the recognised National Sporting Organisation for skateboarding and skate sports in Australia.
That advice will include ratification of skateboard racing rules, race sanctioning criteria, and providing guidance on identifying appropriate candidates who will be able to represent Australia in World Skate events.
Competitors should note that if selected, all costs to attend World Skate Games are paid by individual skaters as government funding is not available to support this competition.
Note that all racers are expected to have read and understood the ISSA rules.
