How It Works

The results for each category are calculated as follows:

All events you enter are assigned a point value in The Boardr Global Ranking System. The GFL Awards are calculated in a similar manner, but factor in only GFL events. For 2018, your best three placings for the year count towards calculating your GFL Season Ranking. Since the series expanded nationally in 2017, we are now only including your best three stops.

Your age as of the Awards date (November 23, 2019) is used for your age group category. This eliminates complexities with certain skaters advancing to a new age category within the year. All year long, you skate in the age division for the current age you're at, even if you move up in the middle of the year. Then at the end of the year, we use your current age as of November 23, 2019 and points to calculate the awards for each age division.

For anyone who enters a Sponsored or Girls Division during the year, they're separated and calculated as a group just for those divisions since there's no age breakdown. Basically, if you enter a Sponsored division at any time during the year, you're considered Sponsored for the entire year. Because of that, if you're thinking of moving up to a Sponsored Division, you should do it at the beginning of the year, not in the middle or the end.
