    Current Freestyle Judging System is a mess!

    3 Preassumptions

    This is a prototype! Everything is subject to change.

    Rules and Sheets are available at:
    https://github.com/iuf/unidancing

    Judging system and judge education are two independent
    ares, that can and must be worked on in parallel
     Keep in mind: this presentation only focusses the judging system

    View full-size slide

  17. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 17
    3 Main Goal

    Only judge dimensions, that are neutral across various styles
    of routines

    Riders shall deliver a beautiful* “package”

    Be careful: Judging contents can and will make assumptions
    and guidelines to what is beautiful and not, which can easily
    be wrong → research and testing is required

    Main Idea: Focus athletic achievement (Tricks & Artistics)
    *beautiful in the context of their routine

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype)
    Part: Tricks
    Tricks:
    Tricks = (Quality + Difficulty + Mastery) / 3
    Quality (10 Pts)
    - How is a trick done?
    - Median of all tricks
    Difficulty (10 Pts)
    - How is a trick done?
    - Median of all tricks
    Mastery (10 Pts)
    Distractions for:
    - Unintentionally regain
    Balance (-0.25)
    - Minor dismount (-0.5)
    - Major dismount (-0.75)
    10 - (sum of distractions)

    Skilltester

    A tool for practice, to help people learn tricks, avoid mistakes
    and make them beautiful

    Quantifies the quality of a trick, which is why it is a good
    measuring instrument

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype)
    Part: Artistics
    Artistics:
    Artistics = (Body Language + Quality) / 2
    Body Language (10 Pts)
    - How well does your body
    express what you mean/
    want to say?
    0 – Do not understand
    5 – Halfway understand
    10 – Fully understand
    Quality (10 Pts)
    - How is a artistics motion
    done?
    0 – Badly, no body tension
    10 – High quality, great body
    tension

    Part: Choreography
    Choreography, a checklist:
    Choreography = Sum of all ingredients
    Property Points (Total = 10)
    Balanced ratio between Tricks and Artistics (50:50) 2
    Relation of components
    → Tricks & Artistics 0.5
    → Music & Costume 0.5
    → Artistic & Music 0.5
    Dynamics
    → Diversified locomotion 2
    → Accentured speed changes 2
    Costume
    → Practical costume 0.5
    → Brilliant costume 1

    First Hand Experience

    Tricks part is already very solid

    Artistics has some discrepancy between
     what the judging system wants you to judge and
     what the judge actually judges (in that situation)
     both can be right!

    Choreography works better than expected
     Can't be boolean, must be a scale
     Divisions need more research

    Relationship between tricks and artistics is sloppy
