    Preamble • Current Freestyle Judging System is a mess! • I did a lot of research • My Publications:  A critical Review of Unicycling (2012): https://speakerdeck.com/gossi/a-critical-review-of-unicycling  Future Freestyle Judging (2012): https://speakerdeck.com/gossi/future-freestyle-judging  Freestyle – the most missunderrstoood Unicycle Discipline (2013): http://gos.si/blog/freestyle-the-most-missundrrstoood-unicycle-discipline  Die Komponenten des Freestyle (2013, german): https://speakerdeck.com/gossi/die-komponenten-des-freestyle  Die Probleme des Freestyle (2013, german): https://speakerdeck.com/gossi/die-probleme-des-freestyle-2013

    1 Terms and Definitions 1. Term: Freestyle 2. Components of Freestyle 3. Competition Landscape
  7. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 7

    1 Terms and Definitions Freestyle • Term: Freestyle • Discipline vs. Competition • Discipline: _Do whatever you want_ (Dictionary.com, 2014) • Competition (Pavicic, 2007, p. 87f)  Routine: Choreographed movements  Freestyle: Improvised movements matching music “Is an indication for free improvisation” (Wikipedia, 2014)

    2 Current Judging System Evaluation 1. Method 2. Result
  12. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 12

    2 Current Judging System Evaluation Method • What components are judged by the current judging system? • Mapping sections of the judging system to components • Extract numbers for each component per section • Calculate a total for each component
  13. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 13

    2 Current Judging System Evaluation Results Tricks (45%) Artistics (19,5%) Choreography (26,75%) Misc (8,75%) Legend: Tricks and Artistics should have 50:50 relationship? Never!
  15. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 15

    UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) 1. Preassumptions 2. Main Goal 3. Structure 1. Tricks 2. Artistics 3. Choreography 4. Judging Sheets 5. First Hand Experience
  16. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 16

    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
  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
  18. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 18

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) Structure • 3 Parts: • Main concept: Values range from 0 to 10; multiplied afterwards Tricks (40%) Artistics (40%) Choreography (20%) Legend:
  19. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 19

    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)
  20. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 20

    Excursion: Quality Same trick, different execution How much different? Is there a way to quantify the quality?
  21. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 21

    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 • Available (german only): http://einradfahren.de/skilltester
  22. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 22

    Excursion: Quality Skilltester Output
  23. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 23

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) Excursion: Routine Composition • Frame (theme/topic, acting, emotions, sense of movement) • Content (structured in choreography) • Technical Representation (Expression of content) • Message (optional)
  24. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 24

    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
  25. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 25

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) 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
  26. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 26

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) Formula Tricks = (Quality + Difficulty + Mastery) / 3 Artistics = (Body Language + Quality) / 2 Choreography = Sum of all ingredients Total = 2 * Tricks + 2 * Artistics + Choreography
  27. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 27

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) Judging Sheets
  28. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 28

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) Judging Sheet (Tricks)

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) Judging Sheet (Choreography & Artistics)
  30. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 30

    3 UniDancing Judging System (Prototype) 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

    4 Further Development 1. Testdata 2. Simulation 3. Plan
  32. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 33

    4 Development Testdata • What kind of test-data (routines) do we need? • Define quality guideline for videos • Find and select videos • Abstract routines into a testdata-file • Create testdata-format
  33. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 34

    4 Development Testdata (example)
  34. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 35

    4 Development Simulation • Simulate each iteration • Compare them • Create a matrix (if helpful) • Create (online) tools that help with these metrics

    4 Development Plan (Status: Development) Brainstorm / Research Implementation Evaluate Feedback Testing Status: Development New Insights
  36. 24.09.14 | International Unicycling Federation | Thomas Gossmann | 37

    4 Development Plan (Status: Last Call) Brainstorm / Research Implementation Testing Evaluate Feedback Status: Last Call Feedback Contains Issues? Yes Finish No
