Freestyle Scoring Criteria Change (Starting from WYYC2017)

After much discussion among judges all over the world, we have a freestyle scoring criteria change that will be effective starting with this year’s WYYC.

The only changes this year will be with evaluation criteria.

Up Until 2016:

  • Execution
  • Cleanliness
  • Variation
  • Rareness
  • Space Use
  • Music Use
  • Body Control
  • Showmanship

Beginning in 2017:

  • Execution
  • Control (Formerly “Cleanliness.” Name change only)
  • Trick Diversity (Compared to “Variation,” it concentrates on trick choice, trick mix, trick order and trick presentation.)
  • Space Use & Emphasis (Formerly “Space Use.” Name change only)
  • Choreography (Formerly “Music Use.” Concentrates on hitting sounds, beats, cues, etc.)
  • Construction (Formerly “Music Use.” Concentrates on mood, tone, routine, theme, etc.)
  • Body Control
  • Showmanship

Detailed rules are coming soon.
