US Wakepark League F.A.Q.

How are the overall points figured?

The lowest overall points you could get for winning the division is 10 points, even if you are the only one in it. If you have more than ten people it is worth more overall points for two reasons. One it is harder to beat 13 people than 9 or even 2 other people, also I wanted to be able to give points to everyone that rode even the last place finisher! This way we don’t make it weighted heavily to or for against either situation (a lot or very few riders) because the individual can’t control that but the rider in a monstrous heat is rewarded a little bit. Hopefully everyone agrees on the happy medium. If there is 3 or more qualifying series per discipline the lowest score will be dropped per discipline. There will be completely separate qualifying series for PARK and FEATURES.

Can I Change Divisions?

If you have to move down a division because of injury or whatever you can carry your points down with you. Example if I rode in Pro week 1 and got smoked but did earn 4 points I can carry those down to the Men 18+ division since I was against harder competition. Now as far as moving up to a harder division, which will probably happen more often, riders will receive 70% of the points they earned in the lesser division. So if I won boys 11-13 and realize I belong in Boys 11-13 Elite, I would be able to apply 7 pts to my overall Boys 11-13 Elite score for week1.

Will my points count if I ride at multiple parks?

The scores will count but only for the park in which you rode that week. You can ride at multiple parks and even qualify for multiple parks, but the scores will be kept completely separate.

Will there still be Points Chase this year?

No. USWL is the new national series that qualifiers riders for the WWA Wake Park National Championships. While we loved working alongside Points Chase over the last few years, we are excited for the what the future holds with the US Wakepark League!

How do I earn a spot for the championship?

While participation in a qualifier is not mandatory this year, riders who choose to compete in a qualifier will earn a higher seeding going into the National Championships. This can be a massive advantage when competing at the National Championships.

TIE BREAKERS for weekly overall scores:

If two or more riders top qualifying scores combined are tied at the end of the series a tie breaker will be used to determine the higher placement:

  1. Head to head weeks where the tied riders competed against each other. This only works if two riders are tied (not 3 or more) The rider that had the higher placement in events that both riders competed in will win the tie breaker. If the riders beat each other equally once, twice or even three times then see the next tie breaker.
  2. Who won more individual events. If riders won the same amount of weekly events see next tie breaker.
  3. Who placed second at more events. If riders placed second the same amount of weekly events see next tie breaker.
  4. Who placed third at more events. If riders placed third the same amount of weekly events see next tie breaker.
    5. If everything is exactly even it will remain a tie.
