3 station Sequence Jam format.
Depending on the number of participating athletes, 5 TO 6 competitors will be doing the Sequence Jam format. The MC will announce each skater in the group who will do an introductory run for the judges to recognize him. This will also let them know their line- up sequence to do the jam. This format will ensure judges do not miss any good tricks performed by the skaters. Once the jam starts, the skaters will keep on skating until the time is up.
This is not a best trick event; all skaters will be judged on consistency, variety and difficulty of tricks. All groups must finish their station before moving to a new station and will continue until the last station is done. Results from all 3 stations will be added up and divided by 3 to give a score. The highest score wins. In case of a tie, the judges will meet to determine the true winner.
