  2. Events with less than 20 competitors will be rounded to the highest 10

  3. Seven participants ranked points eligible to 10th, thirteen competitors points eligible to 20th

Ranking Breakdown

  1. ​Skaters are ranked using the three (3) highest results, based on allocated points within one (1) calendar year from the event selection date, no less than three weeks from the event.

    • ​With the ongoing resumption of events internationally, the list is now live. However with the lack of domestic events in Canada, events from 2020 will still count. All events from 2019 or before are no longer valid for ranking.

  2. Those three events are averaged to create a ranking value

  3. Individual skaters are ranked compared to all other skaters based on the average of their top three (3) results.

Each event is assigned a base point value from 100 to 1000 based on the anticipated level of the event size of field and quality of competitors, with some extra consideration for Canadian events. Events can increase or decrease by a maximum of 30% depending

on  the size of  the field and quality of the competitors. For event value detail, click the links below.

Canada Skateboard's rankings use each skater's top 3 results in the past 12 months. Points from the top three Canadian events are averaged to create their points (max 1000). Each event is assigned a point value and points are awarded based on the value of the event. Points are awarded using the skater's result from the highest round of the event.

The number of competitive opportunities available to Canada Skateboard athletes is established by World Skate, described as the Canadian quota for that event. Canada Skateboard reserves the right to offer competitive opportunities to fewer athletes than the number designated as the Canadian Quota. Available quotas differ per event, details can be referenced on the World Skate website in the bulletins:

The opportunity to participate in World Skate sanctioned competitions shall be offered to athletes in the order of their ranking as determined by the “Ranking Process” detailed below.


Athlete selection for the following competitions will be determined no later than three weeks before the event:

  • World Championships

  • Street League Pro Tour
