WELCOME TO THE ISA

The International Scooter Association is a not for profit organisation established in 2011 to promote, develop and create a sustainable future for the sport of scooter riding. The ISA is made up of riders, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, skateparks, organisers, media and those involved in the scooter industry. All members bring knowledge, experience and value to all scooter matters and activity. The ISA is not a competition organiser; it’s role is to co-ordinate, recognise, govern and develop an equal playing field for entire sport to benefit from. The ISA is dedicated to the development of the sport worldwide, on all levels from grassroots to pro level.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The ISA aims to:

  • Promote the interests and safety of riders at all levels
  • Establish rules, judging criteria, point scoring, standards and rankings
  • Set competition formats & point systems for conducting international scooter contests
  • Co-ordinate National and International activities and contests.
  • Work toward ensuring Freestyle Scooter Riding becomes recognized as an official sport
  • Promote the values of good sportsmanship.
  • Promote all aspects of the sport, improving cultural and sporting contacts between the
    scooter communities.
  • Work towards the inclusion of Scooter riding into multi-sports events.
  • The ISA Championship is split into 3 regions; Europe, North America and Australasia.
  • Each region has 5 qualifying events.
  • The winner of each qualifying event receives a Golden Ticket which grants them a place in the world final.
  • The next 10 riders from each qualifying event (places 2nd – 11th) secure a place in the regional final. So each regional final has 50 riders.
  • The top 10 riders from the regional final go through to the world final.
  • They join the 5 Golden Ticket riders, meaning there are 15 riders from each region in the world final.
  • 5 additional places in the world final are reserved for Wildcards. These are given out for special reasons, for example, the current world champion receives one.

  • A minimum of 3 judges are required for regional qualifiers unless otherwise stated by the
    organizer (who may adopt for a 5 judging panel).
  • A 5 judging panel is compulsory for the regional and world finals.
  • When running a 5 judge panel only the 3 middle scores are calculated meaning the highest
    and lowest scores are dropped from the overall calculation.
  • Judges scores are marked from 1 to 100 based upon the ISA judging criteria.

Judges will be looking at:

  • The difficulty of tricks
  • Diversity of the run – showing a variety of tricks and using the park to its full capability with varied or original lines.
  • Consistency – points are deducted for crashes, foot slips and sketchy lands.
  • Style – Landing cleanly, riding confidently, making tricks look easy and effortless and showing originality.

Phil first discovered scooter riding in 2010 through his involvement within the action sports industry. Having shown an enthusiasm towards scooter riding and a passion to help the sport, it wasn’t long before he became known within the scooter industry. In 2011 an opportunity arose that would see Phil set up the ISA and start to pull the sport together.

Since then, Phil has worked with hundreds of businesses and riders to oversee multiple world championships. This has helped in uniting the sport and exposing it to millions of people worldwide.

Phil is the chairman of the association and responsible for supporting and developing the board.

Suzie Harris
Suzie HarrisBoard Member
Suzie is from the USA and became involved with the Industry in 2011 when her son Colton began riding Scooters. She has been an Elementary School Teacher for 21 years and has a passion for working with individuals with Disabilities. She became known by riders and Industry leaders as Crazy Scooter Mom when she was instrumental in working with the City of Bakersfield, California to allow scooters in the public parks in her town. This decision was made in 2014 after countless hours of time at the parks and meeting with City Officials. During this time she realized there was a need for a safe place for riders to practice and progress in the sport. In August of 2015, she and her husband Jeff opened Ronka Underground Skatepark, a 16,000 sq ft park and retail store. Unfortunately, the park was closed in October 2018, but she is confident knowing that the lives she impacted through the development of Ronka will continue to grow. During the 3 years with Ronka, Suzie organized 20 competitions while successfully implementing and aligning ISA scoring and judging criteria. Her passion for working with Individuals with Disabilities, was evident when she incorporated events at the park to meet their needs. Ronka was known as the only Park in California to allow and encourage WCMX riders. Many Wheelchair riders visited the park and practiced their sport during Ronka’s 3 years of operation. She has gained respect from riders, families and Industry Leaders Worldwide and is continuing to do her part in seeing the Industry grow.
