WAISA uses the ISU Judging System. Judges and Technical Panel are required to conduct a competition. WAISA requires ex-skaters or skating savvy volunteers to train as judges and officials. There are also official positions that require less skating knowledge such as data operator, video replay assistant etc.

Email the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are interested in helping with any of these positions.


Under the ISU Judging System the Judges focus entirely on evaluating the quality of each element performed (technical aspect) and the quality of the performance.

Their scores will be based on specific quality criteria for each element and will provide a comprehensive assessment of each skater’s skills and performance, without comparing each skater in relation to all others. The Judge enters the scores through a touch screen unit. 

Technical Panel

The Technical Panel is composed of the Technical Controller, the Technical Specialist and the Assistant Technical Specialist, each one from different ISU Members (countries). A Data Operator assists them for recording purposes. An instantaneous slow-motion video replay system operated by a Replay Operator supports the Technical Panel in the identification of the performed elements.

The Technical Specialist, assisted by the Assistant Technical Specialist, identifies and calls the performed elements and the specific Levels of Difficulty of certain performed elements (e.g. Spins, Footwork,). He/She identifies illegal or additional elements, identifies falls and adds, if applicable, innovative elements.

The Technical Controller authorises or corrects all calls, supervises the Data Operator and can propose corrections, if necessary.
