Over the past 10 years, TTR Pro Snowboarding and WSF have been working closely together with the joint objective to bring competitive freestyle snowboarding to a higher level of organization. Today, the TTR and WSF announce a new agreement that will extend the current partnership for the next three years into 2014.
TTR will continue to focus on the progression of higher level events and top riders and has granted the WSF the exclusive worldwide right to approve any grassroots events for the TTR World Snowboard Tour on the 1Star, 2Star and 3Star levels. The WSF will be offering a range of new services and will continue to work closely with National Snowboard Associations which will play an active role in evaluating, coordinating and handling all events on these levels.

WSF offers a national ranking system to all of its members and uses the same star category and points system as the TTR ranking. WSF also offers a national ranking for youth riders (boys/girls) in three different age categories; OPEN, ROOOKIE and GROM and for all disciplines. Eight nations used the national ranking system last season and report they are very satisfied. The national ranking system is based on results from national events at 1-2-3 star level. Only national riders can earn points for this special rank.
WSF Rookie ranking
WSF World Rookie ranking is more and more popular among the youngest riders. It is a ranking list for riders under 18 and all national competitions including this age category can be uploaded on this ranking.
