The World Rookie Tour established in 2006 as an international snowboard tour for youngsters, and it created a link between the rookies and pro. Starting from 2019 the WRT developed in a multi sport platform with the implementation of Freeski and Skateboard tours.

The 2021 World Rookie Tour Skateboarding is dedicated to male and female skateboarders, divided in two age categories: Rookies (born from 1st January 2000 till 31st December 2005) and Grom (born from 1st January 2006 and younger).

Qualifing Criteria to the World Rookie Finals Skateboard:
– top 3 riders, both male and women, rookie and grom, from each previous qualifying event.
– every nation is allowed to nominate 4 riders (3 menand 1 woman)
– qualification by ranking: to be announced
– wild cards: WRT can assign up to 8 wild cards for the final.

World Rookie Rank
In the 2021 season there is also an important new element: the Skateboard World Rookie Rank! It is a ranking developed as an entry criteria for the World Rookie Skateboard Finals and as a base for National Rookie Ranks. During the World Rookie Tour, every event assigns valuable points for World Rookie Rank.

More information about World Rookie Rank will be available soon.
