ISA Women’s Judging Program Application

The International Surfing Association (ISA) is pleased to announce the 2020 Women’s Judging Program to train and develop female surf judges from around the world.

The ISA Women’s Judging Program will run from December 1-3, 2020 and is open to women from around the world with an interest in surf judging to apply. The program is subsidized by the ISA and is free for the women selected to participate. The requirements for participation are:

  • Women age 18+
  • Endorsement by your National Surfing Federation
  • Interest in surf judging (surf judging experience is a plus but not a requirement)

The extended virtual program will be presented by ISA Technical Director Erik Krammer in collaboration with Tory Gilkerson, the ISA’s leading female judge in the world and only woman on the Olympic Judging Panel. The course will include technical judging details from the ISA Judging and Officiating Course with additional information and topics to be covered by Erik, Tori and the ISA.

The ISA has identified the need to increase the number of female technical officials worldwide and is taking steps in this direction. Former competitors, current female judges, and women with an interest in judging are encouraged to apply. Following completion of this program and further evaluation, the ISA will identify candidates for consideration in future development opportunities, such as shadow judging/spotting at ISA events, with a goal of future inclusion on ISA Judging panels during ISA World Championship events.
The application will be open until Friday November 20th. The selected participants will be notified the following week.
