Each year, we hold the Grind for Life Awards at The Boardr HQ in Tampa. The results for each category are calculated as follows:
All events you enter are assigned a point value in The Boardr Global Ranking System. The GFL Awards are calculated in a similar manner, but factor in only GFL events. For 2017, your best three placings for the year count towards calculating your GFL Season Ranking. In 2016, all stops counted, but since the series expanded nationally in 2017, we are now only including your best three stops.
Your age as of the Awards date (November 10, 2017) is used for your age group category. This eliminates complexities with certain skaters advancing to a new age category within the year.
For anyone who enters a Sponsored or Girls Division during the year, they're separated and calculated as a group just for those divisions since there's no age breakdown. Basically, if you enter a Sponsored division at any time during the year, you're considered Sponsored for the entire year. Because of that, if you're thinking of moving up to a Sponsored Division, you should do it at the beginning of the year, not in the middle or the end.
Below are top 10 results so far for 2017 in each category.
