The 2020 Virtual Kicker Comp
Host: Cable Wakeboard UK
We are excited to announce a series of one-star national online events, in line with the IWWF Online Competition guidelines. Virtual competitions are a safe and secure alternative allowing us to run competitions safely through Covid19 and stay within government guidelines. The virtual competitions will be open to all British Athletes and free to enter, and you will receive national ranking points.
The competitions are open to new and experienced riders. We will post all of the entries online (using our social media channels) at the end of the competitions. Our Judging Panel will meet (virtually) once all the entries are in and will judge using the existing rules. We will be running virtual podiums to celebrate the successes. The results will be posted on this Website and on Social Media within 48hrs of the competition end.
