Anti-Doping Policy

Points are awarded to participants who are placed in the top 42 at the end of the competition. These points count towards the world rankings for the World Skate championships (men and women) and thus also count towards qualifying for the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games. If you want to compete for a place in the Olympic games, then it is of utmost importance that you adhere to the Anti-Doping rules. You must also obtain certain qualifying medals (i.e. bronze and/or silver for national and gold for international competitions). You will find more details about how this works and how you can obtain the relevant qualifying medals in the participant’s letter that each participant receives following their registration.

COVID-19 Measures

Due to the coronavirus crisis, the Nokia BK Skateboarding Street competition will be a different experience this year. There will be no spectators and all participants must adhere to strict COVID-19 protocols. The following rules apply to all participants:

  • Participants must register in advance via the registration procedure set out on the website. Every participant will receive an explanation and instructions as to what measures are in force.
  • Upon arrival, there will be temperature checks. A triage system will be in place.
  • Participants must sign a statement, in which they declare that they agree with the measures that will be in place during the Nokia BK Skateboarding Street competition. Failure to comply or refusal to follow directions from staff may result in disqualification.
  • Participants must always keep a distance of 1.5 meters from one another. Nokia BK Skateboarding staff members will supervise this rule in the transit area between the courtyard and the track. Instructions of Nokia BK Skateboarding staff members must be followed at all times!
  • Certain formalities will take place outside the competition area, such as temperature checks, finalizing registration, catering (drinks only), press moments, etc.
  • Participants must adhere to all instructions regarding walking routes, bathroom facilities and catering.

Note: If the government imposes changes to safety measures that affect the Nokia BK Skateboarding competition, we will adjust the program and format accordingly. We will of course inform you of the possible changes as soon as possible.

All participants will be divided into age groups: U13s – U16s – over 16s – MEN – WOMEN. We have assigned each age group a specific time slot. When finalizing registrations at the entrance, participants will receive a colored wristband whose color corresponds to a specific time slot. Participants are not allowed into the venue at any other time other than the time slot designated by their wristband’s color. Participants can present themselves at the entrance up to 30 minutes before their time slot. All participants must leave the venue within 15 minutes of their time slot being over.
