Point System: Each contestant in each division will earn points at every contest, even if you don’t place. Your points will be totaled up from every contest you enter and the 30 skaters with the most points in their Division will be invited to skate in the AmSlam Finals. Keep in mind, you don’t necessarily have to skate in every event to be the points leader in your division. In fact, it is perfectly possible to skate in just ONE event and still make the top 30 for the finals! Point totals will be posted on www.sundiego.com after each event.
