About The Freestyle World Rankings|
Freestyle ranking points are awarded for any tournament with four or more players. Points are awarded
based on the final place of each team or player and the size of the tournament. A player's top 8 tournament results over the previous 24 months are used to determine his/her ranking.
Players also earn bonus points for defeating players ranked in the top 200. See details below.
Below are brief
explanations of the point scales used to create the rankings list.
To add your tournament to the Freestyle Rankings, send your results using contact information at
the Freestyle Flying Disc website, or use the Shrednow contact form.
To insure that all players get the points they are entitled to, please include results
from each round of play and the first and last name of each player. Incomplete player names
cannot be awarded ranking points.
Tournaments are categorized by importance and player turnout to determine the number of points.
Most tournaments are considered Regular category events. Any Regular even with 20 or more entrants receives maximum
points. Points are reduced if there are fewer than 20 entrants.
Pro events offer more ranking points than basic tournaments.
Pro events include continental championships, national championships outside North America and Europe, plus select internationally-
significant events. Currently, Paganello is the only Pro tournament
which is not a national championship. One national championship event per country is allowed to be designated a Pro event.
The FPA Worlds offers the most points of any event. In fact, the FPA Worlds counts as two tournaments. Players
can earn two separate Open Rankings point totals at the worlds, one for the Open Pairs division and one for the Open Co-op division.
For the Women's rankings, any event a woman competes in, no matter the division, counts toward the Women's Rankings.
No bonus points (see below) are counted toward the Women's Rankings.
