Happy to be a part of building this education platform. As Judges Coordinator, this team that worked with education have done great work during the summer. Thanks to all of them.

International Snowboard Judge Instructor (CAN)

Marcello Centurione

Been in the game a long time and I love sharing my years of experience with other judges at all levels. What motivates me is to keep finding ways to improve and raise the bar of judging, finding ways to improve the tools and techniques we currently use and educate broadly to raise knowledge and awareness. Always keeping an open mind towards the sport, how we judge, and the perspectives of others involved in our amazing sport.

Magnus Ferry

I began my judging career in Freestyle skiing in the beginning of 2000s with the first EC mogul competitions in 2003 and have later also judged a lot of Freeski competitions with the first WC in 2009. I am currently the Technical Committee Chair for Freestyle Skiing in the FISU (International university Sport Federation) and was the Head judge at the Universiades in 2013 and 2015. As a teacher and researcher in sport science at the Department of Education at Umeå University in Sweden, and instructor on a numerous of national judging clinics, I think this platform is going to be a good tool for educating judges on all levels

Welcome to FIS online education. It is my great pleasure working with you. Although it is a little different from usual FIS judges clinics, you find all the items you need to know before you go up to the judge stand for the events. Please take your time, enjoy, and get ready for this coming winter season.
