X Games Invite Criteria

X Games Invite Criteria

  • 1) Gold medalist from previous summer X Games is an automatic invite.
  • 2) Other medalists from previous summer X Games will be strongly considered.
  • 3) Competition Results - All Major events, domestic and international, will be looked at to select athletes.
  • 4) Media Exposure - A Rider who has gained considerable media exposure and/or outstanding performance in print, web, film, DVD or TV.
  • 5) Legendary Status- Riders with exceptional competitive history and with the ability to compete at world class level will be considered.
  • 6) Ability to skate all sections of an X Games style/size course.
  • 7) Selected Riders must have the desire and ability to compete in the X Games.
  • 8) Selected Riders must have ability to travel to Austin, Texas (responsible for own travel and lodging).
  • 9) Injured Riders - If a rider is injured before final selections are made, the committee may replace that rider with any rider it so chooses.
  • 10) If the rider is injured after the final selection date, the 1st alternate will go in and another alternate may be added with ESPN X Games' permission.

The Selection Committee(s) members are some of the most involved in the female skateboarding scene, but if you or someone you know feel you meet the criteria to compete and have not been considered for X Games, then you may submit a nomination to The Alliance. The Alliance will forward nominations to the Selection Committee. Although all rider nominations will be considered, no final selections are guaranteed. Information about the Selection Committee members can be found here.
