1 Competition System Competition Committee November 2013

2 Background The fundamental reason for developing a new competition structure is to provide more competitive opportunities for more boccia athletes. We expect the current plan to develop and mature, and welcome further feedback. The background to how the plan has evolved is: Agreement by the CPISRA members present at the 2012 General Assembly meeting that a new system was needed Preparation of a draft proposal by BISFed s Competition Committee which was published on the website for comment by members in April 2013; this was updated in July and again in November 2013 following further consultation with BISFed members Subsequent discussion with the IPC over the requirements for the 2016 Paralympic Games. As a result, the current plan aligns the BISFed system with the IPC s requirements and clarifies the Paralympic Pathway. We have agreed with the IPC that for the 2016 Paralympic Games: Boccia will have 108 competitors (London 104) There will be 7 medal events (same as London) There will be a minimum of 28 female competitors Ranking points for qualification to the Paralympic Games will be accumulated starting in 2014 BISFed is still discussing the precise competition format (e.g. number of pools and matches) for the 2016 Paralympic Games with the IPC, but this is not expected to change significantly from what is outlined here 2

3 Update Based on the feedback received from BISFed members and our discussions with the IPC, we have made the following modifications to the competition system which was published in July 2013: World Ranking System: the IPC s requirement is that qualification to Rio 2016 must be based on a ranking system using events from 2014 onwards. Following a period of consultation with BISFed members, we have agreed the design of a new BISFed world ranking system, and plan to implement the new ranking system by 31 st January 2014 Open Events: We plan to have a minimum of 2 Open Events per Region between 1 Jan 2014 and 31 March At least 3 member nations must participate for an Open event to be sanctioned Continental Cups are single region events, and where possible should align with larger multi sport events being held in the Region. The Para-Asian and Para-Pan American Games will be classed as Continental Cups for BISFed s Competition System. There will be a Continental Cup for Europe and one for Africa / Oceania Automatic qualification: automatic qualification slots will be awarded to the member nation/npc. Therefore if an individual secures an automatic qualification slot, this will be awarded to their nation. This will ensure that members selection policies will remain unaffected and that each member can make selections based on current performance 3

4 Vision BISFed s Competition System should mature and enable the sport to develop by increasing the quality and quantity of available competitions by This plan aims to develop the fundamental aspects of a successful Competition System by It will achieve the vision by: revising and expanding the competition system providing a competition entry pathway for new athletes implementing a revised qualification process for the Rio 2016 Paralympics developing a new ranking system The success of the new system will depend, in part, on members desire and ability to host competitions 4

5 Competition System The competition system will include three tiers of competition. The tiers should: provide opportunities for developing nations to attend international events describe the projected pathway into the sport for new athletes provide opportunities for leading nations to attend more competitions provide a weighting value to competitions for ranking calculations define the regional structure for competition: > Asia & Oceania, America & Africa, Europe provide a foundation for further development of the system from

17 Ranking System: Summary The Competition Committee have concluded their investigations in to developing and implementing a revised world ranking system. The committee have concluded that: specific adjustments are required to the existing ranking system (formerly used by CPISRA) developing a new world ranking system would take significant time and resources The Competition Committee therefore used the following principles to supplement the existing world ranking system that BISFed inherited from CP-ISRA: event co-efficient values should be aligned with the competition system tiers and the values will decay on a consistent basis each calendar year until they reach a minimum value of one (1). events will have a limited period of eligibility, in part to assist BISFed in complying with the IPC s policy that only results achieved after 1 st Jan 2014 are eligible for qualification to Rio the period of eligibility should be two (2) calendar years following the year of the event. for specific events, qualification deadlines will be set where the world ranking list will be captured and used to determine qualification for the identified event. the existing points system will be adapted and a minimum and maximum points total for 1 st place will be defined that will be specific to the competition system tier of an event a licensed athlete or member nation s team / pair will be ranked on up to their best four results, where a best result is defined as the result(s) which provide the greatest number of points after an event co-efficient value has been applied. 17

18 Ranking System: Principles Event Co-Efficient Values The following event co-efficient values will be applied to the related BISFed events: Tier A: Major World Events = co-efficient value of 2 Tier B: Regional Qualification Events = co-efficient value of 1.5 Tier C: BISFed Sanctioned Events = co-efficient value of 1 Period of Eligibility This is defined from completion of the event during the year it is held, plus two additional calendar years. The event retains it s initial co-efficient until 30 th December of the 1 st additional calendar year Qualification Deadlines The following deadlines will apply for the specified events: 2014 World Championships 1 st January Asian Continental Cup (Para-Asian Games) 31 st August Regional Qualifier 30 th April Americas Continental Cup (Para-Pan Americas) TBC 2015 European Continental Cup TBC 2015 Combined Continental Cup TBC 2016 World Individual Championships 1 st January Paralympic Games 30 th April

19 Ranking System: Principles Ranking Point Allocation The Competition Committee have proposed some specific alterations to the existing ranking point allocation system and they have specified the upper and lower allocation limits for an event depending on the event s competition system tier (i.e. A, B or C). The changes suggested are detailed in the world ranking system proposal document and summarised below: Tier A: Major World Events Based on the existing points allocation formula, a bonus of 1 point is awarded at each level. Therefore, in an event with eight (8) entries (i.e. BC3 Pair at Paralympics), 1 st place will be worth 12 points rather than 11 points, as was the case the previous system. The maximum points available will be 16 points, where the event has 24 or more entrants. Tier B: Regional Qualification Events The maximum points allocation to a Team or Pair events is 13 points, where there are 14 or more entries in the events. For individual events, the maximum points allocation will be 15 points, where there are 28 or more entries in the event. Tier C: BISFed Sanctioned Events A maximum of 11 points will be awarded to 1 st place in any Team, Pair or Individual event with seven (7) or more entrants. 19
