In addition to individual medals being awarded in slalom, tricks, jumping and overall, an overall team title will be at stake. Team scoring will be calculated from all of the age divisions combined, per the IWWF 35+ competition rules. The best five team scores from each event (in the preliminaries or the finals) – but with a maximum of two scores from the age categories – are added together to obtain the team score.
