Competitors will reach the age in the present year (from 1st January to 31st December)

The athlete can compete in one higher age category

  • Aspirant can compete with Juniors, Juniors can compete with Seniors
  • The entire Junior category (of proper aged-athletes) can participate in the Senior category
  • No athletes having the age of less than 18 years old will be allowed to participate in the seniors’ World Championship of the JJIF. (By year of birth)
  • A competitor can participate in only one age category in the same tournament. Even if the competitions for Aspirants and Juniors are on different days, but within the same event, the same athlete cannot compete in both age categories.

Duo couples (Duo Show and Classics):
With respect to the ages of the athletes making up a Duo couple: the age difference between the partners is not important, provided that:

  • the age is considered according to the year of birth, not the actual birth date of the competitor
  • if the two couple members belong to different age categories, the couple will be registered for the highest age category
    (example: one 15 years old athlete (Aspirant) + 18 years old athletes (Junior) will participate in Juniors)
  • However, a team (duo) made up of one Aspirant and one Junior can only compete in Juniors, not also in Seniors (the Aspirant, although member of a Junior team, cannot jump over two age categories and compete with the Seniors)

JJIF Appeal Procedure

Appeal Committee of the Event

The Appeal Committee of the event is composed of 3 persons (1 from the local organizing committee), appointed by the JJIF Board.

Any member of the Appeal Committee is to be excluded from making any decisions if the participant involved is from the same country. An appeal fee of 200 EUR must be paid to the Organizer before the appeal is filed (this amount will be returned if appeal is successful). Appeal must be filed immediately after the situation occurs (a verbal announcement and filed on paper) so the organizer may halt the competition to prevent appealed situation to continue. The decision of the Appeal Committee is final.
