By Freddy Finner,  FPA Competition Director
The FPA Competition Director is responsible for all competition relevant issues. In my role, I direct the FPA Major Events such as FPAW and the continental championships and work together with the Tournament Directors to make sure events are run smoothly and successfully. At the tournaments the Competition Director acts as the Competition Supervisor and sometimes also as a Head Judge.
In addition, constant work is required to ensure that competition documentation such as the FPA Competition Manual, tournament bid applications and tournament volunteer descriptions are up to date and accurate.
I often lead committees like the FPA Competition Manual Committee, the FPA Judging Committee or the FPA Ranking Committee and I manage the World Event Calendar and coordinate dates for any freestyle events.
