WHY DOES ISA EXIST?

The International Slackline Association was officially founded as a non-profit in August 2015 by a collection of slackliners from around the world who are passionate about the community, sharing resources, and promoting slacklining in all forms.

The ISA aims to gather all national governing bodies, their regional and local slackline associations and clubs as members.

More than 10 Slackline Gear Manufacturers have already joined as ISA Partners. Together we are building Gear Quality Labels for the future of the sport.

Slacklining has also grown to be an independent sport. All around the world slacklining is becoming a part of school ciriculums, university/college sports and very pronounced in small groups and city club trainings. The show aspect of slacklining with athletes professionalising is a natural developement within the slackline community. Hundreds of Shows and Contests are held all around the world from local to world stage every year. For Athletes the ISA also records achievements and curates for guiness world records.

Join an ISA Commission.

National federations (Germany, Switzerland, Austria,..) and private companies have started to educate slackliners on different levels. Slackline instructor courses for starters always will be held locally, based on requirements from national education programs and its connected finanzing. We are coordinating efforts to build instructor courses on a national level and herefore are working on the creation of a ISA education commission. Internationally we are planning a ISA Riggers Certificate and will also be working on getting Judges liscensed in the future.
