Event Selection State Team Rules:

  • If a child has won a medal at the regionals then they need to do the same event at States
  • If both kids has done an event at regionals ( but no medals ) and qualified for states preference is given to them for States. If they don't want to continue then it will be opened up for others.
  • Remaining events will be opened up for every one and we will try to give 2 preference of their choice including the medal won at regionals.

In case one of the team qualifies for states the below rules are taken in consideration for forming the State Team:

Here are the rules for qualifying to States Touranment.

  • We will combine both the teams if one of the teams qualify for states.
  • Only 15 members can go to the States Tournament
  • kids who have won medals will be qualified to be in the team ( since they are in top 6 )
  • To select the remaining members after top 6, each winning sub team member is given the total points depending on the positions in each of the 3 events. We will select the members who has the highest rankings. People who are doing 3 events are given extra points than people who are doing 1 or 2 events.

Definitions - SubTeam - Group of 2 or 3 kids participating in an event in either team.
