Who is eligible for the All Around Champion contest?
Any athlete, regardless of residency or competition level, may enter the All Around competition. (This is a separate competition from the Athlete of the Year Qualifier.)
Determining the winner:
The overall winner in each group will be determined using place points: 1st Place = 1 points, 2nd Place = 2 points, 3rd Place = 3 points, etc. For example, an athlete placing 1st in Solo (1 points), 4th in Strut (4 points), and 2nd in Two Baton (2 points) would have a total of 1+4+2=7 points. The athlete with the fewest place points in each division will be the All Around Champion. A tie in place points will be broken by combining total scores in all events.
Awards will be presented to athletes finishing in the top 5. The overall winner of each group will receive an All Around Champion Sash and award.
Other important information:
The events for the All Around Champion competition are separate from all other individual events. So, an entry in the All Around competition enters an athlete in the events listed above, and ONLY athletes entered in the All Around competition will compete in each of those events. Athletes entered in the All Around competition may also choose to enter the same events in the Regional (if eligible) and/or Open competition.
*The contest director reserves the right to combine or separate age groups as warranted by the entries.
The collegiate twirling event is performed by any individual, enrolled and matriculating in a college or university (undergraduate or graduate). The athlete will use one or multiple batons (only standard batons can be used – no flags, knives, streamers, hoops, etc) to the university fight song and a powerful musical selection of the athlete's choice. The collegiate twirling event should reflect the type of material utilized on the field by displaying musicality, movement across the field/competition floor, and presentation to the audience with the addition of one or multiple batons.
The Collegiate Champion will be awarded a Collegiate Champion sash and award.
