  • Academies/teams with multiple competitive teams will be split by co-ed, all-female, all-male, unless they asked to combine their scores

THE
EQUATION
  • Teams receive a score for any placing

  • Equation is based on quality/strength of placings

  • Similar to NCAA's RPI with strength of win accounted for and a constant value built in to equation

  • Placing teams get a base score for placing, plus a strength of win factor

  • A team's average placing per competition heavily influences their score

RANKINGS
& LINEUP
  • Rankings determined by teams' per-competition score average

    • Total points/number of comps​

  • Scores lock March 2020

  • Top 7 scores are guaranteed an invitation to Championships 2019

    • Top 7 teams are treated equally​

  • Teams who compete once are not considered for 7 guaranteed invites​

  • 3 Wild Card spots are available to any team, at the committee's discretion

Per-Comp Score = base score + k (sum of WPP)

base score: 1st place = 10, 2nd place = 7, 3rd place = 4, no place = 0

k: an arbitrary value to demonstrate the strength of a win or lineup

WPP: weighted placing percentage, or an average of a teams' placings throughout a season. this value is fluid through a season. 1st place = 100%(1.0), 2nd place= 70%(0.7), 3rd place = 40%(0.4), no place = 0. *exclusive competition results are included in WPP, but no per-comp score is given.

sum of WPP: this demonstrates how we equate "strength" of a win. by adding the placing percentages of teams you beat, we can see how strong a placing is.
