MAXIMUM – 1.75
When multiple deductions should be assessed during a stunt or toss (by a single group), or during a pyramid transition,then the sum of those deductions will not be greater than 1.75
BOUNDARY VIOLATIONS- .25
The performance surface is defined as the 42’ x 54’ competition floor. The competition boundary is defined as the performance surface and any immediate adjacent safety border. A .25 deduction will be assessed per occurrence for an athlete that makes contact with both feet outside the competition boundary. Stepping on, or just past the white tape is not a boundary violation.
TIME LIMIT VIOLATIONS – .25
Teams that exceed 2:30 will be subject to the following deduction:
• 1 or more seconds over time will result in a .25 deduction
The routine time limit is 2:30. Routines that exceed this time limit run a risk of being assessed a deduction. Judges will use a stop watch or similar device to measure the official time. Acknowledging the potential variance caused by human reaction speed and sound system time variations, judges will not issue a deduction until their stopwatch/clock shows a time that exceeds 2:33. Entrances and Exits are not timed. However, timing does begin with the first organized movement or beat of music. Any organized entrances/exits will be timed. This includes team breaks, rituals, chants etc.
- 0.50 – Tumbling skills performed out of level and General Safety Guidelines will be issued a 0.50 deduction.
- 1.0 – Building skills performed out of level will be issued a 1.0 deduction.
IMAGE POLICY – .25 Inappropriate choreography and/or music, as well as violations that break the image policy will be issued a .25 deduction.
UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT DEDUCTION – 1.0
When a coach is in discussion with an official, other coaches, athletes and parents/spectators they must maintain proper professional conduct. Failing to do so may result in a 2.0 deduction, removal of coach, or disqualification.
WARNINGS Judges may issue a warning instead of a deduction if it is not clear that the rule violation had occurred or if it was a performance error vs, an obvious rule violation. This is up to the safety judges discretion and may not be argued.
Specialty Divisions Performers can only participate in 3 total specialty divisions due to scheduling and costuming issues.
