Below are the event update/clarifications that have been implemented since
the initial posting of all event materials. These items listed below are found
in inverse chronological order to their date of implementation.
#1 - 25 July 2018: Update Page Set-up, Initial Items Posted
The website has been set with SOP and Scoresheets. Floor Diagrams remain unchanged from past years and are posted as well. Other items will be added in the coming months with the School Folder and other later needed items coming online NLT December 10th.
#2 - 25 July 2018: Major Change in Pause Procedures, Clearing the Inside of the Oval Track from Non-Competitors
This is not an "update" but a point of emphasis. The Color Guard and Basic Sequences no longer have a five-second pause. Teams will now execute the pause and remain stationary until directed to continue the sequence by the head judge. Also, in 2019 and beyond the only personnel allowed inside the oval relay track are those competitors and a team coach that are COMPETING in the heat being run. All other teams and spectators will warm-up and wait for their heat to be run outside the oval. Please read the SOP carefully for other more minor changes.
