2019 Navy Nationals
SOP Update/Clarification Page

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.

It could shape your
JROTC career forever

#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.

#3 - 26 March 2019: Emphasis on Not Saying "The Honorable" Within the NJROTC Chain of Command
This is not an "update" but a point of emphasis that came out during one of the Navy JROTC HQ conference calls and not the other two. For fairness, it is emphasized here as well for all. The term, "The Honorable" is NOT to be used when reciting information from the NJROTC Chain of Command. All schools should be VERY aware of this already as this has been emphasized numerous times and in numerous methods. Judges will be fully briefed on this point.

#4 - 26 March 2019: No further updates will be posted here for the upcoming event
No further updates will be posted. Anything that occurs at this point forward will be brought up likely on arrival. There is no further need to check this site as nothing will be posted for the 2016 competition. Good luck to all schools.

Thank You,
Justin Gates, Competition Director
