#1 - 10 MAY 2021: 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 - 10 FEB 2021: Major Change in SOP - Virtual Meet Declared - Addendum SOP Posted
NJROTC HQ has made the call to forgo an on-site meet on base and move to a virtual competition format. The original SOP is still in effect, however an SOP addendum has been prominently posted on the SOP & score sheet page. Attending schools are urged to download and review. Additional information will be forthcoming but this document sets the parameters for what will be the format of the 2021 Virtual Navy Nationals.
#3 - 10 FEB 2021: Slight Changes have been made in the Cadence/Penalty Score Sheets and Color Guard Score Sheets
Minor changes have been made to the two sheets listed above. Schools are encouraged to review ALL of their score sheets to ensure they meet with the corrected versions posted on this website as these will be the official sequences & sheets in use by the judges at the 2021 Navy Nationals.
#4 - 21 MAR 2021: MAJOR CHANGE Allowed for COVID Accommodation in both the RELAY and CURL-UP Events
One or two schools have mentioned they may need to gain a waiver for both the RELAY event and the Curl-up event due to contact with another cadet OR an object touched by another cadet. While both SNI and the CDC believe this risk is virtually non-existent (they allow people to play volleyball and basketball so evidently touching THOSE ITEMS is ok!), to ensure all schools can compete fairly and safely, two modifications to existing regs CAN BE IMPLEMENTED BY YOUR SCHOOL WITHOUT GAINING ANY APPROVALS from SNI or Area Managers.
- ONE: On the 16-person Team Relay event, if passing a baton between runners is something your current school district policy forbids, teams may elect to have runners #2 thru #16 start just behind the line
(in a position similar to start of the push-up competition). When the preceding runner crosses the line to end their leg of running, the next runner may take off from the ground without any contact with the preceding runner; in the DOWN position on the ground
- TWO: During curl-ups where school district policy may preclude the touching of the feet of another person, teams MAY if they wish devise a method to have an object holding the cadets foot down or to drape the feet with a towel from the holder. This could be a baseball bat, a pipe, a board, or other object that would provide the resistance needed to accomplish the task without the physical touching of the shoes of the competition cadet by the assisting cadet. This may take TWO PEOPLE to correctly accomplish and this is blanket approved. (
Adapt, improvise, overcome.
.) NOTE: ONLY THE FEET may still be held
#5 - 25 MAR 2021: Schools Seeking any Form of Variance from the Posted Rules Start with their Area Manager
Any schools seeking to have a variance from any of the posted rules for the event must start their ask DIRECTLY WITH THEIR AREA MANAGER. To speed things along, you can CC: the email also to SNI (firstname.lastname@example.org) but the final call on these items largely falls to the Area Manager.
#5 - 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.
