Rotation drawn; training and competition schedule finalized; programs tested; music and scripts for level 4s digitally submitted; fingers crossed – Score2u is as READY as can be! Documents (including rotations) are available for download here.
From a scoring perspective, the following two enhancements have been made:
- Carry over 25% of the score from the division round. This ‘additional’ piece of the score is added not just to the All Around score but to each apparatus and therefore affecting apparatus ranking. This portion of the code may be useful for Comp A and B for 2015 where it is rumored that apparatus ranking will use the cumulative score as well (versus just comp B currently).
- Instead of simply using the AA score from day 1 – the division round, the division process will use a derived score which reflects the averaged score (calculated as (AA score – high and low event score) times two). Furthermore, during the division process, the program hide the athlete names and province to ensure an impartial process.
Everyone in Team BC is ready both as an awesome host as well as a good competitor! Good luck everyone!
The following is for the purpose of raising awareness for the upcoming Special Olympics National Games for rhythmic gymnastics only:
- A total of 39 athletes and 16 coaches from 6 provinces and 1 Territory will participate over the two days of competition. AB – 3, MB – 3, NL – 1, ON – 12, QC – 4, BC – 16.
- All athletes must be 13 years of age as of the first day of competition. For generic, competition age is calculated using the age at the end of the calendar year (e.g. December 31st, 2014).
- The athletes are divided into 4 levels. Level 1 to 3 have compulsory routines. Level 4 have optional routines (meaning that each athlete will have her own choreographed routine)
- Special Olympics rhythmic gymnastics’s code of point changes once every 8 years. The current code was from 2009. 2015 will be the World Games and then 2016 will be the year with a new code for Special Olympics. For generic rhythmic gymnastics, the code changes after every Olympic.
- Within each level, athletes are divided into different divisions through a qualification round (day 1) based on abilities (i.e. scores from the qualification round). To reduce the impact of an unexpected drop or an exceptionally good routine affecting divisioning, the high and low scores are removed and the middle 2 scores are multiplied by 2.
- On the competition round, for ranking purposes, 25% of the actual scores from the qualification round will be carried over. Ranking uses this cumulative scores for apparatus award as well as all around ranking.
- For events less than 8 athletes, the division process do not apply and therefore level 4 with only 5 athletes will go straight to the competition round on day 1.
- Venue is at UBC Thunderbird Arena. Podium Training is on Thursday July 10th and starts around 8:00AM.
- The competition starts Friday and Saturday at 8:30AM. Competitions end 4:00PM on Friday and 2:30PM on Saturday. Do come and show support!
Score2u will be reporting results live at Four Continents (AGG) Championship and Koop Cup 2014.
This is the first Four Continent Championship for AGG with athletes from Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas.
Koop Cup covers rhythmic gymnastics and have individuals and group from Canada, Russia, Finland, USA, Mexico, Japan, Lithuania, Ukraine and Spain.
For scoring, one of the major differences between AGG and RG is that in addition to the Difficulty and Execution panel, AGG also have an artistic panel. To show the artistic panel, all you have to do is to go to >Special and set the checkbox for AV ON and click the “Modify View” button.
For apparatus finals, Koop Cup is applying a one per country rule while Four Continents apply a max of 2 per country rule. All these are configurable via the FINALS tab. However, the limitation is that a single parameter applies for everything within the workbook. Therefore, to keep things easy, scores are kept as two distinct events throughout.
Good luck to everyone!
New or improved features added to the scoring program as triggered by Pacific Rim:
- Add event logo – We need to add event logo as well as sponsors at the bottom. To make it easier, the program allows you to modify the templates for your competition. Please see below for sample.
- Finals for international events – This is not applicable for Elite nor Nationals because we have Competition A and B which have its own technical rules. For World Cup as well as Pacific Rim, they may want to do a draw by ranking in advance and get that published. The program now supports that if needed. Furthermore, the program allows the user explicitly paired up events if they do not want to use the default double panel logic. The program even reminds you to update the live score database after the finalists have been populated into the program.
- Team calculation – The program’s team calculation has been improved to include Team 6-5-4. Furthermore, it has logic to determine “Top club”, “Top province” as required at Canadian National Championship.
- Music Interface – the rotation order generated can be used by the music program.
