Rules Update
In the effort of simplifying scoring, we are implementing some changes for 2008.

For complete rules, click

The changes are that we are going to use 6 judges rather than 8.
These 6 judges will score the on the subjective criteria as always.
We will
NOT have the 2 Technical Difficutly judges scoring the difficulty of the figure.
That score will be represented in the overall appearance score.

CRITERIA                         MAXIMUM SCORE        PERCENTAGE OF TOTAL SCORE                                  JUDGE TYPE               

SYNCHRO                                     5                                   33.33%                                                                    SUBJECTIVE JUDGE

SKI TECHNIQUE                          5                                   33.33%                                                                    SUBJECTIVE JUDGE

OVERALL APPEARANCE            5                                  33.33%                                                                     SUBJECTIVE JUDGE

TOTAL                                           15                                 100%

The score will be out of 90 rather than 80 as in the past.
Each of the 6 judges will score on the 3 categories out of 5 in increments of 0.5  (eg, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, etc..)
The high and low scores will NOT be discarded.
Mandatory deductions will be multiplied by 4 having the effect of being taken from 4 of the 6 judge's

Then the scores will be awarded according to rank.

1st     100
2nd     95
3rd      90
4th      85
5th      80


There is also a proposal from the German team for a mandatory deduction.
the suggestion is that we paint a finish line near the bottom and there should be a mandatory deduction for
the team that doesn't have at least the leader pass that line on the stop.
Please let us know your opinion of this additional rule.
