We have updated the rubric to determine the team qualification for the Teams competition in 2023. Within each category, the top 6 scoring athletes women and men combined will qualify for the team. Exceptions may be made in rare cases for extenuating circumstances that prevent an athletes from competing in an event (injury, family emergency, etc.) In such cases, the athlete must submit a written request to Wolfgang in advance of the missed competition supporting their inclusion, which may then be shared with the board, other athletes, and the general public. The head coach will convene the board within 48 hours of the missed competition to determine the proper course of action, which may include granting the athlete points based on their prior history in USAWGF competition events and/or submitted video content.

The top 10 athletes will receive points based on their ranking for each event, difficulty scores, and competition history.

Competition Ranking Points:

  • Event A: Rank 1 receives 20 points , Rank 2 receives 18, Rank 3 receives 16, and so on

  • Event B: Rank 1 receives 30 points, Rank 2 receives 27, Rank 3 receives 24, and so on

  • Event C: Rank 1 receives 30 points, Rank 2 receives 27, Rank 3 receives 24, and so on

Difficulty Points: (Athletes will receive these points a maximum of one time across all three competitions)

  • For performing a straight-line routine with at least 5 elements C or higher: 5 points

  • For performing  a straight-line routine with at least 2 elements D or higher: 5 points

  • For performing a spiral routine with at least 4 elements C or higher: 5 points

 

The athletes will receive the difficulty points at each discipline at every qualifying completion “except vault“

  • Competition history: (past 5 years, not including the three qualifying events for 2023)

  • 2 points for each World Championships

  • 1 point for each National qualifying competition
