The Course and Scoring:
The UNAA has a point system for scoring.
There will be a maximum of 3 Fails per course. After 3 Fails, the athlete's run is over. They may finish the course but will not receive a score for the remaining obstacles.
Their time will end with the last Obstacle Completed. Each Obstacle will be worth 1 point for full completion. For more difficult obstacles, each obstacle can be worth 2 points and have a halfway point, which must be clearly marked with a tape mark or other. Completion of halfway is worth 1 point and is NOT considered a Fail. But a 1-point Completion.
The score is then determined by points gained, and the time of full run. Points are the highest priority when determining the final score with time being a second priority. Most points, with the fastest time wins. We no longer will offer a RETRY. Finish or fail an obstacle and move on to the next.
Some examples of a halfway mark: worth 1 point.
Salmon ladder- 3 rungs out of 6 rungs
Peg Board- Peg in the 10th hole out of 20 holes
20 ft Rope Climb- hand goes past the 10ft mark
It is up to the discretion of the gym to determine 2-point obstacles, but we Highly recommend trying to incorporate as many as possible, up to 50% of the course. This is to create boundaries of Fair Play and more opportunities to incorporate harder obstacles without the worry of all athletes failing it…. But to push those athletes to attempt those more difficult obstacles.
This deters athletes that want to Skip the difficult obstacles but will reward those that at least TRY to get one point.
If the athlete times out before completing the last obstacle, time is reverted to the last obstacle completed.
ALL athletes must begin at the starting point of each obstacle (i.e. trampoline; box; platform; starting line) before moving on to the next obstacle.
What is a Fail?
If it is a 1-point obstacle, and they do NOT complete the obstacle, it is a FAIL.
If it is a 2-point obstacle, and they do NOT get to the Halfway Mark, it is a FAIL, but if they get to or surpass the halfway mark and fall before completing the obstacle it is NOT a fail. It is awarded as a 1-point completion. Complete obstacle, 2 points.
Qualifying Rules: Areas
The top 3 or 50% of each class will advance to Regionals.
In the case of an odd number we round down so that athlete must beat 50% or more of the class
General climbing chalk and general athletic tape are allowed. We recommend liquid chalk as it is alcohol-based and also acts as a sanitizer.
