Scoring at the Regionals will be the same as at the Games. Every event will be worth up to 100 points, and teams earn points based on their finish (see chart). At the end of the weekend, the team with the most points is the winner. Teams that tie receive the same number of points. If a team fails to complete an event within the time cap (for timed events), its score will be capped and it will receive a 1-second penalty for each rep not completed.
Minimum Work Requirement
Some events will have a minimum work requirement. For those events, if a team fails to meet the minimum work requirement, it will not be eligible to move on to the next event. Teams must continue to work to complete all the repetitions until the time cap expires.
