ALL EYES ON YOU. Cheering and dancing carry equal weight in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition.
Two seasons ago, the UAAP introduced a new scoring system for its Cheerdance Competition.
While the traditional system had final scores ranging from one to 100, the new system ran up to 800 and was comprised of several scores independent of one another.
Now we are in the 2015 UAAP Cheerdance Competition, just how exactly will this scoring system work for our favorite teams?
- The first thing to understand is that judges will be split into two panels with four members each: one is the cheer panel and one is the dance panel.
- The cheer panel will further be broken down into four categories: stunts, pyramids, tosses, and tumbling. All four categories will have be overseen by an individual judge who will focus on his own category and give a score with a maximum of 100.
- The four judges in the dance panel will abide by a criteria of Overall Effect (10 points), Choreography (30 points), Technique (40 points), and Group Execution (20 points) as they each give a score with a maximum of 100.
- Adding up the scores from the four cheer panel judges and the four dance panel judges, each squad may garner up to 800 points.
- However, a separate judge will also be on the lookout for any errors. A minor mistake entails a one-point deduction while a major mistake entails a three-point deduction.
- The final score will be gotten by subtracting the deductions, if any, from the combined scores from the eight-member panel.
