FACEOFF assists in facilitating field accommodation if possible and also helps negotiate the possibility of meals during the stay

Finances

Our goal in the long run, is to make our athletes professional. 
That’s why we have made a prize pool as big as financially possible for our company.
We hope it will continue to grow so we can help our athletes to become financially independent and, at one time, hopefully become part-time/full-time professional athletes.

Disciplines And Rulebook

General

FACEOFF x Individuals is a competition containing 3-4 disciplines. The competition admits 6-8 athletes who compete against each other for the title of FACEOFF x Individuals Champion.

Women’s competitions: 3 disciplines (Tumbling xXx, The Lottery and Double Trouble)

Men’s competition: 4 disciplines: (Tumbling xXx, The Lottery, The Plateau and Double Trouble )

 

Judges

Five judges will make the all-important decisions to choose who wins the battles and who will ultimately take home the title. One of these is also the discipline judge. The discipline judge is responsible for ensuring that criteria are met and scores are correct. Each of the five scoring judges’ votes weighs equally in the evaluation. 

General Judging

The competition is based on freedom and creativity, so the judges can judge a trick as they see fit. A score is to be given based on the athletes’ execution of a trick, ie. Elements of style, difficulty and landing. Creativity, ingenuity, showmanship, audience appeal and safety will also be components of the scoring. A judge’s score is subjective to the individual judge but must not be given from a personal or club-affiliated standpoint. They will judge only the gymnast’s performance.

 

An athlete must be in control when landing in the landing area. Falling without initial foot support will result in a significantly lower score. An unsafe or reckless trick will be discarded and rewarded 0 points.

In general, a trick/round will be judged with a score ranging from 0 to 10, 10 being the highest. The score for the individual trick/round will be calculated as the average of the 5 scores given by the judges. 

The counting scores from each discipline will be added to an athlete’s total score. 

Competition structure

The competition is divided into disciplines. The points that an athlete earns in each discipline are summed up into a total score. This total score will decide the starting order of the next discipline and, ultimately, the winner of the competition.
In disciplines 1-3, the female athletes will compete first, followed by the male athletes.

A TV screen will show the order of the participants on stage during the competition.

In the case of an equal amount of points for 1st place, the athlete will be ranked by the following principle:
