INTEGRITY POLICY

  • Teams should carry with them a full roster with the legal names and birth dates of every participant. 

  • Age verification may be requested at any time before, during, or after the event. 

  • Full out reserves the right to combine and split divisions as needed. 

  • We at Full out ask that you refrain from any foul language while in the competition venue. Coaches, Athletes, and Fans are prohibited from using any profanities at the event, in the warm-up room, at the judges’ table, or anywhere that might be inappropriate.

  • Scores will be released following the final team’s performance in any given division. Coaches will have 20 minutes from when score sheets are released to speak with judges about deduction and legalities. After 20 minutes, all scores are final. 

  • All athletes are required to wear uniform cover-ups if their uniform shows midriff. Cover-ups may be removed prior to warm-ups and must be put back on following each performance. 

  •  Full out reserves the right to refuse service to any coach, program, parent, athlete, spectator, or any individual attending events to ensure the safety of all involved.

INTERRUPTION OF PERFORMANCE POLICY

 

A. Unforeseen circumstances: If, in the opinion of the competition officials, a team’s

routine is interrupted because of failure of the competition equipment, facilities, or other factors attributable to the competition rather than the team, the team affected, or competition officials may stop the routine. The degree and effect of the interruption will be determined by the competition officials. The competition officials will determine if the team will be allowed to perform at a later time. If decided by officials, the team will perform the routine again in its entirety but will be evaluated ONLY from the point where the interruption occurred. The spot in the schedule where the re-performance is to take place is at the sole discretion of competition officials. 

 

B. Fault of Team: In the event a team’s routine is interrupted because of failure of the team’s own representative, is non-injury related, equipment and/or music related, the team must continue the routine. The degree and effect of the interruption will be determined by the competition officials and a possible penalty will be assessed. The competition officials will determine if the team will be allowed to perform at a later time. If decided by officials, the team will perform the routine again in its entirety but will be evaluated ONLY from the point where the interruption occurred. The spot in the schedule where the re-performance is to take place is at the sole discretion of competition officials. 

 

C. Injury:

 

1. The only individuals that may stop a routine for injury are: 

a. Competition officials, 

b. The club owner/head coach from the team performing, or 

c. An injured individual. 

 

2. The competition officials will determine if the team will be allowed to perform at a later time. If the competition officials allow a routine to be performed at a later time, the spot in the schedule where the re-performance is to take place is at the sole discretion of competition officials. If permitted to perform again the team must (pending the injury’s impact on the routine) perform the routine again in its entirety but will be evaluated ONLY from the point where the interruption occurred. 

 

3. If there is a medical emergency during the performance, the performance will be stopped, and the athletes will be taken care of with the utmost privacy. The medical staff will assess the individual and give updates as they have them. 

 

4. The injured athlete that wishes to perform may not return to the competition floor unless: 

a. The competition officials receive clearance from: first, the medical personnel attending to that athlete, the parent/guardian (if present) AND THEN the head coach/director of the competing team. 

b. If the medical personnel do not clear the athlete, the athlete can only return to the competition if a parent or legal guardian in attendance signs a return to participation waiver (excluding a suspected concussion). 

c. In the event of a suspected concussion, the athlete cannot return to perform without clearance from a licensed medical professional that has training related to head injuries (medical doctor or designated official specifically trained in concussion management), even with a waiver from a parent or legal guardian. 

d. We encourage you to be familiar with suspected concussion laws applicable in the state where the competition is being held. 

 

5. If a team needs to re-perform a routine but fails to do the routine in its entirety, (example: throwing a back tuck instead of the full twist thrown in the original performance) then this team may receive a penalty at the discretion of competition officials.
