Provincials Running Orders and Official Schedule

Format:

  • Qualification rounds: ISO format, 5 problems, 5-on-5-off. Competitors will be ranked by # Tops/ # Zones/ # Tops attempts/ # Zones attempts.
  • The top 8 athletes in each category after qualifiers will proceed to finals. As we have some non-Ontario athletes competing, we will take extra Ontario athletes, if necessary, so that a total of 8 Ontario athletes compete in finals in each category.
  • Finals: ISO format, 4 problems, 5-on-5-off. Competitors will be ranked by # Tops/ # Zones/ # Tops attempts/ # Zones attempts. Count-back (to ranking from preceding round) will be used to break ties.
  • An Isolation Zone (ISO) will be in effect for all age categories:  Only competitors, coaches and officials are allowed into ISO; parents are not permitted. Competitors must be in ISO by the designated ISO close time and must stay in ISO until it is their turn to compete. Electronic communication devices are not allowed in ISO. Once in the competition area, competitors may not communicate with anyone other than officials until they are finished competing. Spectators can provide “You’ve got this” type of encouragement but they cannot provide any information or advice that would be considered coaching (i.e., no “use the green hold”, “there’s a hold around the corner”, “take a break”, “breathe”, “use a heel hook”).
