An isolation zone (ISO) will be in effect for the Youth C competition:
- All competitors must be checked into ISO by 8:30am, regardless of what time they are scheduled to compete in the running order
- Only competitors, coaches with OCF privileges and officials are allowed into ISO; parents are not permitted
- Once competitors enter ISO, they will not be permitted to leave until it is their turn to compete
- Competitors and coaches are not allowed to communicate with anyone outside of ISO (electronic communication devices, including Bluetooth devices, are not permitted in ISO)
- Once in the competition area, competitors may not communicate with anyone other than officials until they are finished competing
- Parents, coaches and other supporters are encouraged to cheer for their climbers, but they cannot call out information or advice (referred to as “beta”) to a climber while they are competing (including during rest periods between their attempts)
- Examples of forbidden beta would include “Use the hold by your left foot,” “Breathe,” “Rest now,” or “Use the hold around the corner”
