New Rankings Calculation - 2018
Guide to Rankings 2018
- Follow the principles of the FEI ranking system
- Placings in more advanced classes should be worth more points
- First place is better rewarded so that there is a clear benefit in coming first
- Limit ranking points to the top 4 placings
- Encourage vaulters to obtain high scores even in classes with low numbers with minimum scores limitation
- Encourage attendance at as many competitions as possible and particularly attendance at the British Championships
- Did the vaulter achieve a minimum score (see table)?
Failure to achieve this score means no ranking points for that competition
|Class||Minimum final score required to achieve ranking points|
- Vaulter is allocated points according to their placing in that class
|Regional competitions & Championships||British Championships:|
|1 star||2 star||3 star||1 star||2 star||3 star|
Where there is a draw all vaulters on that placing will receive the same points . This will mean that in some competitions more than 4 vaulters can score ranking points at that competition.
- The best 4 scores in any single category (Child Female, Child Male, Junior Female, Junior Male, Senior Female and Senior Male ) over the calendar year will be added together to determine the final ranking positions.
NOTES FOR CLARIFICATION:
Changing age groups: Where a vaulter has changed age groups they may only use points from placings in that age group. E.g. a vaulter who competes in child 2 star at the start of the season and then changes into junior 2 star may not use points accrued in child classes towards a junior ranking.
Insufficient competitions: Vaulters must have competed in a minimum of 2 UK competitions to be considered for a ranking position.
No vaulters at a suitable level: Where no vaulters in an age group have obtained ranking points no ranking trophies will be awarded.
