Proposal 11: Performance, Technical, Dismounts [ Revision 2 ]Committee: Freestyle Development Committee
Submitted on 2017-02-26
Status: Passed on March 11, 2017
In order to implement this idea, several rules need to be changed. I did my best to find all of them here but I'm sure I missed some. By approving this proposal we also give the editor of the rulebook the opportunity to implement this rule in the rulebook and also fix any rules that should be affected by this proposal but were missed (for example, duplicate rules in different sections due to the rulebook re-org).
7C.7 Artistic Freestyle Judging
Judging for Individual, Pairs, and Group Freestyle is divided into three components, Technical, Performance, and Dismounts. They are weighted as follows:
Qualified judges may judge one or more components (Technical, Performance, Dismounts) per competition category. For each component, there are subcategories each of which are always scored out of 10 points (for the ease of judging). High scores are better. Scores such as 2.0, 2.2, or even 2.25 are encouraged to help differentiate between riders of similar ability. The subcategories for each component may be weighted differently as described below.
7C.7.1 Individual Freestyle – Technical Score
The Technical part of the judging is broken into three subcategories. These subcategories are weighted as follows:
Quantity of Unicycling Skills and Transitions 25%
Mastery and Quality of Execution 37.5%
Difficulty and Duration 37.5%
7C.7.2 Individual Freestyle – Performance Score
Performance scoring is divided into three subcategories. These subcategories are weighted as follows:
Interpretation of the Music/Timing 33.33%
*New Section* (The majority of this text was taken from the current rule: 7C.7.2.1)
7C.7.3 Individual Freestyle - Dismount Score
The Dismount Score is calculated based on the number of major and minor falls as outlined below. Judges need to be able to differentiate between a planned dismount and an unplanned dismount.
Major dismounts are when the unicycle falls and/or a hand or any body part other than the rider’s foot or feet touch the floor. Major dismounts are also when the choreography of a rider’s routine is clearly affected.
Minor dismounts are when the unicycle does not fall, only the rider’s foot or feet touch down and the choreography of a rider’s routine is not affected. A minor dismount may also be counted when Judges cannot differentiate between a planned dismount and an unplanned dismount.
Exception: Dismounts that occur while the rider is performing a seat drag skill have to be evaluated somewhat differently since the unicycle is already on the ground. For these dismounts, the judges should use the current above language regarding minor and major dismounts but disregard the parts talking about the unicycle. For example, if a rider is performing seat drag in back and steps off the unicycle with only their feet touching the ground, it would be considered a minor dismount unless the choreography of the routine is plainly affected.
Scores are generated using the following calculations:
Score = 10 −1.0 · (number of major dismount(s)) −0.5 · (number of minor dismount(s))
