Proposal 5: Delete Rule 7C.6 [ Revision 1 ]

Committee: Freestyle Development Committee
Submitted on 2017-02-15
Status: Passed on March 05, 2017


The actual time of the routine is not a factor in the judging, judges judge the routine that is demonstrated no matter how long it is. Therefore it's not important for the time to be announced. Judges can ask for the time if they would like to know it. 



When a Freestyle performance is finished, the timer will report the actual length of the performance. The time can be either displayed visually or announced publicly. A visual display must be visible to the judges and audience, such as on an electronic timing board or written on a whiteboard. If the routine ran overtime, only the maximum time need be displayed (example: 4:00 for Experts), or nothing at all. For public announcements by voice, the announcement should happen after the performer has exited, or clearly finished performing. In other words it is preferred to wait if the performer has an artistic exit, even though it cannot be judged. Then the announcement should be made, in a form similar to “The performance time was two minutes, forty two seconds.” This announcement must be made without delay, as it is a factor in the judging of the performer. If the performance ran overtime, no voice announcement is needed.
