Various individual and team awards are given out at the Move United Junior Nationals.
Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each event per classification, age group, and gender. Medals can be picked up Tuesday evening at the Welcome Ceremony and Friday evening at the Closing Celebration. All medals that are not picked up will be mailed to the athlete; however, we encourage you to pick up your medals and take advantage of a photo op while on site wearing your medals!
Team awards will be given to the top 5 teams overall. Winning teams are determined based on points. Team scores are determined using an adjusted point system. Below is an example of how overall team points are calculated.
For example, assume the team sizes range from 2 to 30 members. Take each team, in this case, and divide the number of members on the team into 30, the largest team size. So, a team with 5 members would be 30 divided by 5 which is 6. Multiply that team’s score by 6 to get the adjusted score. Assume the next team had 10 members. Do the same thing – 30 divided by 10 which is 3. Multiply that team’s score by 3 to get their adjusted score. Continue this process for all the teams and the highest adjusted score would be the winner. The next highest would be second, etc.
*Note: Team awards have been awarded in the past to small, medium, and large team groupings. In 2021, these groupings will not be used.
