Various individual and team awards are given out at the Adaptive Sports USA Junior Nationals.
Individual awards include medals which will be given to the top three finishers in each event per classification, where applicable. These will be picked up at various times throughout the week. At the closing celebration, awards such as the Jay Coyner Award, Junior Nationals Spirit of Excellence Awards, the Ted Kaplan Award, and the Sports N Spokes Jr. Athlete of the Year may be given out.
A description of each award and list of past recipients can be found online at https://adaptivesportsusa.org/awards-recognition.
Team awards are awarded to independents based on east, central and western state compilation as well as small, medium and large teams. The size of each team will be determined once registration is closed and posted here for all to know. Team awards are first divided into three groups (as close to equal number of teams per group as possible) based on size of team: small, medium, and large teams. Within each group, event management adjusts the team scores as follows:
For example, assume the group has the range of 5 to 10 members. Take each team in this case and divide the number on the team into 10 the largest team. So, the team with 5 members would be 10 divided by 5 which is 2 so multiply that teams score by 2 to get the adjusted score. Assume the next team had 7 members. Doing the same thing 10 divided by 7 which is 1.4286. Multiply that teams score by 1.4286 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.
Check back for sport specific results daily of the event. Results will also be posted at the host hotel and onsite at each sport venue.
