AV Shield 2016/17 Season – Scoring.

INTRODUCING THE NEW AV SHIELD SCOREBUDDY WEB APP!

Here’s a sharp 8-point brief about our new scoring system being introduced for the 2016/17 AV Shield Season…

  • Scores will be based purely on performance.
  • Every event has the same amount of points on offer (between 100 and 600).
  • As you improve throughout the season, you will score more points.
  • Your overall performance in each event will contribute to your team’s overall tally after each round.
  • Para-athletes’ scores will be adjusted based on their classification.
  • Athletes in the 40+, 50+ and 60+ events will have their scores adjusted based on their age classification.
  • Athletes pre-entered into an event will have access to their time and scores through the Shield Display Screen (located at the scorer’s tent) and also through the ‘Scorebuddy’ web app.
  • A ‘minimum standard’ requires all athletes to complete an event in the boundaries set by Athletics Victoria in order to score points.
