Point Scoring for Events
The recently developed AV performance points scoring system will be used. Points will be allocated based on performance with a minimum standard required to be eligible to score. Performance points will range from a minimum of 100 to a maximum of 600. Junior and overage competitors, in an event with a specification different to Open, will receive an adjusted score relative to the Open standard. All scoring athletes and relay teams will score performance points for their own age division and for the Open division.
BRAC Premiership Scoring
The scores from each Shield competition will contribute to the Premiership aggregate along with the pre-nominated bonus Premiership Points events that are conducted each Shield Round.
The BRAC Premiership, awarded to both Men’s and Women’s teams for each age category, will be determined by adding the average aggregate score from each Round of Shield to the bonus Premiership Points events conducted throughout the season
