New 'Individual Discipline' Team Championship
At the Collegiate Regional and National Championships, Collegiate teams have the opportunity to earn an ‘Individual Discipline’ award in bouldering, sport and/or speed and an ‘Overall Discipline’ Award. The Individual discipline team championship award is calculated by adding the ranking points of the three highest ranked individual team members, per gender, participating in each discipline of the competition. Team members may be counted in more than one discipline meaning 6 unique competitors 3-men and 3-women per team, per discipline. The Overall Team Championship award is calculated by adding the ranking points of the three highest ranked individual team members participating in each discipline of the competition. However, for the overall, team members may not be counted in more than one discipline, meaning the calculation is based on the top 3 unique competitors of each team, for each discipline and gender totaling 9 unique women (3-bouldering, 3- sport, 3-speed) and 9 unique men (3-bouldering, 3-sport, 3-speed).
