NSCA will annually name All-Region Teams for each of five NSCA Regions: Northeast, North Central, Southeast, South Central, and West. In addition to an Open Team, teams are recognized for Class and Concurrent.
Shooters must shoot a minimum of 500 targets in their home region to qualify for an All-Region team and participate in the Regional Championship. For official criteria to make an All-Region team, see the NSCA Rule Book, page 42.
To calculate All-Region teams, the following method is used:
1. In all categories (Open, Class and Concurrent) points from both shoot sizes (>=100 entries or <100) are added together, and that total becomes TOTAL WINS. Note: The method of calculating these points is outlined in later paragraphs: Open Team, Class Teams and Concurrent Teams. Each of these three teams will have a column for WINS IN EVENTS WITH 100+ ENTRIES and for WINS IN EVENTS WITH LESS THAN 100 ENTRIES.
2. Computer calculates targets shot within home region (to show they have satisfied requirement for minimum of 500 targets in home region) and puts that number in a column labeled REGION TARGETS and lists total targets shot (including REGION Targets) in a column labeled TOTAL TARGETS. Note: These target totals are not used in any calculations; they are only available as a reference.
3. TOTAL WINS are ranked highest to lowest, with highest TOTAL WINS getting 30 WIN POINTS, next highest 29 WIN POINTS and so on down to 1 WIN POINT for 30th highest number of WIN POINTS (and ties, if any).
4. All ties are broken using method shown in the box below labeled “Ranking of Tied Scores.”
5. Top 10 REGION SHOOT SCORES (labeled REGION SCORE) in each category (Open, Class and Concurrent) are ranked high to low and given points. High score in each category receives 10 points, next high 9 points, and down to 1 for the 10th highest score.
6. Points for Region Shoot Scores (Main Event only) are labeled “SCORE PTS” and added to WIN POINTS for TOTAL POINTS, and shooters in each category are then listed in high to low order based on TOTAL POINTS. Highest possible TOTAL POINTS is 40, of course.
7. All ties for placement on any category of All-Region Team are broken by higher Region Shoot score. If there is still a tie, we will go to “Total Points,” then “Region Points.” If there is still a tie for the last or for the only place, both shooters will be given a place on the team.
8. Calculations are based on a shooter’s beginning year class. Shooters who have punched up in class, since the beginning of the shoot year, will still have points earned, posted under their beginning year class.
Ranking of Tied Scores
This is the method used to rank WIN POINTS and SCO PTS in all categories. Notice that tied points (or scores) are given the same number of points, but the next lower number is skipped so that only 30 WIN POINTS and 10 REGIONAL SHOOT SCORES are given a point value.
171 8 (7 skipped due to tie)
171 8 (6 skipped due to tie)
163 4 (3 skipped due to tie)
- Points awarded only to Master and AA shooters
- Points awarded based on rank of score in shoot
For shoots of more than 100 total entries:
- Top score and all ties receive 4 points x total number shooters in event
- 2nd high score and all ties receive 3 points x total number shooters in event
- 3rd high score and all ties receive 2 points x total number shooters in event
- 4th high score and all ties receive 1 point x total number shooters in event
For shoots with less than 100 total entries:
- Top score and all ties receive 3 points x total number shooters in event
- 2nd high score and all ties receive 2 points x total number shooters in event
- 3rd high score and all ties receive 1 point x total number shooters in event
Points are awarded for Class Teams using the same methodology as shown above with one exception: Points awarded are based on number of shooters in class in the event (rather than total entries in event).
Points are awarded for Concurrent Teams using the same methodology as shown above with one exception: Points awarded are based on number of shooters in appropriate concurrent in the event (rather than total entries in event).
