What does a team consist of?
A team consists of 3-4 teams of the sizes Small/Medium or Intermediate/Large. Here two examples:
Team Example Nr. 1
Team 1 (Small 3) / Team 2 (Medium 3) / Team 3 (Medium 3) / Team 4 (Small 3)
→ Small & Medium can be mixed!
Team Example Nr. 2
Team 1 (Large 3) / Team 2 (Large 3) / Team 3 (Large 3) / Team 4 (Large 3)
→ only Larges
Team Example Nr. 3
Team 1 (Large 3) / Team 2 (Intermediate 3) / Team 3 (Large 3) / Team 4 (Large 3)
→ Intermediate & Large can be mixed!
What runs are there?
The heats are run in World Championship team mode. The results of the 4 team starters are evaluated as a combination of the heats from Agility 3 and Jumping 3. Each team has one as a discarded result.
The teams run one after the other in their size category!
Qualification for the team final
→ the best 20% of the Small/Medium or Intermediate/Large Teams out of Agility 3
→ the best 20% of the Small/Medium or Intermediate/Large Teams out of Jumping 3
The calculation is always rounded up to the next full counter. If teams qualify twice the next teams from the Agility 3 run will be considered.
How is it rated
The team is rated as a combination with each team having one team per run as a discarded result. So the top 3 teams in the team are added together in terms of total errors and total time.
Disqualifications are evaluated with 50 penalty points and a time of 100 seconds.
Procedure team final
It is run in EO final mode. The course plans are handed out to the qualified teams and picked up by the team leader at the judges’ table when the qualified teams are announced.
→ each team receives 4 course plans and a team sheet
→ the course is divided into 4 sequences and divided into letters A/B/C/D
→ 1st starter starts at A, 2nd at B, 3rd at C and 4th at D
→ the team determines its starting order itself and hands in the completed team sheet with the starting order to the judges’ table immediately after the course inspection
If a team consists of only three teams one team runs two ways.
Rules team finals
The following rules apply in the team final:
→ the 1st starter at A is released by the judge with a whistle → errors and refusals are rated normally
→ Refusals must be repeated, otherwise a disqualification will be recorded / the team must continue to run in the correct order of the course for the rating
→ if a starter refuses three times, a disqualification will be noted, which will be punished with 50 penalty points / the team must continue to run in the correct order of the course for the rating
→ if a team runs a disqualification, this is rated with 50 penalty points / the team must continue to run in the correct order of the course for the rating
→ if the team runs further disqualifications, it remains at 50 fault points / the team must continue to run in the correct order of the course for the rating
The team with the fewest mistakes and the fastest time wins.
