Circuit Rankings

A team's overall score in the USMCA National Circuit is the sum of:

  • ◦  Their highest point award;
  • ◦  40% of their second highest point award;
  • ◦  10% of their third highest point award.
For example, a team earning point awards of 85 and 50, in any order, obtains a total score of 85 + 0.4 • 50 = 105.

Ties in the National Circuit are broken by best absolute rank at any USMCA Partner Competition; remaining ties are broken by second-best absolute rank at any USMCA Partner Competition, and so forth.
