First Place Tie - Breaker Policy
Ties will not be broken at any event for any placement. However, there will be two exceptions to this rule:
Ties will be broken for a final U.S. Finals or Worlds bid (regardless of placement)
After awarding first place, ties will be broken at The U.S. Finals for co-champion teams so that only one team moves on in The Champions Challenge
Ties will be broken in the following manner:
Step 1. The team with the least amount of deductions will win the bid.
Step 2. The team with the highest combined execution scores will win the bid.
Step 3. The team with the highest performance score will win bid.
Step 4. If all steps above do not break the tie, the winner will be declared by judges' choice.
For The Summit bids, all ties will be broken according to the official Summit bid tie-breaker policy.
