Timeline

Qualifications for the Fiesta Jam will take place on Friday, and the finals will occur on Saturday night.

Qualifying Procedure

Due to the large number of level 9/10 athletes in the 2018 Alamo Classic, qualification to the Fiesta Jam will be as follows:

For each Level 9 or 10/Open session:

  • The top 2 or 3 athletes (depending on the session) on each event in each session will qualify to finals regardless of age group.
  • The event winner on each apparatus will not automatically qualify.
  • An¬†alternate will be named on each event in each session.
  • Alternates will be called upon to replace athletes from their original session of competition; Alternates will only be called to compete up until the start of Fiesta Jam Open Stretch.
  • Gymnasts are limited to competing on 2 events in the finals.
  • If an athlete qualifies for more than 2 events, the events they compete in finals will be based on the event with the highest placement, not on the event with the highest score. If the placement is the same, the highest score will determine the event.
  • Ties will be broken by the highest All-Around score.
