FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE WSF VIRTUAL CHAMPIONSHIP?
All all star and studio dance teams can attend this event!

HOW WILL A VIRTUAL EVENT WORK?
Teams will film in their own facility. Our virtual event format does not require that all participating teams be present in their gyms at the same time or on the same day. This decision was made based on your feedback and will allow each individual Gym Owner the flexibility needed to maintain social distancing and sanitization between teams. Gyms should follow all applicable governmental COVID guidelines and orders while participating in our virtual events.

Once routine videos are filmed, they will be uploaded to Varsity TV. There is no need to purchase additional equipment or internet services for your program – simply film on your phone or available camera! A Varsity All Star certified judging panel will score the routines in our Simple Score system. Score sheets and division breakdowns will be emailed to coaches, just like at an in-person event.

Filming Best Practices

Score sheets and division breakdowns will be emailed to coaches, just like at an in-person event. All routines will be judged with sound and available for Varsity TV subscriber viewing with sound for 48 hours once the event goes live. Teams will receive a link to our AccuScore review process prior to the start of the event and will be able to follow the steps similar to a live event for challenges. Our AccuScore experts will review your sheets and follow up with your program on any changes or clarifications prior to the awards announcements.

*Please note that we still plan to offer live events when and where we can safely host them.
