    Exception: L4.2 may only crossover to L2, L3, and L4.
  1. Athletes competing in an International division may not crossover to another International division.

2021 Level Eligibility Policy
All teams must compete in their legitimate level. Teams that move to a lower level prior to attending NCA Nationals are allowed to do so, provided they competed at least once in their new level at a USASF competition prior to NCA Nationals.

Should a team’s Level Eligibility be questioned by another program, NCA will request documentation of that team’s participation at a previous event.
