Virtual Divisions (2021 Only)

General Information
Teams will be able to upload one prelims and one finals routine video to Varsity TV to be judged by NDA trained judges. ALL teams that submit a prelims video will advance to finals. Once prelim videos have been judged, teams will receive score sheets and rankings before filming their final routine videos. Routine videos will be available to watch on Varsity TV along with a virtual awards ceremony.

Filming Guidelines
Teams will receive a keyword and template prior to upload dates. These templates will need to be printed and filled out to hold up at the beginning of your routine video. Once keyword templates have been sent, teams may begin filming before the upload link is sent via email. There will be a different keyword and template for prelims and finals. Please refer to our Filming Guidelines for tips and more information.
