Teams who hit a Zero Deductions routine at One Up Events (excluding any safety violation deductions), will earn the right to enter  Zone Zero. At the conclusion of each routine, there is an opportunity for the announcer to award your team with a pass to Zone Zero – “You Just Hit Zero!”

The Scoring Staff will make every effort to accurately report zero deductions, but be aware, announcements are made based on the team’s Provisional Score. Coaches should refer to the emailed or physical copy of Scoresheets following a team’s performance, regardless of “hitting zero” to review any deductions taken due to Safety violations.


Awards will take place in the Tennessee Ballroom at the time designated in the Awards Schedule (linked under schedules).

  • All team members will receive a medallion and Athlete Gift
  • Champion Jackets, and Champion Medals for first place teams
  • Team Placement Banners
  • Novice- Superior Banners
  • Hit Zero Pins- Available at Scoresheet Pick Up
    • Teams who hit a Zero Deductions routine earn the right to enter the Zone Zero Lounge! At One Up, we have unique specialty awards that recognize the sportsmanship of athletes and spectators and the highest-scoring teams. We are certain that everyone in attendance will attempt to “One Up” the competition for years to come.

Specialty Awards: 

  • SUPERIOR SPIRIT: Awarded to the spectators of a single program that demonstrated admirable support of their program and sportsmanship throughout the competition. Event staff will select the recipient of this award.
