We remain committed to fair and consistent scoring. Our goal is to evolve and provide the tools needed to all school teams this season for a clear understanding of divisions, rules, and scoring. To achieve this, we will follow the four guiding principles of transparency, fairness, integrity, and safety.

Legality Review Process
Universal Dance Association offers a service to help teams with legality and safety questions. Teams will be able to email skills in throughout the year to receive a legality or safety response. This service will help teams get a response with a video attached back to use in situations where the skill may be in question.
Teams are not required, but encouraged, to submit a safety video.
To email a video, the following must be included:
Videos that do not follow the above rules will not receive a response.
If you know that your video does not meet all the requirements above, please refilm/resubmit the video. Only videos that meet the above requirements will be reviewed.
Please send all videos to UDARules@varsity.com.
Please note: Performing the skill at a prior event does not ensure that a skill is legal nor that it would have warranted a legality warning. Only submitting the skill will make the skill eligible for a warning. UDA can only guarantee this process will be accepted at UDA-branded events. This would not include other Varsity-branded and state association events.
Criteria for Selecting Judges
Judges selected for one of our regional events should meet these standards
In addition to the regional event standards these additional criteria will be used when selecting our National Championship Judges.
Judge Selection – Example Conflicts of Interest
Providing accurate, fair, and unbiased feedback for our customers is one of our top priorities. With that said, our selected panel of judges must have no affiliation with teams in a division they are scheduled to judge.
Example of potential Conflicts of Interest:
