Virtual Nationals Information
We know that there are a variety of situations for teams and want to be able to accommodate as many of them as we can. Teams wishing to compete in the NDTC Virtual National Championship Divisions must have pre-approval to participate and be eligible to compete. All Teams must submit a letter on school letterhead from your school administrator for approval. Please include in the letter your school name, city, state, camp where qualified, coaches name, and why you are unable to attend the NDTC in person. Please submit all letters to NDTC@varsity.com.
Virtual Divisions (Virtual Divisions are for School teams only. There will not be All-Star Virtual Divisions.)
All Divisions will be guaranteed a Semi-Final and Final round of competition. 50% of the actual number of teams competing will advance from Semi-Finals to Finals. Once the finalist are announced, score sheets and rankings will be emailed out. Teams who advance to Finals, will have the option to record a new routine and upload, or they can upload the same video they used for Semi-Finals. If teams choose to record again, the coach will again need to use the NDTC template in the new recording as well. Teams competing in the Virtual Divisions must follow all of the same rules as the in person event. To see all of the rules for NDTC, please click HERE.
