2022 T2FC AMBASSADOR & TEAM OF THE YEAR SEARCH RULES

T2FC High School & College Ambassador Search

The High School Event is open to all Advanced Level Twirlers ages 13-18 that are currently enrolled in and attending High School. The College Event is open to all Advanced Level Twirlers that have graduated High School and are currently enrolled in and attending an accredited college/university.

Those attending the April 16th TU contest will perform live in front of the judges as part of the contest. Those not attending the April 16th contest will be given a report time via Zoom.

Each competitor will be allotted a 10-minute time window with the judges in which they will perform a 1:30-3:00 minute routine, give a personal statement, and then answer interview questions with the judges. No video submissions will be accepted, so anyone competing via Zoom must have a location to perform their routine “live” for the judges. Times will be scheduled at least one week ahead of time to allow those needing to arrange space time to do so.

The performance needs to be a novelty routine to music of choice that is between 1:30-3:00 minutes. The routine can include 1, 2, 3+ batons, novelty equipment, etc, as long as all items used are considered to be a twirling apparatus. The only exception is that no fire may be used, even if performing via Zoom. After the performance is complete, the twirler will give the judges a 1:00 minute personal statement that should include an introduction of the twirler and school they are representing, why they would like to represent T2FC, and should touch upon why T2FC is important to them, or what they would want to implement or achieve if named an Ambassador. With the remainder of the 10-minute time block, the twirlers will be asked questions by the judges to determine who the best representative for the organization will be as both a twirler and spokesperson using a scoring system that weights the performance as 50% and the interview/statement as 50%.

Beginner & Advanced T2FC Team of the Year & Shirt Sales Contest

For 2022, the T2FC Team of the Year will be selected in a two-part event that combines the highest t-shirt sales with the scores from the Team portion of the competition to determine the overall top team for both the Beginner and Advanced classifications. The Overall Beginner & Advanced T2FC Teams of the Year will be determined by the highest score (60%) averaged with the highest number of shirt sales (40%). Shirts can be purchased at www.shopcatchthis.com. All shirts must be ordered by April 10th to count toward the TOTY contest.

All event styles are welcomed and will be judged equally on overall quality of performance within the team’s style (ex: Dance Twirl, Halftime Show Team, HBCU Style Team, College Majorette Line Team, and Twirling Team). Beg and Advance Time Limits: 2:00-4:00 mins. Time Begins with the first Move by Team and Ends at the Final Pose. All team styles and ages will be competing in the same division only differentiated by Beginner or Advanced. Videos for all team events must be filmed in one continuous shot from a stationary camera. Videos with edits or camera changes will be disqualified. All competing teams will be sent instructions on how to turn in their videos on April 1st. All videos must be submitted by April 10th so that they can be judged by April 16th.

T2FC HBCU Style Novelty Solo

The HBCU Style Novelty Solo will give baton twirlers that utilize the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Style of twirling the opportunity to compete against other twirlers with the same style. This event will be offered in the following age groups: 0-9, 10-12, 13-15, & 16+. The video submission will consist of a novelty routine to music of choice that is between 1:00-2:00. The routine can include 1, 2, 3+ batons, novelty equipment, props, dancing, etc. Videos can include edits and location/camera angle changes.
