The Mega Team competition is a special separate team event from the NASKA Demo Team event and/or the NASKA Sync Team event.
It requires a minimum of 10 team members.
BE A STAR AND PERFORM ON STAGE AT THE DIAMONDS!
The winner of the Advanced Mega Team competition will perform on stage at the Diamond National Finale on Saturday night. The performance stage is 30’x 30’. Your team must be able to perform on a 30’x30’ square.
Teams with ten competitors and more are considered “Mega teams.” There are two divisions (Beginner & Advanced) for Mega team competition.
Beginner mega teams must have a majority of competitors under the rank of brown belt. Belt colors of all ranks (including black belt) may be part of a Mega team as long as the majority are lower than brown belt. Advanced mega teams - If a team has 50% or more of its members at brown belt or higher, they will be in the advanced division.
Mega teams will be judged on the following criteria:
Synchronization - The “tighter” teams are, the higher their scores will be. Teams who perform “on count” will not be scored as highly as teams who do not. If music is included, the synchronization of team movements to the music will be a factor in judging.
Execution - The individual performances of team members should be judged as they would in individual competition.
Presentation, Creativity and Difficulty – As in individual form competition, more creative and\or difficult forms, performed well, will score higher than easier forms that are performed equally well. –
Please note: Music is optional in both Beginner and Advanced Mega Team competition.
Please note Adult Competitors can only enter one Team Fighting Championship. Competitors must pick either the 18+ Fighting Teams or Senior Fighting Teams (not both). They will be happening at the same time.
