MIDDLE SCHOOL & JUNIOR HIGH
WSDDCA wants to support middle school and junior high dance/drill programs. The following guidelines are designed to help both middle level and high school coaches.
MS/JH teams may participate in competitions, but they should only compete against other MS/JH teams, not HS teams.
Separate awards should be given to MS/JH teams.
MS/JH teams will not be allowed to participate in regular season competitions during the last 2 weeks of competition, UNLESS there is space available and no other HS team is seeking to attend those competitions in an attempt to qualify for districts. This is to insure that MS/JH teams are not "taking" a HS team's place in their attempt to qualify for districts.
MS/JH and HS teams must be separated during drill downs. Drill down will be called at the same time, but MS/JH teams will need to gather in their own section separate from the HS teams. Separate awards should be given to MS/JH participants.
