Q: Any tips for navigating this site?
A: There's a lot of information here and it can seem intimidating at first. Probably the most important thing that may not be immediately apparent is that all the tables on this site are sortable. This makes a huge difference when you want to see the scores from highest to lowest for example. To sort the information, just click on the column headings. You can also click on most of the team and gymnast names to see information specific to them.
Q: What's the deal with this site? Is it official in any way?
A: This site was started as a personal project by Jason and Mary Fredericks (former US National Team member and alternate to the 1996 Olympic team Mary Beth Arnold) to give fans, coaches and athletes better access to NCAA gymnastics results. During the 2014-15 season, it became the official statistical and ranking site of Men's NCAA Gymnastics. In the summer of 2015 it was announced that RoadToNationals.com would become the official statistical and ranking site of both Men's and Women's NCAA Gymnastics as well as become the online home of both the College Gymnastics Association (Men's Coaches Association) and the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches / Women.
Q: How is the Regional Qualifying Score (RQS), National Qualifying Average (NQA) and Seasonal Average Score (SAS) computed?
A: Men: NCAA National Qualifying Average: Select the four highest scores, one of which must be a 5 up / 5 count score, counting no more than two home meets. The highest of these four scores will be replaced with the conference championship meet score. These four scores will be averaged to determine the NQA.
Women: Qualification for regional competition is based on a team's and an all-around competitor's six best regular-season-meet scores, of which three must be away. To obtain the regional qualifying score (RQS), the high score is eliminated and the remaining five scores are averaged. Division III uses the SAS which is computed by averaging the best home score, the two best away scores, and then the next highest score.
