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.
The SAS is determined by the average of four scores based on the following criteria:
-Scores from meets held with more than half the teams being NCAA collegiate varsity teams.
-Scores from meets held with more than half of the teams being NON-COLLEGIATE TEAMS, will NOT be considered in the SAS.
-Any meet scheduled after the Regional Tournament will not be counted into the SAS.
-At least one score MUST be from an away meet.
-Eastern Region; * No more than one of the AWAY meets may be out of the school’s respective region.
-Western Region; * No more than one of the AWAY meets may be hosted by a Division I or II Institution.
-Before the second week in February a straight average of all meets is used instead of the SAS.
