NCA Level Eligibility Policy
All teams must compete in their legitimate USASF level. Teams that move to a lower USASF level prior to attending NCA Nationals are allowed to do so, provided they competed at least once in their new level at one or more USASF competitions prior to February 24, 2017. Should a team’s Level Eligibility be questioned by another program, NCA will request documentation of that team’s participation at a previous event.
Divisions & Crossovers
Unlimited Crossovers will continue to be allowed at all NCA events with the exception of NCA All-Star Nationals. Crossovers at NCA ALL-STAR NATIONALS WILL BE ALLOWED given the following restrictions:
1. Participant may only crossover into a division within the same USASF level (exception: L4.2 athletes may cross to both L4 and L2).
2. A maximum of five crossover participants is allowed per team (exception: L5 Junior team—not L5 Junior Restricted--are allowed a maximum of 8 crossovers. Other L5 divisions may only exceed 5 crossovers if they all come from an L5 Junior team).
3. Participant may only represent one program.
4. Participant may only represent up to a maximum of two teams.
NCA always attempts to ensure teams from the same program do not have overlapping performances during the preliminary schedule. However, NCA cannot guarantee that a performance overlap will not occur during the final schedule. If a team violates the crossover rule, the second and each subsequent team will receive a 10.0 deduction off of their final score for each illegal participant. Maximum penalty is 20.0.
