  • Certificate and Annual Plaque

 

PAIR OF THE YEAR

Criteria

  • This award shall reward overall athletic excellence and achievement.
  • The recipient shall be the ‘duo’ (Pair or Artistic Pair) with the greatest total points accumulated from the major competitions since the conclusion of the previous season’s Canadian Championships. These are: the WBTF World Championships or International Cup, the current season’s Provincial Championships, and the current season’s Canadian Championships.
  • Points from the Provincial Championships (Pair) are earned from Level A Pair event. Exception: If the Pair event is only offered at the Provincial Team Trials, points are earned from the Provincial Team Trials competition. If the Pair event is offered at both the Provincial Team Trials and the Provincial Championships, points are earned from the Provincial Championships competition.
  • Points from the Canadian Championships (Pair) are earned from Level A Pair event only.
  • Points from the WBTF International Cup are earned from Elite Level divisions only, and only if the Artistic Pair met the Minimum Score Standard, established by the Technical Committee, at the International Cup Qualifier.
  • Points from the WBTF World Championships are earned only if the Pair met the Minimum Score Standard, established by the Technical Committee, at the Canadian Team Trials.
  • In any particular awards cycle, an athlete could be a member of more than one ‘duo’. To accumulate points from one competition to the next, the ‘duo’ members must be the same in each competition. This does not prevent a ‘duo’ from changing members, nor does it prevent an athlete from having a different partner in Pair than they do in Artistic Pair, but the new ‘duo’ does not carry over any points from the old ‘duo’. Each unique combination of ‘duo’ members accumulates its own set of points. For example:
    • Athlete 1 and 2 are Pair members at the World Championship
    • Athlete 1 competes with Athlete 3 at the next Provincial and Canadian Winner/Championship competitions
    • Athlete 2 competes with Athlete 4 at the next Provincial and Canadian Winner/Championship competitions
    • In the situation described above, there are actually 3 ‘duos’ accumulating points:
      • Athlete 1 and 2 receive points from the World Championship
      • Athlete 1 and 3 receive points from the Provincial and Canadian Winner/Championship
      • Athlete 2 and 4 receive points from the Provincial and Canadian Winner/Championship
  • The points shall be monitored by the CBTF Data Entry Coordinator.
