SS 19 CALCULATION OF THE ROUTINE RESULTS

Synchronised Swimming Rules 2009-2013

SS 19.1 To calculate the Routine score, cancel the highest and lowest award (one each) for each set of awards, Technical Merit and Artistic Impression (Free Routine), or Execution and Overall Impression (Technical Routine). Add the remaining awards, divide the sum by the number of judges less two (2) and multiply the result by five (5) for a maximum of 50 points.

Example with seven (7) judges:

(10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10) x 5
                          5                                     = 50
                        

Example with six (6) judges:

(10 + 10 + 10 + 10 +10 + 10) x 5
                     4                                  = 50
                  

SS 19.2 Any penalties in Technical Routines involving the required elements from rule SS 18.3 shall be deducted from the Execution score to calculate a new Execution score.

SS 19.3 The routine score shall be the sum of the Technical Merit and Artistic Impression scores (Free Routine) or Execution and Overall Impression scores (Technical Routine), less any penalty deductions from rules SS 18.1 and SS 18.2.
