How do teams qualify for the NCAA Division I Women’s Gymnastics Tournament?At the end of each team’s season, their regional qualifying score (RQS) is compared with that of all other teams. The RQS is calculated by taking the team’s top three away meet scores plus three additional home or away team scores. The high score of the six is removed and the remaining scores are averaged to compute the RQS. The teams with the top 36 RQS scores in all of NCAA Women’s Division I Gymnastics will be invited to participate in the tournament. The host team, if not a qualifying team, will be slotted into the competition bracket based on their NQS score.
How do individual collegiate women’s gymnasts qualify for the national tournament?The RQS formula is used for individual scores as well as team scores. The top 12 all-around competitors and top 16 event specialists will be determined by their individual RQS if they are not on a qualifying team. These 28 student athletes will compete with those qualifying individuals on qualifying teams. Qualifying individuals not on a qualifying team will be assigned to a region geographically. Competing all-around and event specialists from the same team will be assigned to the same region.
Who will advance from the regional competition to the national championship?There are four regional competitions. The top two teams from each region along with the top all-around competitors and the top event specialists on each event not on an advancing team will automatically advance. A total of eight teams, four all-around individuals and 16 event specialist competitors will enter the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics National Championship rounds.
