2016 NCAA MENS GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIPS | April 15 and 16, 2016

TECHNICAL INFORMATION CHAMPIONSHIPS QUALIFIER QUALIFICATION Based on the NCAA national qualifying average, the top 10 teams, in addition to the conference champions from the Big Ten Conference and the Eastern College Athletic Conference, the top five all-around competitors who are not members of a selected team, and the top five individuals per event who are not members of a selected team or have not already been selected in the all-around, will compete in the championships qualifier. The next two alternates will be identified for each event and will be inserted if a scratch occurs. Not more than 15 competitors may represent any one institution. Head coaches may petition all-around and individual event participants into the championships qualifier due to injuries or other justified reasons. A written petition must be submitted to the Men’s Gymnastics Committee chair by 11 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, April 5. TIES Ties will be broken using the following guidelines (in priority order): CHAMPIONSHIPS QUALIFIER — TEAM 1. Conference championship score; 2. Highest away score; and 3. Second highest away score. Keep evaluating regular-season scores until the tie has been broken. CHAMPIONSHIPS QUALIFIER — INDIVIDUAL Ties will not be broken. All tied individuals will be invited to attend the championships qualifier. MEET FORMAT The meet format will consist of six rotations of six groups. INDIVIDUAL QUALIFIERS Student-athletes who qualify as individuals in the all-around and individual events will be placed with one of the six teams in each session of the championships qualifier. Every attempt will be made to keep members of the same team in the same session. The individual qualifiers will perform first on each apparatus. JUDGING Four judges will be used for each event. SEEDING At the championships qualifier, the national qualifying average will be used to determine the seeding of teams in each session. The highest qualifying team in each session will be given first 11

2016 NCAA MENS GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIPS | April 15 and 16, 2016

choice of starting position. Then, the second-highest qualifying team in each session will be asked to choose its starting event, followed by the third-highest team, etc. Teams that do not enter their scores on the CGA computer on time may not get to choose according to their seeding. If the host institution is participating in the team portion, its entire group will compete in Session II. If the host institution does not qualify as a team, the No. 1 seed will get to select their session. GROUPING Group One: Seed Nos. 1, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 12 Group Two: Seed Nos. 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 and 11 WARM-UP There will be a controlled warm-up on the competition floor. This warm-up will be for five members from the qualified teams, gymnasts competing on the event in order to obtain an allaround score, plus the event specialist and/or all-around competitors assigned to the group. Each group will have 12 minutes per event and a one-minute transition time. Equipment may be adjusted and prepared, but teams cannot warm up until cued by the announcer. This will be strictly enforced and a penalty may be applied for violations. Each group will finish its warm-up on the apparatus it has drawn as its first competition event. A three-minute warm-up will be allowed before each rotation. Individual qualifiers will warm up first, before the team. ROSTER The official team roster for the championships qualifier may not be changed after the timed warm-ups begin. LINEUP CHANGES Official lineup changes within the 15-man roster may be made up until the end of the three minute warm-up in each rotation. Communicate all lineup changes to ProScore. COMPETITION FORMAT All six events in the championships qualifier sessions will be in progress simultaneously. Five gymnasts may compete on each event, with all scores per event counting toward the team score. When a sixth competitor performs to complete the all-around, his score only counts for the all-around and not for the team score. This athlete must compete at the end of the team line-up. The public address announcers will announce the first competitors on floor exercise, pommel horse and still rings. When the floor exercise competitor completes his routine, the vault performer will be announced; when the pommel horse competitor dismounts, the parallel bars competitor will be announced; when the still rings competitor dismounts, the horizontal bar competitor will be announced. Throughout the competition, three competitors will be competing at the same time. 12

2016 NCAA MENS GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIPS | April 15 and 16, 2016

Not more than 15 competitors may represent any one institution. March-in will be limited to 15 individuals. Any participant in the championships is eligible to win an award for any event. TIES Ties will be broken using the following guidelines (in priority order): CHAMPIONSHIP — TEAM 1. National Qualifying Average score; and 2.

Next highest individual-event place, etc., until the tie is broken. PRELIMINARY INDIVIDUAL — EVENT 1. National Qualifying Average score. 2. D-score from the chammpionships qualifer. MEET FORMAT The meet format will consist of six rotations of six groups. Each group will consist of one team, one event specialist and one all-around competitor. The No. 1-ranked event specialist and allaround competitor from Session I will compete with the No. 1-ranked team from Session I, the No. 2 event specialist and all-around competitor with the No. 2 team, etc. The event specialist will compete in the first position, followed by the all-around competitor and then the team. JUDGING Four judges will be used for each event. STARTING EVENT The starting event for the six teams participating in the championships finals will be decided immediately after the evening session of the championships qualifier. If a coach is not available to select his team’s starting position, the team will be assigned its starting position after all other coaches present have selected. Positions for the team finals will be determined as follows: First choice — Session winner with highest score from the championships qualifier. Second choice — Other session winner. Third choice — Second-place team from the same session as the team with the highest score. Fourth choice — Other second-place team. Fifth choice — Third-place team from the same session as the team with the highest score. Sixth choice — Other third-place team. 13

Up to six “Floor Access Only” credentials may be provided to student-athletes who are not listed as part of the travel party.

Official roster changes may be made up until the timed warm-ups begin for both the championships qualifier and the championships finals. Communicate all roster changes to ProScore. Credentials of athletes removed from your official roster should be presented at the time the change is made, and a new student-athlete credential will be provided for the alternate. Each team may receive one team videographer credential. This credential provides permission to shoot video from the spectator seating area for team use. However, it is not valid for admittance to the venue or access to the floor. Once a controlled warm-up period begins, only 21 members of the travel party may be on the floor. An issued credential may not be given to another team member or individual. Institutions must purchase a ticket for any individual over the travel party of 21. INDIVIDUAL. Institutions with one to four participants will receive four non-participant credentials. Institutions with five to 10 participants will receive five non-participant credentials.

DESIGNATED TEAM AREAS Team participants must remain in their designated seating area during the championships competition. Only competitors performing or preparing to perform (the next competitor) will be exempt. There will be a 0.3 point deduction on the team score for each violation after an initial warning by the Technical Director or a member of the national committee.

DRUG TESTING NCAA championship committees, following a recommendation from the NCAA drug-testing subcommittee, have discontinued the practice of announcing whether drug testing will be conducted at NCAA championship events. Although knowing prior to competition whether NCAA drug testing was to occur had value for reasons of convenience, it left open the possibility that student-athletes might be tempted to use banned substances if they knew that NCAA testing was not being conducted at the site of competition. Therefore, all coaches and student-athletes should presume that NCAA drug testing will occur at this championship event. Please inform your student-athletes that in the event they are notified of their selection for drug testing, the student-athlete must inform an official representative of your institution (e.g. coach, athletics trainer) before proceeding to the drugtesting site. Student-athletes will be reminded by the courier to contact their team representative.

ELITE 90 ACADEMIC RECOGNITION PROGRAM The Elite 90 award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average competing at the finals site for each of the NCAA’s 90 championships. Each institution that has at least one student-athlete qualify for the finals round/site is eligible to nominate a student-athlete to win the award for that championship. All ties are broken by number of credits completed. All documents, including eligibility, deadlines and nomination forms, are available at Elite 90 forms. The submission deadline for nomination for men’s gymnastics is 5 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, April 7.

EQUIPMENT All equipment used on the competition floor will be supplied by the official equipment company, American Athletic, Inc. (AAI). A list of equipment is available on ncaa.org. Please note there will be a podium for this year’s championship.

EMERGENCY PLAN Building Evacuation St. John Arena is a square structure and has twelve sets of exit doors on the main level. In the event of an emergency, • Patrons sitting in the lower seating areas may proceed down the closest of the 10 stairwells or 4 ramps to the nearest door. • Patrons sittin in the upper seating area may proceed down the closest of the 8 stairwells to the nearest door. • Athletes, judges, media, staff and volunteers may head up one of the four ramps to the nearest door. There is also an emergency exit near the locker room hallway should all of the ramps be blocked. Severe Weather At Ohio State, in the case of a tornado it was recommended that we don’t direct people to a certain place. We make them aware that severe weather is imminent and/or a tornado warning has been issued, and we advise people that if they would like to take cover we will provide them with options. The rule of thumb is to find a substantial (concrete or brick) structure with a western exposure. With that said, the Event Management staff will monitor the news and weather reports and will determine the direction of the tornado and best determine an area in which to take cover. In St. John Arena, the best locations for shelter are the hallway underneath FFH/SJA, SJA locker room, SJA Concourse (away from the doors and cars). Fire In the event of a fire, the fire alarm system will sound, and an announcement will be given over the PA system advising customers what steps they need to take to leave the building safely.

MISCONDUCT/ETHICAL BEHAVIOR BY COACHES/SPORTSMANSHIP/SPORTS WAGERING CRITICISM OF OFFICIALS Members of the coaching staff or other representatives of participating institutions or conferences shall not make public statements critical of officiating in any NCAA championship event. Failure to comply with this policy may subject the individual, institution or conference to the misconduct provisions of Bylaw 31.1.10. ADMINISTRATIVE MEETING Each games committee shall hold an administrative meeting with the coaches of participating institutions to review and explain the policies related to misconduct. HEARING OPPORTUNITY An act of misconduct may be found upon an administrative hearing granted to the student-athlete or the institutional representative involved by the governing sports committee or the games committee authorized to act for it. MISCONDUCT INCIDENT TO COMPETITION If the act of misconduct occurs during the competition, under normal circumstances the individual shall be allowed to complete the competition in which he or she is participating at the time of the incident. An administrative hearing shall be held at the conclusion of the day’s competition, during a break in the continuity of the championship (e.g., between rounds of a basketball tournament) when no competition is being conducted or at the conclusion of the championship. However, if the act of misconduct is so flagrant that it obviously violates the principles of fair play and sportsmanship, the games committee may immediately withdraw the student-athlete or institutional representative from the competition and conduct the hearing after this action. Other acts of misconduct may be dealt with at the governing sports committee’s convenience. ETHICAL BEHAVIOR BY COACHES Members of the coaching profession have certain inherent obligations and responsibilities to the profession, to the student-athletes and to all those with whom they come into contact. Coaches are expected to be role models who conduct themselves with integrity and high ethical standards at all times. The words and actions of a coach carry tremendous influence, particularly on the young people under his or her direction. It is, thus, imperative that he or she demonstrate and demand high principles of sportsmanship and ethical behavior. SPORTSMANSHIP The primary goal of the rules is to maximize the safety and enjoyment of the student-athlete. Sportsmanship is a key part of that goal. Sportsmanship should be a core value in behavior of players and bench personnel, in crowd control by game management and in the officials’ proper enforcement of the rules governing related actions.

2016 NCAA MENS GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIPS | April 15 and 16, 2016

SPORTS WAGERING The NCAA defines sports wagering as putting something at risk – such as an entry fee or a wager – with the opportunity to win something in return. The NCAA opposes all forms of legal and illegal sports wagering on college sports. Student athletes and athletics administrators cannot place a sports wager for any NCAA-sanctioned sport. This includes wagering on the intercollegiate, amateur or professional level. A student-athlete involved in sports wagering on the student-athlete’s institution permanently loses all remaining-regular season and postseason eligibility in all sports. A student-athlete who is involved in any sports wagering activity that involves college sports or professional athletics, through Internet gambling, a bookmaker, a parlay card or any other method employed by organized gambling, will be ineligible for all regular-season and postseason competition for at least one year. In championships in which a bracket format is used, student-athletes, coaches and administrators may not participate in bracket competitions where there is both a required entry fee and an opportunity to win a prize. Student-athletes and administrators may participate under current NCAA rules, in bracket contests where there is no entry fee but a possibility of winning a prize. Some NCAA member schools, however, have chosen to ban student-athletes from participating in these types of bracket contests.

APPENDIXES CODE OF ETHICS FOR JUDGES AND COACHES OF NCAA MEN’S GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIPS It is imperative to the dignity and growth of the sport of gymnastics that judges be well-educated in the details of gymnastics and the current rules, and are thoroughly prepared for each assignment to cover all possible circumstances. The following code of ethics for judges and coaches is mandated, and coaches in violation may be subject to NCAA misconduct provisions. QUALIFICATION: It is the duty of each judge to prepare himself thoroughly and constantly update his preparation by recertifying his national card each year. He shall not accept any judging assignment for which he does not feel well-qualified. All judges must be nationally certified. State-rated judges are not acceptable for dual meets or tournaments. APPEARANCE: Each judge shall be prompt and shall dress and conduct himself with the dignity appropriate to his status. Coaches shall help set and maintain such standards. Judges shall wear a darkblue coat, gray slacks, and a shirt and tie. ACTIVITIES: Each judge shall confine his activities to the purpose for which he is assigned. This does not include coaching, demonstrating or recruiting. Coaches will not ask judges to double as coaches. IMPARTIALITY: Every judge will avoid even the appearance of partisanship. For example, a judge will avoid: 1. Judging a meet involving an institution he attends or at which he is employed in the athletic department. 2. Judging any meet when he feels prejudiced toward any competing team. 3. Traveling with one of the competing teams to or from the meet, except on commercial transportation. 4. Accepting overnight lodging invitations with competitors or coaches before or after a meet. 5. Accepting social invitations from the host coach before or after the meet, unless the opposing coach also is included. 6. Giving any appearance, especially at the meet, of any particular friendship with any coach or competitor. 7. Leaving the judges’ designated seating area during warm-ups. COACHES’ RESTRICTIONS Coaches will avoid even the appearance of courting partisanship or unprofessional behavior. For example, coaches may not: 1. Discuss with judges before the meet the rules and their interpretations, unless the opposing coach also is included. 2. Offer gifts, favors or privileges to judges that can be interpreted as attempts to influence their judgments in favor of his team. 3. As home coaches, act as announcers of their own competition. 4. Make public statements critical of judging. 5. Each athlete/team must be accompanied by a paid member of the school’s gymnastics staff unless prior arrangements have been approved by NCAA committee. CONDUCT OF COMPETITION 1. It is the duty of officials and coaches to see that every gymnastics competition is conducted with full regard for the safety of and justice to all competitors, and the edification and pleasure of the spectators. 2. Judges must maintain appropriate separation, arrive at scores independently and adhere strictly to score-flashing procedures in accordance with the NCAA modifications and FIG Code of Points. 37
