Please note that due to COVID-19, RPEs for the 2020 season will not take place. All judging will happen online. You can learn more here.
Events must meet these requirements to qualify as an RPE
- Organized by a Regional Ambassador and hosted between April 22nd and May 25th 2020
- The event must be officially registered
- All teams must pitch their apps live
- Minimum of 3 judges
- Minimum of 10 teams in the Junior Division OR Minimum of 10 teams in the Senior Division
What if I have 10 teams in one division, and less than 10 in another division?
The division with the required number of teams (10 or more) will be scored at the judging event and eligible to advance to the semifinals. The division with less than 10 teams can still participate/receive feedback, but will be judged online by our virtual judges.
For example, if there are 10 Senior Division teams and only 5 Junior Division teams, only the Senior Division teams’ scores will be judged at the live pitch event. The Junior Division team will be scored virtually and any scores given to them at the RPE will not be official for the competition.
What if I have a total of 10 teams, but from mixed divisions?
This is NOT considered an official Regional Pitch Event. It will be considered as an unofficial Celebration Event. This means that official scores for these submissions will be provided by our virtual judges and not by any live judges attending the event.
A minimum of 10 teams in at least ONE division is required for the scores of attending teams of that division to be officially received from an RPE. For example, if 5 junior division teams participate and 5 senior division teams participate, this is considered an unofficial Celebration Event and all teams will receive their scores via virtual judging (and NOT the Celebration Event).
