Below are listed the SOP updates/clarification that are in effect for the upcoming SNI HOSTED COMPETITIONS. Please check back weekly to ensure no changes have been made that you will be responsible for. The SOP changes/clarifications site will be finalized one week prior to the competition start date when the official event start times are posted on this website.
EVENT SOP UPDATES
1) 1 August, 2018:
Official AF Nationals Invite, SOP/score sheets, floor diagrams and other event info posted SNI has posted much of the items needed for schools to begin to learn about the event and prepare for attendance. Schools will be able to register to attend beginning on 15 September annually.
2) 11 February, 2019:
CLARIFICATION - SOP CHANGE on HEAD JUDGE POSITION in EXHIBITION DRILL Conflicting information in the SOP. To clarify the judges position is FIXED in all areas of the competition. You may NOT direct a judge where to stand for any portion of your routine to include report in & report out. Judge position is FIXED on the map and all report in/out will be done from this position ONLY (no exceptions). Scoresheets for solo/dual exhibition are the SAME as the corresponding division team exhibition scoresheets.
3) 11 February, 2019:
CLARIFICATION - EXHIBITION TIMES AND OTHER DETAILS ADDED TO SOP Previously, whistles were accepted and allowed by Cadet Commanders leading unarmed Exhibition teams. This has been eliminated. Therefore the exception for using whistles has been rescinded and they will no longer be allowed use anywhere inside the building for any reason.
4) 20 February, 2019:
CLARIFICATION - COMMANDER DOES NOT MOVE TO CHECK ALIGNMENT There was conflicting verbiage within SOP. Teams are directed to NOT MOVE TO CHECK ALIGNMENT but will execute all other required movements/commands during the "Open Ranks" sequence of both INSPECTION and REGULATION drill. Also, the Cadet Commander WILL NOT direct any cadet to change their position in the formation. Time is tight and well-practiced teams should be able to execute this movement flawlessly without adjustment.
you, good luck and safe travel to all attendees!
