MINI Division              Average age: 8-10
JUNIOR Division         Average age: 11-12
TEEN Division             Average age: 13-15
SENIOR Division          Average age: 16-19
*ADULT Division         *If a routine has a dancer who is 20+ as of January 1st, 2017, the routine will be placed in the Adult Division and will be judged for adjudicated awards only.

**All Ages are as of January 1, 2017** 

To determine the average age of an entry, add all the ages together and divide by the total number of dancers in the entry. All averages are to be rounded down to the nearest whole number. For example, if a routine average age is 15.6, you would drop the decimal. Therefore the routine would compete in the Teen 13-15 age category. 

By the rule, the average age of each entry may not drop more than one age division below the age of the oldest dancer in the entry, regardless of the actual average age.  For example, if an entry contains dancers ranging in age from 7-18, the entry may not compete in a division younger than the 13-15 age category (one division younger than the oldest dancer - 18 yrs.). If a routine is placed in the incorrect category (age division, style, etc.), Adrenaline reserves the right to adjust it at any time.
