Victoria Police Games Federation Inc. Inter-Services Trophy
As there can be a large difference in the number of personnel attached to each Agency, the new weighting factor ensures that all Agencies compete on an equal basis. This new weighting factor better reflects the participation rates of staff within the Agencies, making the process fairer overall. The new process incorporates a participation percentage, bonus points for competitors who enter more than one event, and medal points for placings. The trophy will be awarded to the Agency gaining the highest number of points (combination of total participation and medal points). Every member of a competing agency taking part in the Games will earn participation points for his or her agency and medal points for placings. Retired emergency services personnel and volunteers are now eligible to compete for the Inter-Services trophy if they meet the respective criteria. Please refer to clause 3.5 of the ‘Conditions of Entry’.
Calculating Bonus Points and Total Participation Percentage: The bonus points for each agency are based on the average number of entries per competitor per agency.
For example: Agency A has 100 staff members, 50 competitors and 75 entries. The percentage of employees competing is 50%, and the average number of entries per competitor 1.50. The average number of entries per competitor is applied as a weighting to the participation percentage to give a total participation percentage of 75%. The total participation percentage is then ranked from highest to lowest, and agencies assigned a rank score.
Medal Points: Medal points will be awarded to place getters as follows: 1st (5 points), 2nd (3 points) and 3rd (1 point. Each agency’s total number of medal points is added up and also ranked from highest to lowest and agencies assigned a rank score.
Overall ranking: The rank scores from the total participation percentage and the medal points are then added together, and the agency with the highest score wins.
Scratching’s will automatically penalize the Agency the equivalent participation points. Withdrawals due to illness or injury will not attract a penalty.
