Team of the Year Points

Every team at a contest will receive points, even the last place team. Additionally, every team participating in a contest will be awarded bonus points based on the number of teams at an event, up to a maximum of 35. There are no double and triple points, only the bonus points based on the number of teams competing at each event. While teams will still be rewarded for doing well in large contests, this system helps to bridge the gap between smaller and larger events, rewarding teams for their consistency on the competition circuit regardless of event size.

In order to prevent a tie in the top position, the following procedures will be applied. Look to the eleventh contest cooked by the tied teams. This contest score will be factored in with the other ten contest scores. Should this not break the tie, continue with contest twelve and so on until the tie is broken. Should a team not have cooked more than ten contests; a zero will be input for the tie breaking contest.

The following is a breakdown of the points awarded at each event. Take for example the third-place overall finisher at a 27 team event. The team will receive 200 points plus 27 bonus points based on the number of teams competing, for a total of 227 points.
