Prizes are awarded at each qualifying event to the top three scoring males and females in each of the 6 age divisions.

FINALS ROUND: World Cup format. Top 6 scoring competitors from each of the two categories (Lil’ Beasts and Big Beasts) based on cumulative scores from EACH qualifier event move on to the Finals Round.
