rules and regulations

  • Measure of Body Composition is performed applying the Skin-fold method with Lang Calipers at 3 sites on the body.  The body composition of each team member will be totaled and averaged to give the team one score.  The same method will be used for the final score.  The winning team will be determined based the percent of improvement during the 12-week period (Jan – Apr).  Other Body Composition methods may be used if necessary or under unforeseen circumstances. Upon the approval of the 911 Challenge Staff.
  • The primary objective of the Challenge is to lose fat and gain muscle.  If a team shows a loss of muscle at the end of the 12-week period, even if only one member of the team loses muscle, it will affect the entire team and therefore, the team will not be eligible to win.  Therefore, it is recommended to lose fat slowly and carefully to spare muscle tissue.  Follow the NEW & IMPROVED 911 program journal available on-line following registration.
  • TEAM Photos must be emailed to the 911 staff either one before or after the weigh-in and weigh-out.   Make sure a Team Name Sign is positioned in front of the members using a white sign with Large Font Bold Letters to maximize resolution.
