Author: I want my dancer to qualify by winning against their toughest competition...not their weakest.
Subject: I would say that's already handled in requiring dancers to move into OC the following calendar year or immediately following their second win in a subsequent year....
In reply to: Concerned 's message, "The purpose of the second chance is just that - a second chance to compete to try and get the wins required to move up. It's POOR sportsmanship, if your dancer already have their required wins, to compete in the second chance & take a chance away from someone that's trying to get their wins. The right thing to do if you've already paid but have earned all your wins is to step aside/bow out of the second chance competition - sacrifice the fees ($35.00-40.00) - for the sake of the other dancers & their families." on Thu, October 10, 10:29:58am

Especially if two wins over calendar years will force them into an OC group they may not be ready for only to face not placing once they're there. This is competition.There is no reason to essentially "let" someone win. As long as they remain gracious and humble there is no issue. And even the best prelim dancer on a winning streak can be knocked down a peg or two by not winning them all...it happens and ideally teaches them to lose gracefully and that they will in fact not always win them all. A great lesson before OC.
