2021 Virtual Season Classification



At MAPS we align ourselves with WGI whenever possible. Our method of judging is the WGI adjudication system, and two divisions are also the same as WGI. We strive to offer relative scores to that which your ensemble could achieve on a national WGI scale. While contest dynamics can affect overall scores greatly, the ranges and box criteria for the MAPS classes that are also offered in WGI are identical. Any movement between classes during the season will be done in accordance with WGI rules.  


If you need further assistance please reach out to us and we will be glad to help! tom@mapsdrumlines.org
