What Class are We?

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. 

 

In addition, we do have several classes that are not offered by WGI. These are intended to serve and promote all of the varying levels of ensembles in our particular region. 

 

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