Calculating the Value of a Pair 3” Hold

- Locate the position of the base.
- The value on the right of the picture is the value of the position of the base.

- On the same page locate the position of the top within one of the spider tables.
- The value in the blue circle is the value given to the top

- Combine the value given to the top and the value given to the base to calculate the total given for the skill.

Calculating the Value of a Trio 3” Hold

- Locate the position of the base & middle
- The value underneath the picture is the value given for the pyramid position
- Take note of what group the pyramid is in, this can be found at the bottom of the page, this is dependent on the value of the base pyramid

- Locate the position of the top using the spider table that has the correct point of support position.
- The value within the grey bubble of the correct corresponding group is the value given to the top

- Combine the value given to the base pyramid and the value given to the top to calculate the total value given for the skill.

Back

Next

The base pyramid is a group 1, therefore the top value is a 1.

- Locate the position of the top using the spider table that has the correct point of support position.

Calculating the Value of a Top Motion (Pair)

- Locate the start position of the top. Ensure this is on the same page that the base position can be found.
- Follow the line along to the finishing position of the top
- The bubble containing a value at the end of the motion line shows the value of the motion. DO NOT add the value of the base position.
- NB: All motions must end in a 3” hold.

Proceed to Example

Calculating the Value of a Top Motion (Trio)

- Locate the start position of the top. Ensure this is on the same page that the base point of support can be found.
- Follow the line along to the finishing position of the top.
- At the end of the line will be four bubbles, one for each group. The bubble that corresponds with group of the base position contains the value of the top motion. (For information on finding the group of the base position, refer to- ‘Value a Trio Balance Skill’)
- NB: All motions must end in a 3” hold.

Next

Calculating the Value of a Base Motion

- Locate the first position of the base on the spider table
- Follow the line along to the second position of the base
- The bubble located at the end of the line indicates the value of the base motion.
- If the value of the top is equal to or less than 5, the value of the motion is found in the white bubble.
- If the value of the top is equal to or more than 6, the value of the motion is found in the grey bubble

- The value of the top is also added to the value of the motion. Combine the value of the motion and the value of the top to calculate the total value of the motion
- The base may also turn for additional value
- NB: All motions must finish in a 3” hold.
