Comments on the Rules

Rules updated to match athleticism of today’s athletes

Updated terminology

Revised vault groups, event requirements, composition, execution deductions, chief judge deductions, element descriptions and element illustrations

Adopted rules specific to equipment regulations and matting requirements

element numbering system rules 6 6 7 6 8 6 and 9 6
Element Numbering SystemRules 6-6, 7-6, 8-6 and 9-6

Example – Uneven Bars #4.302

Number before decimal = Group number

UB – Group 4 = Hip Circles

Number after decimal = Element number within group

First number after decimal denotes element value:

1 = Medium

2 = Superior

3 = High Superior

4 = Bonus High Superior

#4.302 = High Superior– Clear hip circle to handstand

new terminology rule 1
New TerminologyRule 1

Element - Any M/S/HS/BHS listed in rules book

Longitudinal Axis - A line through the body from head to toe

Pike - Body bent at hips

new terminology rule 15
New TerminologyRule 1

Release - (Regrasp)

Shape - Position of the legs in respect to the torso during dance elements (i.e straddle, tuck, wolf, pike, cat, sheep, ring, split, stretched)
