optional vault 2013

WTC Symposium 2013

round off entry hand placement mat
Round-off entry hand placement mat

May be placed on the runway for round-off entry or front handspring onto the board vaults at 8, 9, 10

May NOT be placed on the board

Must be manufactured by a gymnastics equipment company

Cannot exceed two inches in height

It must be used velcro-side down

If the mat slips it is NOT considered equipment failure. It is not a reason to repeat the vault.

apparatus specifications
Apparatus Specifications

Safety Zone Mat – Groups 4 & 5 (Round-Off Entry Vaults)

The use of the Round-off “safety zone “ mat is REQUIRED whenever Round-off entry vaults are performed at JO competitions

apparatus specifications1
Apparatus Specifications
    • Must fit snugly against the board so there is no space between the board & the safety collar mat
  • Failure to use the safety zone mat when performing a round-off entry vault would result in a “0” (VOID) score for the vault
safety z one mat
Safety Zone Mat

For vaults from Group 1, 2 & 3

  • May be placed in either direction
  • May have space between the board & the safety zone mat
small chalk marks
Small Chalk Marks
  • Athletic tape, Velcro strips or small chalk marks may be placed across the width of the vault runway, they may not exceed 2 inches in width
    • The markings should be removed no later than at the end of the rotation
  • Use of tape or excessive chalk is not permitted on the vault table or runway 0.20
touch warm up
Touch Warm-up
  • Touch warm-up for vault is not regulated by time
  • Each Level 8, 9 & 10 gymnast is guaranteed three warm-up vaults. Each Level 6 & 7 gymnast is guaranteed two warm-up vaults.
  • Each gymnast is allowed one run-back from the board
  • Each gymnast is allowed to stand on the vault table and jump or salto off one time
vault competition
Vault Competition
  • The gymnast is allowed 3 attempts to successfully complete one or both vaults
  • If the gymnast makes contact with the springboard or vaulting table but doesn’t go over, it is considered a vault and is scored as a void vault
The hand placement mat and the safety zone mat are not considered part of the vault apparatus
  • If the gymnast falls during her running approach to the vault, but does not contact the board, it is considered a balk and is counted as one of the 3 attempts
The Vault number must be flashed at all Optional State level and above competitions.
  • There is no deduction for performing a vault that is different than the vault announced or flashed, provided it is a vault allowed at the specific level of the gymnast.
  • The vault performed determines the Start Value, not the vault number flashed or announced.
  • There is no longer a deduction for not flashing the vault number (or announcing the vault.) Judge does not signal until it is announced or flashed.
vault without signal
Vault without Signal
  • Performance of a vault without a signal from the Chief Judge
    • Vault is ignored even if both judges see it
    • Gymnast has the opportunity to perform 2 more vaults
    • Chief Judge applies a 0.50 penalty to the average of the next completed vault
There is no deduction if the coach, when standing between the board and the vault table, makes contact with the safety zone mat or inadvertently touches the vaulting table
landing of vaults
Landing of Vaults

All vaults must land on the bottom of the feetfirst. Failing to do so will result in a 0.00 score (void)

allowable vaults
Allowable Vaults
  • Each level (6, 7, 8, 9, 10) has a Specific Value Chart
  • Some vault numbers have been changed, but the values remain the same.
  • If either vault performed by a Level 6, 7, 8 or 9 gymnast is a restricted vault for that level, it is a zero final score. (void)
bonus for vault
Bonus for Vault
  • For Level 10 only, there will be a select group of 10.0 vaults (if performed successfully, without a fall or spot) that will receive a +0.10 BP
  • Vaults eligible for bonus are highlighted on the vault value chart
  • Each judge adds the +0.10 BP to their final score before submitting
  • Must visibly indicate the bonus was awarded
All group 5 vaults described as having a 1/1 turn in the first flight phase with a backward salto in the second flight phase may be performed with ¾ to 1/1 LA turn in the first flight phase
specific apparatus deductions
Specific Apparatus Deductions

Deductions that occur in first and second flight:
