ARTICLE 5 EVALUATION OF THE EXERCISE
Components of the Evaluation • D- Score (Content) • DV: Difficulty Value • 8 highest Difficulties including the Dismount (UB, BB and FX) • CR: Composition Requirements 5 x 0.50 each • CV: Connection Value(0.10 or 0.20)
Components of the Evaluation • E- Score (from 10.00) • Execution • Artistry
Components of the Evaluation Content D Score
DIFFICULTY VALUE DV • The D- panel will always recognize the DV unless there is a failure to meet the technical requirement of the element • The same element is recognized only one time as a DV. If performed a 2nd time DV is not considered • A- 0.10 • B- 0.20 • C- 0.30 • D- 0.40 • E- 0.50 • F- 0.60 • G- 0.70
Recognition of DV • Arabian elements are considered Forward Element • Onodi, Arabian tucked, piked or stretched, double arabian tucked (and with ½ turn), piked or stretched,
Elements are considered the same: • If they are listed under the same number and: • UB – are performed with or without a hop grip change on UB • Giants forward and backward with legs together or straddled with hips bent or stretched are the same
Elements are considered the same • Dance: • are performed in side or cross position (BB) • Jumps with 1/1 turn or more performed in side position may be awarded 1 DV higher. (Unless listed otherwise in the Table of Elements) • If the same element is performed in cross and in side position, the DV will be awarded one time only in chronological order
Dance Elements • Jumps with start from side position and finish in cross position , or vice versa, - consider as elements performed in cross position
Elements are considered the same • Dance elements: • With take off from one or two feet with the same leg position • i.e. wolf hop (take off from one leg) and wolf jump (take off from two legs) • Land on one or both feet (BB) • Land on one or both feet or in prone position (FX) • Turns in the forward or backward direction (BB and FX)
Elements are considered the same • Acro Elements: - Acro elements land on one or both feet (BB and FX)
Different Elements • Elements are considered different with • Different numbers • Or …….
Different Elements The same number, when • Different body positions (Tuck, Pike or Stretch) in saltos • The legs are together or straddled in saltos (UB) • The legs are in cross or side split position in dance elements (FX)
Different Elements • There are different degrees of turns 1/2, 1/1, 1½ - (See Article 7 for specific apparatus requirements) • Support of one or two arms or free • Acro elements with take off from one or both legs (FX)
If elements all in the same box- then they are considered to be the same element • - Examples: • - On BB: Landing on 1 foot or 2 feet will NOT make an element different if they have the same number in the COP • - e.g. Aerial Walkover, Aerial WO to 2 feet, Aerial WO to scale- these will all be the same element & cannot be repeated for DV or used for CR or CV in another series • - e.g. Front salto off 1 foot to 1 foot is same as front salto from 1 foot to scale.
Recognition of elements occurs in chronological order • In case of technical failure elements will be credited one DV lower or recognized as another element in the table of difficulties (or no DV)
Recognition of Elements • If an element is credited one DV lower due to technical failure and is later performed again in the exercise this is a repetition and has no DV. • E.g. A Giant 1/1 that is devalued to B- due to the angle of turn completion – if performed a 2nd time in the exercise and the 1/1 to handstand – no DV
Recognition of Elements • If an element is recognized as another element (from the table of Elements) due to failure to meet the technical requirements and later is performed with correct technique they may both receive DV. • E.g. A switch split leap Devalued due to first leg not at 45º to split leap – later performed correctly – both receive DV as both are in the Table of Elements.
Composition Requirements • Described in the respective Apparatus Articles • A maximum of 2.50 is possible • One element may fulfill more than one CR – however an element may not be repeated to fulfill another CR • Only elements from the Table of Elements may fulfill CR
Composition Requirements • Dismount Principle • No dismount, A or B dismount – 0.00 • C- dismount – 0.30 • D-or higher dismount – 0.50
Connection Value • The CV elements do not necessarily have to be part of the counting DV • All elements must be from the Table of Elements • CV on UB, BB and FX is evaluated at: • +0.10 or • +0.20
Connection Value • All acrobatic flight elements (FX – without hand support only) and dance elements as specified in the CV formulas may be used. • Devalued elements may be used for CV • In order to be recognized the connection must be performed without a fall. • Elements may not be repeated in another connection for CV.
Connection Value • Elements on UB & acro elements on BB and FX can be performed 2x within 1 connection • Will not receive value a second time but, • Will be eligible for connection value • E.g. UB – Tkatchev, Tkatchev BB- Front aerial, front aerial FX –whip, whip, double back pike salto
Connection Value • Recognition occurs in chronological order • The order of succession of elements within a connection may be freely chosen on BB, UB and FX (unless there is a special requirement for CV) • All connections must be direct; only on FX can acrobatic connections be indirect
Direct ConnectionsAcro or Dance/Acro Without: • Hesitation or stop between elements • Extra step between elements • Foot touching BB between elements • Loss of balance between elements • Additional arm/leg swing
Direct Connections of Leaps & Acro In same direction landing from the 1st element, and immediate take-off/rebound into the 2nd element landing from the 1st element on one leg and placing the free leg with an immediate rebound from the take-off leg into the 2nd element.
Timing Connections ofAcrobatic elements in different directionforward/backward and Dance/Acro • Feeling of continuous dynamic rhythm without slowing down or stopping between landing and take-off. • There is no rebound effect, as is performed with 2 acro elements moving in the same direction - forward or backward.
With the connection of 2 or more elements, the 2nd (middle) element may be used twice • 1st time as the last element of a connection • 2nd time as the first element to begin a new connection Rd-off, flic flac, whip 1/1, double back pike salto, front layout
Indirect Connections • Only in acrobatic series on FX: • Are those in which directly connected acrobatic elements with flight phase and hand support (from Group 3 e.g. round-off, flic flac, etc. as preparatory elements) are performed between saltos • The recognition of direct or indirect connections on FX should be to the benefit of the gymnast
Short Exercises • For the execution and artistry of presentation, the gymnast may earn a maximum score of : • 10.0 if 7 or more elements are performed • 6.00 if 5 - 6 elements are performed • 4.00 if 3 - 4 elements are performed • 2.00 if 1 - 2 elements are performed • 0.00 if no elements are performed • The D Panel will inform the App. Secretary of the max. E score.
Short Exercise Example • D score DV (C+A+0+E) +0.90 CR # 4 (Dbl BA+LA salto) & 5 Dismount +1.00 D score = 1.90 • Max. E Score may be 4.00 Total Deductions - 4.10 Final score (D) 1.90 + (E) 0.0 = 1.90 • When the E score is 0.00 or is a negative number (-) the gymnast will receive the value of the D score Front layout 1/1 Rd-off 1/1 in double back Salto (WITHOUT LANDING ON FEET FIRST) Double front salto
Article 6 Components of the Evaluation E Score
Body Posture • There are two type of deductions: • Body posture in an element: body alignment in each element 0.1 e.g., feet not pointed each time • Body posture for entire exercise: applied on floor and beam only for movements used for choreography. This deduction is not applicable on vault or bars.
Landing FaultsMovements to Maintain BalanceIf there is no fall the maximum landing deductions may not exceed 0.80.
Very Large step or jump (more than shoulder width) 0.30 The Guideline for shoulder width is to consider the space between the heel of the front foot and the toes of the back foot.
Lunges • Lunges are considered as a step. Deduction 0.10/0.30, only for ACRO elements on FX. Landing should be with legs together and in control. • There is no deduction for a lunge after a dance elements instead there may be deductions for “Lack of Balance” after turns, jumps/hops/leaps of 0.10 or 0.30.
Brushing/touching apparatus/mats, but not falling against the apparatus Examples: Vault – Gymnast lands in deep squat and touches mat with leotard (not support): 0.50 for deep squat + steps + 0.30 for brush (maximum 0.80 for landing deductions + other deductions (distance, etc.) UB – Gymnast lands, steps uncontrolled toward UB apparatus and brushes an upright of the base or brushes the mat with a hand (not support) 0.30 brush +other deductions (maybe too close to apparatus, steps, etc.) BB – Gymnast lands from tuck salto on the beam but touches/brushes the beam infront with hand (no support on beam of grasp beam) 0.30 for brush + other deductions (position on landing, steps, etc.) FX- Gymnast lands low from double pike salto backward and brushes floor with hand (not support) 0.30 for brush + other deductions (position on landing, step, etc.)
Article 6. Body posture on landing • The new point of reference is the head for body position upon landing: • Head at hip level - 0.10 • Head at knee level - 0.30 • The point of reference upon landing in a squat is the hips. • Hips slightly above knees – 0.10 • Hips below the level of knees – 0.30 • Deep squat – 0.50
Body Posture • Land from • Land from 0.00 0.00 0.10 0.00 0.50 0.30 0. 30 0.10
Attempt without performing an element - 0.30 • BB and FX: Example: • BB: run, but stop and no element performed. • FX: When gymnast attempts an acro line but performs at least one element do not apply deduction for “Attempt without performance of an element”, only landing deductions.
Falls • Support on mat with 1 or 2 hands 1.00 • Fall on mat to knees or hips 1.00 • Fall on or against apparatus 1.00
