- 2 different kinds of jumps and leaps:
- Vertical:    All air turns, Freefall
- Vertical to Horizontal: Gainer
 
  • TUCK: Both legs are lifted close to the chest with knees bent.
     
  • STRADDLE: Legs are lifted in straddle position (minimum 90° angle), parallel to the floor or higher, arms and trunk extended over them.  The angle between the trunk and legs may not be more than 60°.
     
  • PIKE: After take off, the body shows a pike shape, legs together and straight, parallel to the floor or higher. The angle between the trunk and legs may not be more than 60°.
     
  • COSSACK: After take off, the body shows a pike shape, legs together parallel to the floor or higher, one leg straight, one leg bent. Angle between the trunk and legs: not be more than 60°. The angle at the knee joint may not be more than 60°.
     
  • SPLIT:  Legs are fully stretched front and back in sagittal split (180°) with upright upper body.
     
  • FRONTAL SPLIT:  Legs are fully abducted laterally (right and left) frontal (180°) with upright upper body.
