LIFT CRITERIA and EVALUATION GUIDELINE

Lift: One dynamic standing lift is required in a routine.


DEFINITION

When one or more competitors are lifted to shoulder level or higher of the supporting partner(s) (showing precise position(s). 
The base competitor must be in standing position at the beginning of the lift. 
A lift may involve any combination of competitors. 
Different formations may be shown at the same (continuous, a set) period of a time. 

TOP: Lifted person            
BASE: Lifting / supporting person

CRITERIA FOR VALUE

Maximum value for the lift: 1.00 point 

The ending position must be controlled. 

​A lift must demonstrate different shapes and/or different levels before propelling (if included) the lifted person(s). 
In case of more than one lift, only the 1st lift will be evaluated. 
All the others will be received a deduction: 0.5 point for each additional lift 
All prohibited moves cannot be performed in the lift. 
Deduction: 0.5 point for missing lift 
A lift with a fall will receive “0 value” 

1.  Entry/Exit of the lift
 
Lifted Levels of the lifted partner in relation to the shoulder axis, above the shoulder level (bent/straight arms)
a) Top performing Acro, body inversion and/or rotation ON the partner(s) for Entry   0.1  
b) Top performing Acro, body inversion and/or rotation for Exit    0.1  
c) Top to shoulder level    0.1  
d) Top higher than shoulder level with Base arm(s) straight    0.2
2.  Showing physical capacities; strength, flexibility, balance a) Top shows physical capacities (1 criteria each time in the same movement) ( flex) ( strength) 0.1  
3. Changing different levels a) Top changes the level with or without different shapes 0.1  
b) Top transfers to another Base to shoulder level or higher (valued only 2 times)  0.1  
4. Showing dynamism (speed, rotation) of the competitor(s)
a) Rotation (minimum 3/4 or more) of the Top without airborne phase 
0.1  
b) Rotation of the Top around the body of the Base  0.1  
5. Showing Airborne phase with or without 1/1 rotation (any axis)
Clarification:
* Only in the Lift: 3/4 rotation (salto) is allowed to be performed. Will not be considered as a prohibited move.
a) Top in airborne clearly above Base head without 1/1 rotation (if under Base head, no value)  0.1  
b) Top in airborne under Base head with 1/1 rotation  0.1  
c) Top in airborne clearly above Base head with 1/1 rotation      0.2
Top showing different forms in the airborne phase, with same propelling action performed
in consecutive repetitions (maximum 2 times will be valued).

Prohibited lift

  • Height of the lift is higher than 2 persons standing in vertical position.
  • Direct Salto, (lifted person) from propelling
  • Entry of the lift with more than 1 Acrobatic Element.
Deduction: 0.5 point each time
