2. CLARIFICATIONS

  • Propelling definition:
Propelling: defined as when a competitor is thrown by a partner into an airborne position with no contact with partner.
 
  • Lift:
    • A lift begins when the base(s) is in standing position and the top(s) is on shoulder or higher level, if the initial base(s) position is NOT in the standing.
    • Value for entry of the lift will be given according the complexity of the entry movement.
    • Static Pyramids as starting position of the Routine, will not be considered as lifts; they will be considered as movements from the General Content

  • Acrobatic Elements with support:
Acrobatic elements with support (with help from partners), will not be counted as acrobatic elements, and will not count as lifts regardless to the height of the movement. Will be counted as “Collaboration”. See example below:

  • Combination of Acrobatic + Difficulty elements:
In order to combine acrobatic with difficulty elements, Acro elements must land in 2 feet at the same time, and this landing is the takeoff of the difficulty element, without any  stop, hesitation or transition in between.
 
  • Compulsory elements for Age Group:
All members of the MP, TR, GR must perform the same compulsory difficulty element at the same time (i.e. all 1/1 turn straddle support, or all members straddle support). If some members perform straddle support, and other members 1/1 turn straddle support, the element will receive 0 value, but no deduction for missing compulsory element.

 
 
  • Elements in Aerobic Step:
Difficulty elements 0.1 and 0.2 value may be performed in Aerobic Step routines without any CJP deduction.
