GYMNASTICS NSW 2013-2016 TABLES OF DIFFICULTY MANUAL Next

2013-2016 Tables of Difficulty Manual This manual is a guide in calculating the value of skills under the 2013- 2016 Tables of Difficulty. (ToD) A copy of the ToD can be found on the FIG Website, under the Rules Section. This manual contains step by step examples. The ToD page number that the examples come from are referenced on the right of screen. Click here to go a downloadable version of the ToD Next

What would you like to do? Value a Pair Balance Skill Value a Trio Balance Skill Value a Top Motion (Pair) Value a Top Motion (Trio) Value a Base Motion Value a Dynamic Skill Calculate the value of two linked dynamic skills Value an Individual Element

1. Locate the position of the base. The value on the right of the picture is the value of the position of the base. 2. On the same page locate the position of the top within one of the spider tables. The value in the blue circle is the value given to the top 3. Combine the value given to the top and the value given to the base to calculate the total given for the skill. Calculating the Value of a Pair 3 Hold Proceed to Example Home

Example Skill for Valuing Home NextBack Short handstand.

1. Locate the position of the base. The value on the right of the picture is the value of the position of the base. p.19 of ToD Home NextBack

2. On the same page locate the position of the top within one of the spider tables. The value in the blue circle is the value given to the top Home NextBack p.19 of ToD

3. Combine the value given to the top and the value given to the base to calculate the total given for the skill. + 1 + 2 = 3 Home Back

Calculating the Value of a Trio 3 Hold 1. Locate the position of the base & middle The value underneath the picture is the value given for the pyramid position Take note of what group the pyramid is in, this can be found at the bottom of the page, this is dependent on the value of the base pyramid 2. Locate the position of the top using the spider table that has the correct point of support position. The value within the grey bubble of the correct corresponding group is the value given to the top 3. Combine the value given to the base pyramid and the value given to the top to calculate the total value given for the skill. Proceed to Example Home

Example Skill for Valuing Home NextBack Straddle on tepee.

1. Locate the position of the base & middle The value underneath the picture is the value given for the pyramid position Take note of what group the pyramid is in, this can be found at the bottom of the page This base pyramid is valued 8, therefore is a group 1. Home NextBack p.64 of ToD

2. Locate the position of the top using the spider table that has the correct point of support position. The value within the grey bubble of the correct corresponding group is the value given to the top The base pyramid is a group 1, therefore the top value is a 1. Home NextBack p.60 of ToD

3. Combine the value given to the base pyramid and the value given to the top to calculate the total value given for the skill. 8 + 1 = 9 + Home Back

Calculating the Value of a Top Motion (Pair) 1. Locate the start position of the top. Ensure this is on the same page that the base position can be found. 2. Follow the line along to the finishing position of the top 3. The bubble containing a value at the end of the motion line shows the value of the motion. DO NOT add the value of the base position. NB: All motions must end in a 3 hold. Proceed to Example Home

Example Skill for Valuing Home NextBack Press to handstand on feet

1. Locate the start position of the top. Ensure this is on the same page that the base position can be found. Home NextBack p.20 of ToD

2. Follow the line along to the finishing position of the top Home NextBack p.20 of ToD

3. The bubble containing a value at the end of the motion line shows the value of the motion. DO NOT add the value of the base position. The value of this top motion is a 3. Home Back p.20 of ToD

1. Locate the start position of the top. Ensure this is on the same page that the base point of support can be found. 2. Follow the line along to the finishing position of the top. 3. At the end of the line will be four bubbles, one for each group. The bubble that corresponds with group of the base position contains the value of the top motion. (For information on finding the group of the base position, refer to- Value a Trio Balance Skill)Value a Trio Balance Skill NB: All motions must end in a 3 hold. Calculating the Value of a Top Motion (Trio) Proceed to Example Home

Example Skill for Valuing Home NextBack Press to handstand on tepee.

1. Locate the start position of the top. Ensure this is on the same page that the base point of support can be found. This indicates the point of the support on the base. Home NextBack p.64 of ToD

2. Follow the line along to the finishing position of the top. Home NextBack p.60 of ToD

3. At the end of the line will be four bubbles, one for each group. The bubble that corresponds with group of the base position contains the value of the top motion. This base position is a Group 1, therefore this top motion is a 3. Home NextBack p.60 of ToD

1. Locate the first position of the base on the spider table 2. Follow the line along to the second position of the base 3. The bubble located at the end of the line indicates the value of the base motion. If the value of the top is equal to or less than 5, the value of the motion is found in the white bubble. If the value of the top is equal to or more than 6, the value of the motion is found in the grey bubble 4. The value of the top is also added to the value of the motion. Combine the value of the motion and the value of the top to calculate the total value of the motion 5. The base may also turn for additional value NB: All motions must finish in a 3 hold. Proceed to Example Calculating the Value of a Base Motion Home

Example Skill for Valuing Home NextBack Short handstand slide to split.

1. Locate the first position of the base on the spider table Home NextBack p.19 of ToD

2. Follow the line along to the second position of the base Home NextBack p.19 of ToD

3. The bubble located at the end of the line indicates the value of the base motion. If the value of the top is equal to or less than 5, the value of the motion is found in the white bubble. If the value of the top is equal to or more than 6, the value of the motion is found in the grey bubble This top position of this skill is valued a 3, therefore this base motion is a 1. Home NextBack p.19 of ToD

4. The value of the top is also added to the value of the motion. Combine the value of the motion and the value of the top to calculate the total value of the motion 1 + 2 = 3 + Home NextBack

5. The base may also turn for additional value This is simply added to the value of the motion Home Back

Calculating the Value of a Dynamic Skill 1. Work out the following factors of the skills Throwing position Direction of the somersault (Front or back)) Shape of the somersault (Tuck, pike or straight) Amount of quarters of the somersault Landing/catching position 2.
