6 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Tolerated Differences Tolerated difference between middle scores = = = = = 0.50 Below 7.50 = 0.60

7 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Protests

8 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Only Difficulty score maybe protested. No protests for Artistry and Execution.  Verbal notice immediately after the showing of the score and no later than at the end of the next routine  Written protest given to Technical Committee with fee  Person authorized to receive protest must note the time when it is handed in Protests

9 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  One coach will be accredited on the competition floor to submit protest  There will be a specific area on the podium for coach to view their gymnast’s routine  No late protests accepted  Can only protest your own country’s performance  4 minutes deadline for written protests Protests

10 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Coach communicating includes oral, gestures, exclamations and clapping – 0.50 Changes to Technical Deductions from Judge Coordinator

11 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  “A” difficulties are primarily regarded as Body Movements  Supplementary “A” difficulties can be considered as Body Movement Elements reflected on Difficulty 1 Sheets  D1 penalties are given at the end of the final score not on each D1 sheet DIFFICULTY 1

12 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Minimum 8 GCO in an exercise of 10 – 12 difficulties (Senior)  Minimum 6 GCO in an exercise of 9 difficulties (Senior)  Minimum 7 GCO in an exercise of 8 – 10 difficulties (Junior)  Minimum 5 GCO in an exercise of 7 or less (Junior) DIFFICULTY 1

13 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Plus a maximum of 4 non compulsory Body Movement Groups (NGCO) which can be chosen from 1/2/3 different groups.  Hoop must be represented by all Body Movement Groups with no more than 4 or less than 2 from each group DIFFICULTY 1

14 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Plus a maximum of 4 non compulsory Body Movement Groups (NGCO) which can be chosen from 1/2/3 different groups. Hoop must be represented by all Body Movement Groups with no more than 4 or less than 2 from each group. I n rope the following examples are acceptable:- (8 Leaps/1 balance/1 pivot/ 1 flex) or (8 Leaps/3 pivots/1 balance) or (10 Leaps/2 Flex) or (10 Leaps) DIFFICULTY 1 Examples in Rope of correct use of GCO and NGCO’s

15 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Identical Shape (relationship between body and legs) is counted only once but maybe repeated only in a series. Series is applicable to leaps and pivots. DIFFICULTY 1 Validity of Different Shapes !

16 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Identical shape between the legs and trunk may not be repeated irrespective on the number of rotations or the starting position DIFFICULTY 1 Validity of Different Shapes !

17 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  In mixed difficulties the shape of each component can be repeated once isolated or in a different combination. DIFFICULTY 1 Mixed Difficulties !

18 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  To be valid all difficulties must be in connection with the apparatus DIFFICULTY 1 Mixed Difficulties !

19 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Values of difficulties are specified in the Code of Points commencing from A = 0.10 to J = 1.00 however difficulties may exceed this value dependant on the criteria.  All difficulties must be performed with a mastery base. If the base is not present the difficulty is cancelled. The mastery base can be performed at the beginning, during or towards the end of the difficulty DIFFICULTY 1 Values of Difficulties

20 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia DIFFICULTY 1 Example for Clubs

21 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia DIFFICULTY 1 Example for Ribbon Further details of mastery bases will be outlined in D2

22 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Difficulty must be performed without major alteration to the basic characteristics specified to each body group Examples of major alterations to the difficulty:-  Cossack Leaps, Stag Leaps, Split Leaps  Front Scale with Back Split Balance, Ring Balance, Slow Turns  Fouette Pivots, Progressive Pivots, Attitude Pivots  Front Split with Back Bend of the Trunk, Illusions, Walkover with split in different positions DIFFICULTY 1 Value of Difficulties

23 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Loss of apparatus cancels difficulty  Loss of balance with support of one or two hands or fall  Statism of the apparatus  Any of the above faults will cancel the value of the difficulty  If the difficulty is performed with a lower value it is cancelled except for rotations in pivots and flexibilities DIFFICULTY 1 Value of Difficulties

24 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Any difficulty performed with a higher value will be given the value reflected on the form DIFFICULTY 1 Examples of Flexibilities with Rotation !

25 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Follow and check every difficulty according to their performance sequence and add, if necessary the difficulties not listed on the form in chronological order which are a “B: value or higher.  Total the value of the difficulties up to the number reflected on the form. For example, the Form has 12 difficulties; the gymnast performs a B and C difficulty during your evaluation. You add up the first 12 and cross off the last two difficulties. Penalty = 0.30 for each difficulty “B” value or higher See page 23 for table of penalties for slow turns, incorrect additions, or value of Difficulties DIFFICULTY 1 Evaluation of Difficulty D1

26 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  New values and criteria need to be learnt.  Split leap is the base jump of the majority of leaps of jumps. As the difficulties have been reduced to 12 the Technical Committee did not want to loose the value of the “leg jump” and therefore decided to increase its base value due to its importance.  Any part of the leg may be in contact with the head not just the foot and it must be closed. DIFFICULTY 1 Jumps and Leaps

27 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  This is the predominant movement of the trunk and cannot just have the neck bending backwards. The chest and waist must bend. Back bend does not mean the predominant movement of the leg raised high but the predominant movement of the trunk backwards.  Shape needs to be clearly shown in flight. Take off from one foot then there needs to be two movements of the legs, front and back legs one after the other but no see saw allowed. Logically one leg takes off a bit earlier but position should not rock. DIFFICULTY 1 Jumps and Leaps

28 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Incomplete rotation the difficulty is given no value. Note: The shape is taken when the foot leaves the floor.  Greater value does not change the value of the difficulty  Split Leap landing in Back Split “With or Without Help” – New clarification “Catch of the leg during flight is deleted. Leap does not have to have arch or ring. Even if leap is performed with the backbend it does not change the value.” DIFFICULTY 1 Jumps and Leaps

29 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Right than left leg take off or Right - left - right leg take off These can only be used once in a routine  Two feet take off and then If the form is from one or two feet is change of form. DIFFICULTY 1 Jumps and Leaps - Special Cases

30 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  New values, symbols and criteria need to be learnt  Any part of the leg may be in contact with the head not just the foot and it must be closed  Tour Lent must be done with a maximum of ¼ heel movement each time. If it is performed with more than a ¼ the slow turn is not evaluated. The commencement of the slow turn must show a fixed balance shape then the tour lent commences. It must be smooth and slow with high releve. Foot position is very important. DIFFICULTY 1 Balances

31 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Upper line of the body must be parallel to the floor with 20 degree tolerance on this upper line only Trunk at the horizontal with leg high up must show the back flat and the leg full split position DIFFICULTY 1 Balances

32 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Fixed position must be shown at the start and the end with most importantly correct alignment for the difficulty to be given value. Refer to Balance # 30 (F)  2 small continuous heel movements required in the shape of Balance # 34 (H) DIFFICULTY 1 Balances with Circle Movements of the Leg In Suspension

33 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Front Horizontal to Arabesque. The base of the balance is “B” apply criteria to the base value and the difficulty can be performed in any direction on the same level. B = F. Refer to criteria page 36 paragraph  Attitude to Un held Front Split. The base of the balance is “B” apply the criteria to the base value and the difficulty can be performed in any direction. B = G Refer to criteria page 36 paragraph DIFFICULTY 1 Balances with leg movement in suspension and/or trunk

34 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Note: When performing the change of direction with the leg in suspension on the same level, the leg must maintain the same level through the hip rotation. Turn out is therefore essential during the entire rotation through the hip. When performing a change in level and direction with the leg in suspension, the foot may drop down during the progression to achieve the final shape. DIFFICULTY 1 Balances with leg movement in suspension and/or trunk

35 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Italian Fouette # Use criteria Page 36 paragraph Fouette Balance  Continuous Movement of the leg front, attitude with back bend of the trunk with ½ turn of the Trunk # 34  Front Scale Split With Help # 18  Side Scale Split with Help # 21  Back Scale with leg High up # 23b (G) DIFFICULTY 1 New balances in Code of Points

36 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Leg high up, sideways, trunk at horizontal, side with help # 41 (C)  Leg high up, sideways, trunk at horizontal, side with help # 43 (D)  At horizontal, back trunk forward # 45 (B)  Leg high up back, with trunk at the horizontal front # 47 (B)  Leg in attitude, trunk at the horizontal front # 49 (B) Kneeling balances are designed to be used with creative choreography DIFFICULTY 1 New Kneeling Balances in Code of Points

37 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Not much change to pivots in this code, however the repetition criteria must be noted.  New values and criteria need to be learnt  Rotations evaluated until heel drop  Reminder different pivots are pivots with different shape regardless of the number of rotations performed  To complete pivots you may raise the leg to denote the end of the pivot without execution deduction DIFFICULTY 1 Pivots

38 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  20 degree tolerance with the position of the trunk  Any part of the leg may be in contact with the head not just the foot and it must be closed.  No restriction in the number of rotations performed  Can connect different forms of fouette as category pivots DIFFICULTY 1 Pivots

39 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Each form can be used separately or in combination DIFFICULTY 1 Example of Acceptable use Combination Pivots verses use of isolated pivots

40 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Progressive pivots must be performed smoothly and must not end dropping down onto knee. This is incorrect completion of the pivot ( major characteristic) = 0 Value  Progressive pivots must finish in the last shape to be evaluated  Category pivots are the transition from one shape to the other. Before the end of the basic rotation and or the beginning of the following is accepted. DIFFICULTY 1 Pivots

41 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia As long as the transition from one shape to the other is towards the end of the first rotation or at the beginning of the second, the change of shape will be accepted but there must be a minimum total rotation of 720 degrees.  Refer to # 5 (I) Combination pivot and flexibility. Can increase the rotations in the pivot and or the flex. DIFFICULTY 1 Pivots

42 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Most new flexibility difficulties are regarded as dynamic which means passing through shapes and not showing a stop in a fixed position.  Demi Pointe allowed but does not change the value of the flexibility  Errata allows for slow turn to be added to any flexibility as long as it is smooth. Limit the same as for slow turns in Balances, i.e. 1 in 3  Errata Total Body Wave which can be added to any shape but must finish in the requested end position without interruption DIFFICULTY 1 Flexibilities

43 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Simple flexibilities Lines # 1 -6 in the Code of Points.  Must be performed all turned out without dropping the level of the leg during the transition from front to back.  These are referred to as dynamic flexibilities  Lines # 7 – 10 in the Code of Points – Free Movement of the Leg.  These are designed for gymnasts who have the same flexibility on the same leg from front to back.  These are referred to as dynamic flexibilities. DIFFICULTY 1 Explanation of how flexibilities are required to be performed

44 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Lines # in the Code of Points.  Must show no addition support, no break in movement.  Position of the trunk – 20 degree tolerance on horizontal position.  If Tour Lent is combined, movement must be smooth and continuous.  Must show a fixed shape.  Lines # 16 – 19 in the Code of Points.  Can down grade the value due to rotation aspect of these difficulties – refer to lines & 19. DIFFICULTY 1 Explanation of how flexibilities are required to be performed

45 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Front Split back bend of trunk  Do not need to hold back leg for difficulty to be valid.  Can increase the value through rotation according to the criteria.  Line # 28  Arch does not need to be as deep as shown in the picture.  Lines # 29 – 31  Need to show shape but must not be fixed for too long. DIFFICULTY 1 Explanation of how flexibilities are required to be performed

46 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Errata Note concerning 31D & F.  The legs or the body (slow turn) must be one movement.  However the amplitude of the leg movements is determined by the type of apparatus handling. i.e. in the case of an unstable balance of the apparatus on the legs, the legs are stationery.  It the apparatus is not in an unstable position, the legs must move for the difficulty to be valid. DIFFICULTY 1 Explanation of how flexibilities are required to be performed

47 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia DIFFICULTY 2

48 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  To be valid the mastery with or without throws must be performed without technical fault of the apparatus.  Each mastery element counts only once, eg identical body movement element and identical handling is regarded as repetition.  Exception to this is the succession of 2/3 identical leaps passing into the rope including skips and hops.  The composition of the routine must include elements from the technical groups but not all technical groups are specified as bases for mastery. Do not mix up technical groups with mastery bases. DIFFICULTY 2

49 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Body in space are not necessarily difficulties, it is the position of the body as described on Page 77 of the Code of Points.  If a body movement has two criteria, i.e. flight and rotation they both can be used However, the rules on body rotation must be adhered to. Refer to “Notes Valid for Mastery with or Without Throws” – Page 84 in the Code of Points. DIFFICULTY 2 Clarification on Criteria for Mastery Without Throws

50 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Transmission of changing apparatus from one hand to another without sight  Across shoulders is acceptable. It only has to be out of sight at some point where you loose sight DIFFICULTY 2 Clarification on Criteria for Mastery Without Throws

51 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Performed in a Series – This relates to the apparatus handling. There must be a minimum of 2 changes in planes, directions or levels. The exception of the rule is 2 or 3 identical jumps/leaps, skips or hops passing into the rope/hoop and with 2 or 3 identical passing of jumps or leaps into the ribbon provided there is alteration of snakes and spirals. DIFFICULTY 2 Criteria for Series

52 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  In the case of identical passing into the rope or hoop with turning split leaps, there is two criteria to be observed (flight and rotation), The value of the mastery criteria related to the passing is also multiplied by the number of leaps performed. DIFFICULTY 2 Criteria for Series

53 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia The errata includes skips and hops up to a maximum of 3 DIFFICULTY 2 Criteria for Series

54 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  New symbol for passing through with skips or hops  Passing through with leaps or jumps. The Technical Committee feels that to pass through the rope in a jete with turn, the rope is already turning backwards and therefore change of direction cannot be claimed. Further errata may still clarify this due to discussion at the course DIFFICULTY 2 Rope Clarifications

55 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Mills are not included as handling as mastery  Rotation of the folded rope is not valid mastery  Spirals are fast circular movements of the wrist with open rope held in open hand DIFFICULTY 2 Rope Clarifications

56 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Basic roll is in a straight line. If the body or the arms move, change of direction can be claimed.  No series is required. I single rotation is around the hand is acceptable. However no opportunity to claim a series. See table  Information in brackets have been removed and one or more rotations have been added DIFFICULTY 2 Hoop Clarifications

57 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Basic roll is in a straight line. If the body or the arms move, change of direction can be claimed.  Additional criterion  Rotation of the hand around the apparatus  Circular movements of the hand  Circles or rotations with balanced ball on one hand DIFFICULTY 2 Ball Clarifications

58 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Change in Symbol for circles of the clubs  Addition of unstable balance symbol  Rolls includes DIFFICULTY 2 Clubs Clarifications

59 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  If there is less than 4 waves mastery does not count  As gymnast releves the arm may go up to swing the ribbon. During the rotation there should be another circle of the arm and then the criteria is valid.  The succession of 2 or 3 equal passing of leaps and jumps into the ribbon provided there is alteration of snakes and spirals. DIFFICULTY 2 Ribbon Clarifications

60 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia Important Note  If there are two criteria as and unstable balance as two criteria in the difficulty, it is important to recognise the two mastery bases as follows:- DIFFICULTY 2 Ribbon Clarifications !

61 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  The inclusion of Mastery with throws with and are new.  There are specific Mastery Throws relating to the apparatus on Pages 81/82 with increase in values  There are specific Mastery Catches relating to the apparatus on Page 83 MASTERY WITH THROWS

62 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Catch while passing through the apparatus in flight. Take note of the difference between catch and pass through to the criteria for this mastery catch.  Catch with one hand without sight is a new Mastery Catch MASTERY WITH THROWS

63 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Catch while passing through the apparatus in flight. Take note of the difference between catch and pass through to the criteria for this mastery catch.  Catch with one hand without sight is a new Mastery Catch MASTERY WITH THROWS

64 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Note the criteria for small throws and catches together with the specific small throws and catches specific to particular apparatus.  Note the criteria for small throw and small catch in a position of the floor requires change in position on the floor MASTERY WITH THROWS Mastery with Small Throws

65 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Any description denoting walkover means rotation on the horizontal axis  Vertical axis - Chaines, Pivot difficulties, jumps/leaps with 180 degree rotation etc  Horizontal axis – walkovers, cartwheels, illusions forward or backward rolls. Not shoulder rolls due to sight of the apparatus.  Risk is only evaluated once the apparatus is in flight and the body is in rotation on the vertical/horizontal axis with or without passing on the floor MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk With Throw

66 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Principle is gymnast must loose sight during the last rotation which must be on the horizontal axis. Risk finishes in the catch of the apparatus but maybe linked to a body movement without interruption of the loss of visual contact. It is important to note that if there is no loss of sight in the last rotation the risk value in its entirety will not be evaluated MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk With Throw

67 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Principle is gymnast must loose sight during the last rotation which must be on the horizontal axis. Risk finishes in the catch of the apparatus but maybe linked to a body movement without interruption of the loss of visual contact. It is important to note that if there is no loss of sight in the last rotation the risk value in its entirety will not be evaluated MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk With Throw

68 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Principle is gymnast must loose sight during the last rotation which must be on the horizontal axis. Risk finishes in the catch of the apparatus but maybe linked to a body movement without interruption of the loss of visual contact. It is important to note that if there is no loss of sight in the last rotation the risk value in its entirety will not be evaluated MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk With Throw

69 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Principle is gymnast must loose sight during the last rotation which must be on the horizontal axis. Risk finishes in the catch of the apparatus but maybe linked to a body movement without interruption of the loss of visual contact. It is important to note that if there is no loss of sight in the last rotation the risk value in its entirety will not be evaluated MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk With Throw

70 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Refer to Pages 84/85 of Code of Points where  Increase in rotations under the flight of the apparatus  Change in level  Change in axis   Catch without sight  Catch with roll  Catch with re throw MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk With Throw Increasing the Value of Risk

71 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  This can only be done on the horizontal axis, walkovers, cartwheels, illusions, fish flops etc  The value can be included by commencing on the floor  With rebound of the apparatus  Good examples are rolling of the apparatus over at least two segments during walkover MASTERY WITH THROWS Risk Without Throw

72 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  All Pre Acro elements realised with risk can be repeated a maximum of two times; isolated or in a series  Pre Acro used for risk follow norms for artistry  Pre Acro used outside risk can only be used once; isolated or in a series  If a body difficulty is used in conjunction with the catch of risk, it must be declared on the form MASTERY WITH THROWS Notes regarding Pre Acro elements and Difficulty Elements with Risk !

73 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Must be perfectly connected to the music and the movement must be interwoven with the music  Appropriately cut music is essential to avoid penalties  3 Fundamentals required – Rhythm, Melody and Harmony ARTISTRY Music

74 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  This is the structure of the musical piece  Easy to identify  Body movements must be in accordance with the specific piece of music  Not always necessary to be meticulous with all aspects of the rhythm but the choreography should follow of the general rhythm of the music.  Rhythm is the same as the tempo of the music  Difficult to find a gymnast who performs perfectly to the music  Dance part of the routine must be respected  Movements should find the balance between accentuating and creating harmony  One of the important aspects of rhythm is the accent  Strong accent has more appeal to the audience and this is often reflected in throws and catches ARTISTRY Music Rhythm

75 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  This is a succession of notes rhythmically organised which presents an accomplished musical sense  Melody represents the part of the music which touches our hearts, which makes us want to sing for example.  It represents a leading theme throughout to a conclusion  Similar parts of melody are included in rhythm  Melody indicates the characteristics of the movement and guides the gymnast in the construction of the routine  Melody is constructed to the rules of Western European music – you have to adopt the composition of the music to the movement, eg a jump could follow an accent (rhythm)  Choreography can play between rhythm and the melody to be inventive  Musical phrase is part of the melodic line repeated in different forms or tempos  Phrase is composed of the melody (the sentence of the music) this is vital to the composition closely related to the harmony. ARTISTRY Music Melody

76 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Harmony, rhythm and melody define the choice of music making it in harmony.  Some gymnasts can feel the music which helps with being in harmony with the music  Gymnasts must cover the music with linking movements, no segmentation  The gymnasts must convey her sole and the deep feeling of the music  Linking between the routine and music is often not there partly because there has been too much concentration in the difficulties. This must now be retrieved again in the use of music ARTISTRY Music Harmony

77 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  This is a unified message using all possible movements of the body and apparatus with a guiding theme from beginning to the end. Far too often choreography has no story to it.  Must utilise sufficient connecting elements, technical, aesthetic and emotional – in relationship with the music, in order to assist to develop the theme of the music  Movements must be logically connected: passing from one movement or movement sequence to another should be logically connected. Often no consistency or continuity to build an image ARTISTRY Choreography !

78 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Impact of linking not being performed correctly and with unity can lead to 1.00 point deducting being made for “Interruption in the Logical Connections of Movements”  Body movement difficulties must be evenly distributed and not lumped together in one or two sections of the routine ARTISTRY Choreography

79 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  These must not be segmented but should have the participation of all segments. By using these correctly, emotion is determined from here  Expressivity is created by ensuring that body movements are accompanied by movement of the head, arms, extension of shoulders and lengthening of the neck. This is achieved by the connecting elements in the routine and the movement should aim to touch the heart of the audience.  Variety in the choice of body movement elements from types of travelling to different types of arm and trunk movements, jumps, turns, balances etc  There needs to be a reason for the starting position, it conveys the beginning of the story of feeling of the choreography 1 ARTISTRY Choreography Choice of Body Elements

80 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Variety in the way the apparatus is handled is vital  Different planes, levels, directions and ways of using the apparatus are essential  Throws must have as must variety as possible. Variety in the planes, directions of the throw together with the position the gymnast throws from – on the floor, standing etc.  If there is insufficient variety in throws and catches, for more than two throws/catches in the same plane – direction or the same level or the same mode 0.10 deduction for each predominance ≠  At least 3 Risks are required with a deduction of 0.20 for each missing risk ARTISTRY Choreography Choice of Elements with Apparatus

81 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Knowledge of all pre acrobatic elements is important to ensure correct deductions are applied for unauthorized pre acro, or performed with unauthorized technique or without coordination of the apparatus  The repetition rule regarding pre acro elements was covered in our discussions with Difficulty 2 ARTISTRY Choreography Pre Acrobatic Elements

82 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  New Artistry Sheet is a guideline for the applicable deductions  No confirmation if this sheet will be used during competitions  Necessary for judge to complete a check sheet with questions which is considered when evaluating this component of the routine.  Check sheet should denote common deductions, examples below ARTISTRY Choreography Judging Artistry

83 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Music  Background Yes/No  Unity  Bad cut of music  Character– How many times?  Rhythm – How many times? ARTISTRY Choreography Judging Artistry

84 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Choreography  Linking  Distribution of Difficulties  Contact of Apparatus Yes/No  Static  Risk  Acro ARTISTRY Choreography Judging Artistry

85 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Choreography  Variety Apparatus Throws Body Use of Space  Segmentation Yes/No  Segmentation overall Yes/No  Unity  Dynamics This check sheet should ensure you obtain the correct penalties for artistry. ARTISTRY Choreography Judging Artistry

86 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia EXECUTION

87 RG CODE OF POINTS 2009 – 2012 Gymnastics Australia  Individual music to movement has been moved to Artistry  Major changes are loss of apparatus and loss of balance.  Important to note that passive bounces if not performed correctly can be regarded as loss  Increase value in deductions in Shape neither fixed or held to 0.20 Height deduction has been removed. Concept is if gymnast can achieve the shape there is sufficient height EXECUTION
