It is not a reason to repeat the vault. Winnie Witten SCNAWGJ

3 Apparatus Specifications The use of the Round-off “safety zone “ mat is REQUIRED whenever Round-off entry vaults are performed at JO competitions Failure to use the safety zone mat when performing a round-off entry vault would result in a “0” (VOID) score for the vault Winnie Witten SCNAWGJ

5 Touch Warm-ups Level 8, 9 & 10 gymnasts are guaranteed three warm-up vaults. Level 6 & 7 gymnasts are guaranteed two warm-up vaults. Each gymnast is allowed one run-back from the board Each gymnast is allowed to stand on the vault table and jump or salto off one time Winnie Witten SCNAWGJ

6 Vault Competition The gymnast is allowed 3 attempts to successfully complete one or both vaults If the gymnast makes contact with the springboard or vaulting table but doesn’t go over, it is considered a vault and is scored as a void vault Winnie Witten SCNAWGJ

7 Vault Competiton The hand placement mat and the safety zone mat are not considered part of the vault apparatus If the gymnast falls during her running approach to the vault, but does not contact the board, it is considered a balk and is counted as one of the 3 attempts Winnie Witten SCNAWGJ
