AACCA has updated the 2011-12 College Cheerleading Safety Rules with a slight modification regarding flip dismounts in Rule D-5-b.
The previous rule wording allowed single based front flip dismounts from shoulders to land in a cradle or on the performing surface with assistance from the base. However, the double base dismount only allowed landing in a cradle. The new wording now allows double based front flips from shoulder level to also land on the performing surface with assistance from at least one base. This rule modification will allow all-girl or small coed teams to more easily perform similar skills as full coed teams.
In addition, the previous wording stated that the landing on the performing surface was “on the feet”. This has been revised to state “on at least one foot”.
