The USASF updated the deduction sheet and rubric for Worlds 2012. Keeping in mind that Worlds is based on a maximum score of 300 points, this makes Stunt Bobbles, Stunt Falls, Major Stunt Falls, and Stunt or Pyramid Collapses on par with the Varsity Scoring System.
Athlete Bobbles and Athlete Falls are essentially twice the penalty Varsity assesses and Rules Violations are essential 1.67 times what Varsity penalizes. The Out of Bounds penalty is 5.0 points and Time Limit violations start at 5.0 points with no grace period.
Stunt Bobbles/Athlete Bobbles
Bobbles during stunting skills will result in a 1.5 deduction for each occurrence. Bobbles during individual skills will result in a 1.5 deduction for each occurrence. Examples:
- Stunts and Pyramids that almost drop/fall, but are saved
- Incomplete twisting cradles
- Knee or hand touching ground during cradle or dismount
- Severe balance checks
- Hands down on tumbling
- Knees touch ground in back tuck
- Incomplete twisting skills in tumbling will be taken into consideration on the panel judges score sheets for the 2012 Worlds (not the deduction sheet).
Stunt Falls/Athlete Falls
Falls during individual skills will result in a 3.0 deduction for each occurrence. Falls during stunting skills will result in a 3.0 deduction for each occurrence. Examples:
- Drops from individual stunt to a cradle
- Drops from individual stunt to a pop down dismount
- Drops to the floor during individual skills (tumbling, jumps, etc.)
Stunt Falls (Major)
Falls during stunting skills will result in a 4.5 deduction for each occurrence. Examples:
- fall from individual stunt to the ground (Top person lands on ground or multiple bases land on ground)
Stunt or Pyramid Collapse
Collapses during stunt or pyramid skills will result in a 6.0 deduction for each occurrence. Example:
- If a stunt drops to the ground (4.5) and then rebuilds in the same stunt sequence and drops again (4.5), the maximum deduction issued will be a 6.0.
- If only an individual stunt performs an error during the pyramid sequence then only a 3.0 or 4.5 deduction will be assessed.
Safety Violation / Skills Performed Out Of Level
- Safety Violations will result in a 10.0 deduction for each occurrence.
Time Limit Violations
- 0‐5 seconds over time (2:30) will result in a 5.0 deduction
- 6‐10 seconds over time will result in a 10.0 deduction
All skills must originate and be completed within the competition boundary. No lineups, skills, or transitions are allowed outside of the competition boundary. A participant stepping outside the competition boundary will result in a 5.0 deduction for each occurrence. The competition boundary is defined as the actual spring floor, the carpet bonded foam panels that connect to the spring floor.
