Includes the following:

- Multiple bases and/or spotters drop to the performance surface
- Top person lands on base and/or spotter who drops to the performance surface
MAXIMUM – 1.75
When multiple deductions should be assessed during a stunt or toss (by a single group), or during a pyramid sequence, then the sum of those deductions will not be greater than 1.75. During pyramids where a fall continues to effect other portions of the pyramid, the deduction will not exceed 1.75. Two separated pyramids will result in separate deductions. The MAX deduction for a pyramid will not exceed 3.5.
BOUNDARY VIOLATIONS- .25
The performance surface is defined as the 42’ x 54’ competition floor. The competition boundary is defined as the performance surface and any immediate adjacent safety border. A .25 deduction will be assessed per occurrence for an athlete that makes contact with both feet outside the competition boundary. Stepping on, or just past the white tape is not a boundary violation.
TIME LIMIT VIOLATIONS – .25
Teams that exceed 2:30 will be subject to the following deduction:
• 1 or more seconds over time will result in a .25 deduction
The routine time limit is 2:30. Routines that exceed this time limit run a risk of being assessed a deduction. Judges will use a stop watch or similar device to measure the official time. Acknowledging the potential for variance caused by human reaction speed and sound system time variations, judges will not issue a deduction until their stopwatch/clock shows a time that exceeds 2:32.
- 0.50 – Tumbling skills performed out of level and General Safety Guidelines will be issued a 0.50 deduction.
- 1.0 – Building skills performed out of level will be issued a 1.0 deduction.
IMAGE POLICY – .25
Inappropriate choreography, uniform and/or music, as well as violations that break the image policy will be issued a .25 deduction.
UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT DEDUCTION – 1.0
When a coach is in discussion with an official, other coaches, athletes and parents/spectators they must maintain proper professional conduct. Failing to do so may result in a 2.0 deduction, removal of coach, or disqualification.
Includes the following:
- Inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between athletes during the event
- Abuse of equipment or any items associated with the event
- Using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive, or insulting
- Using language or gestures that offend race, religion, color, descent or national or ethic origin
- Failing to perform a routine
- Excessive appealing at Score Check
- Showing dissent towards scoring official decision by word or action
- Threat of assault to an event representative
- Public criticism of an event related incident or event official
MINIMUM ATHLETE REQUIREMENT
If a team competes with fewer than the minimum number of athletes for their specific division, a deduction will not be assessed if that team is registered and rostered with the minimum amount of athletes required for that division. Teams that do not meet this requirement will be disqualified.
From a judging perspective, these teams will be scored as if they meet the minimum athletes requirement (in terms of majority and most) and will not be eligible for bids to any end of season events.
Judges may issue a warning instead of a deduction if it is not clear that the rule violation had occurred or if it was a performance error vs, an obvious rule violation. This is up to the safety judges discretion and may not be argued.
Performers can only participate in 3 total specialty divisions due to scheduling and costuming issues.
