The spins must have a required minimum number of revolutions: six (6) for the flying spin and the spin with only one position and ten (10) for the spin combination, the lack of which must be reflected by Judges in their marking, however a spin with less than three rotations is considered as a skating movement and not a spin. These minimum number of required revolutions must be counted from the entry of the spin until its exit. In the spin combination the change of foot is optional and the number of different positions is free. A spin with no change of position, in which another position is executed with more than 2 revolutions, does not fulfil the requirements of a spin with “no change of positions” and will be identified as a “Spin Combination”. However, the concluding upright position at the end of the spin (final wind-up) is not considered to be another position if does not exceed 3 revolutions and the revolutions executed in it are not to be counted in the required number of revolutions. A second change of foot in a spin with change of foot does not count as a feature for a higher level.
During a change of positions a difficult variation of position can be executed.
