    Skate Canada '06/'07 Technical Welbalanced program

    The following are the Well Balanced Program Criteria for Adult competitions for 2006-2007. This information has been created based on a survey of similar Adult event criteria and test requirements for each level. Skaters and coaches are reminded that these are maximum numbers and that there is no penalty for not completing the maximum number allowed. Elements beyond the maximum will not be considered for points in CPC, or subject to a deduction under 6.0. A formal review of test criteria will take place in order to better manage these criteria in relation to current rules, competitive program structure and figure skating terms.

    Guidelines for application of Well Balanced Program Criteria

    DEFINITION OF TERMS:


    Jump Element: A solo jump, jump combination or jump sequence.

    Jump Combination: A jump combination may consist of the same or another single, double, triple or quadruple jump. In a jump combination the landing foot of the first jump is the take off foot of the second. A three turn on one foot between the jumps without touching the ice with the free foot keeps the element in the frame of this definition allowing still to call it a combination (with an error), but if together with this turn the skater's free foot touches the ice, the element becomes a jump sequence.

    Jump Sequence: A jump sequence may consist of any number of jumps of any number of revolutions linked by non-listed jumps immediately following each other, while maintaining the jump rhythm (knee). There can be not more than two (2) three turns/Mohawks during the sequence; there can be no cross-overs or stroking during the sequence. A jump sequence, consisting of only one listed jump together with other non-listed jumps is not considered a jump-sequence but will count as a solo jump.

    Spin Combination: A spin combination must contain at least one change of position with at least two rotations before and after the change. A change of foot is optional

    Flying Spin: A flying spin is a spin that begins with a flying entry. A flying spin may also be a combination spin.

    Spin in One Position: A spin in one position may not contain a change of position. A change of foot is optional. A change of foot does not make the spin a combination
    Instructions for understanding the Well Balanced Free Program Requirements:
    Jump Elements: Jump elements include all jumps done alone, in combination and in sequence
    o When counting Jump elements, a combination jump (2 jumps) counts as one jump element and a jump sequence (2 or more jumps) counts as one jump element
    § Example: Axel, 2 Toe-Loop, 2Salchow + 2ToeLoop combination is 3 jump elements even though there are 4 jumps
    § Example: Lutz-mazurka-Flip sequence, Loop/Loop combination, Axel is 3 jump elements evenn though it is 5 jumps.
    o In every case there is a maximum number of jump elements that must be included – jumps in excess of this maximum will receive no points (0.00 value) in CPC or will be subject to a 0.1 deduction in 6.0.
    o There can be no more than two jump combinations or sequences. Adult Masters can have no more than three jump combinations or sequences. Combinations or sequences in excess of these two will receive no points (0.00 value) in CPC or will be subject to a 0.1 deduction in 6.0.
    o Only 2 jumps may be repeated in a program. Adult Masters can not repeat more than 3 jumps. No jump may be included more than twice. If a jump is repeated (i.e., included twice in a program) one of the jumps must be in combination or sequence. (note: Jumps of the same name but different rotations are considered as a different jumps, i.e. Double Loop and Single Loop are considered as different jumps) If a repeated jump is not performed in combination or sequence, the repeated jump should be treated as a jump sequence with only one jump. It will count in the total number of combinations and sequences allowed. There is no other penalty.
    Spin Elements: Spin elements include any spin-like movement that has at least two rotations in total. Spin elements are categorized as spins of one position, combination spins and flying spins. In each case there are a maximum number of spins that may receive credit in any program. In addition, there is some content that is mandatory. Spins in excess of the maximum will receive no points (0.00 value) in CPC or will be subject to a 0.1 deduction in 6.0.
    If a spin does not meet one of the requirements for a program, and the maximum number of spins has been executed, then in CPC the spin not meeting requirements will be worth 0.00 points. In 6.0 the spin will be subject to a 0.1 deduction.
    o Example: Adult Bronze, two spins are executed, two sit spins. These are not spins of a different nature. In CPC, the last executed spin will receive no points. In 6.0 there will be a 0.1 deduction from the technical score.
    Step Sequences: Any step sequences beyond the maximum will receive no points (0.00 value) in CPC or will be subject to a 0.1 deduction in 6.0.

    Where did you find all of that? Do you know how to find the well-balanced criteria for a StarSkate level?
