## Scoring Jump Entrances

How do judges score on a jump if the jump is supposed to have transitions leading up to it? I just watched a youtube of a top skater who took long entrances into her jumps. The jumps were fine, but I did not see any transitions leading up to them. My question is (and I have no answer to it) how is this scored?

The jumps should get base value if done correctly?

There should be a deduction only in the GoEs?

How does the relevant PCS criteria handle it?

(Just my enquiring mind)

The only jump that is required to have transitions leading up to it is the solo (non-Axel) jump in the Short Program.

The penalty is:

No steps and/or movements preceding the jump, -3, -GOE. (That is, -3 for no steps, but if other aspects of the jump are excellent (in the plus range) the final GOE for the element could be -2 or -1, but not 0 or positive.)

Only 1 step/movement, -2 GOE.

Steps/movements not immediately preceding the take-off, -1 to -2 GOE.

It seems to me that in practice these rules are interpreted fairly generously as to what constitutes a "step or movement."

The penalty on any jump (SP or LP) for "long preparation" (telegraphing) is -1 GOE.

So a large telegraph entry into the combo is ok.
Are there any special rules for the long program?

No steps and/or movements preceding the jump, -3, -GOE. (That is, -3 for no steps, but if other aspects of the jump are excellent (in the plus range) the final GOE for the element could be -2 or -1, but not 0 or positive.)

Steps/movements not immediately preceding the take-off, -1 to -2 GOE.

I'm not sure what the differences are between a step, movement or even a transition I would think that a step is placing one's foot after a jump landing to go for another jump. A movement would be a small jump a la mzurka into another jump, most likely an axel, but could include a 3turn into a Flip. the trnsition must be a series of basic steps to the jump, I guess Moves-in-Field are transitions,

The penalty on any jump (SP or LP) for "long preparation" (telegraphing) is -1 GOE.
Let's check the protocols on Ladies SP in CoR and see if that is being enforced.

The GOE goes up if a skaters does any kind of element/movement before a jump. But if he/she doesn't do that, there is no deduction (with the exception of the solo jump in the SP).

For example
-a split jump into a 3Toe
-a walley before a jump
-a Ina Bauer, Charlotte, Spiral, Spread Eagle, etc. immediately preceding the jump
-or various steps and turns into a jump

Obviously doing a certain element before a certain kind of jump could be easier or more difficult. So I think it should be reflected in GOE (from easier +1 to more difficult +3)

I remember Kristi Yamaguchi doing an element right before her 3loop. That has made her loop very difficult and could lead to an error. If COP were in use and the 3loop were clean, with that entrance she should have received from +1 to +2GOE. How do you call that element, BTW??

I don't know how it is counted an one-foot axel into a 3sal or 3flip? That kind of axel it is counted as an Axel jump in combo, or as a transition???

A one-foot axel is not a listed jump so therefore it is a transition or beauty move and not counted in the jump value....

All elements should be preceded by transitions (though not necessarily steps or turns as transitions, the transition could be another movement). The transitions are marked in the Transitions PC.

In the Short Program, for the solo jump that is required to have preceding steps, if there is only one or no preceding steps, there is a GoE reduction of -1 to -3, with the GoE potentially required to be negative in the extreme case.

For ALL other jumps, telegraphing (riding a long entry edge) has a GoE reduction of -1, referred to as a "long preparation" in ISU 1445.

So ignoring the SP solo jump:

Crossovers or stroking directly into a jump is no GoE reduction.
Crossovers or stroking followed by a long preparation into a jump is a -1 reduction.
Transitions directly into a jump is no GoE reduction.
Transitions followed by a long preparation into the jump is a -1 GoE.

It seems that the 'long transition' mark is not deducted evenly across the board at competitions that I have been watching.

There are a couple of senior women who have exceedingly long backward outside edges into their double axel - I mean all the way across the ice before taking off - and get a plus in the GOE!! We are talking at least a 3 second edge --
As well as the double axel, these same skaters also have very long edges into their 3sal and other jumps, including doubles when popped..

In fact, at one competition, most of the senior women had very few linking and transition moves in their short program - just stroking and long edges into jumps -- and scored higher than the skaters who actually had choreography and linking moves.,

Can't figure it out for the life of me......

A one-foot axel (regular axel takeoff, landing on the same foot) is counted as an axel -- gets the same points as an axel, fills a jump slot.

An inside axel (different takeoff, from the other foot) is not a listed move so it doesn't get points and doesn't fill a slot.

Yes. Exactly right.

I'm a bit confused on the Inside Axel. If I take off on forward inside edge and land on the same foot on a back outside edge would that be counted for points?

Thank you for the above.

So it's the long preparation into jumps that get a demerit and there is no demerit for using cross overs/stroking or transitions if there is no preparation. I would think that the transitions into a jump would at least get something in the PCS score.

No.

Yes, the transitions into the jump should always be taken into consideration in the Transitions PC.

All listed jumps can be landed on either foot, and are still considered listed jumps (except the half-loop). By the rules, an Axel MUST take off on a forward outside edge to be considered a listed jump. Since a One-Foot Axel takes off on a FOE it is a listed jump. There is no listed jump that takes off on a forward inside edge in the SoV. So the Inside Axel is not a listed jump.

There is no logical justification for these definitions, IMO, but that is what is in the rules.

Did I get it? If not, please explain:

A one-foot axel (regular axel takeoff, landing on the same foot) is counted as an axel -- gets the same points as an axel, fills a jump slot.
