    (Hi all, I’m new here. Hopefully this will post correctly.) I’m including a link to the video of my daughter’s coach giving her a spot on her vault - The judge somehow didn’t notice the coach had spotted her, so didn’t give a deduction (score given was 8.6). Judge asked coach after if she...

    WAG Over time limit deductions

    Does anyone know off hand what the deduction is for an over time limit floor routine in Xcel Gold? I just discovered dd's routine is too long and I'm curious how much that hurts her score. Seems like a silly thing to lose tenths over.

    MAG Spotting Deduction

    Anyone know how much is taken off if a coach spots a kid on a skill? Compulsory level if that makes a difference (and not one of the skills where doing it without a spot is a bonus)?

    My daughter's coach told her after state that she received a .1 deduction on her floor routine for "cheerleading". I've never heard of this. I have no idea what the judge would be referring to.
