For gold you need another acro.

The requirements are 2 acro (one must pass through vertical), a minimum of a 1/1 turn on one foot, a dance combo with a minimum of two skills (this would be a jump-jump or leap-jump), and a mount and dismount.

In gold, the jumps actually do not need to be connected. That starts in platinum.

They might have been using an old version of the requirements. I have 3 different "updated" versions ... and my oldest "update" still has a connection required in Gold (but it didn't have to include the "split" leap or jump - that could be separate).

There's no requirement for a dance series In Gold. Hasn’t been for at least 2 years, but probably 4.

Yep. I know. I was explaining how someone could have been confused (not all coaches pay attention to the changes year to year). It was a change for the 2018-19 season, so if they were looking at the requirements for 2017-18 or before, they would think it had to be a series.

I was actually at our District Meet yesterday and several times I heard a coach (3 different coaches from 3 different teams) "remind" an XG gymnast that she needed to connect her jumps on beam.
