Heading back to USAG for a season of L9...

Vault- pike tsuk- 9.7 SV

Bars- kip cast hand, clear hip hand, clear hip 1/2, sole circle, straddle back, kip squat on, kip cast hand, giant, giant, full- 9.8 SV (in my ideal-but-improbable routine, I'd do the clear hip hand, clear hip 1/2 into a bail hand and omit the straddle back- 10 SV)

Beam- full turn, switch leap switch leap straddle 1/4, BHS BHS, cartwheel full- 10 SV (dismounts are not my thing. at all. neither is beam, for that matter)

Floor- some combination of 1 1/2 punch front, whip 1/2 FLO, FHS FLO FP, RO BHS 1/1, or RO BHS 1/1 FP. dance is almost definitely split 1/1 tuck 1 1/2, double turn, switch leap wolf hop- 10 SV (my idea of front tumbling generally involves punching out of backwards passes :) )

This is the bar routine I want for when I compete again at Level 8

Mount (from board between the bars) Free Front Hip Circle, cast bent hip straddle up HS, 1/2 pirouette, glide, Reverse Kip to HB (catch mixed grip), Peach Salto, switch glide, kip, cast Free Straddle over LB to hang on HB (mixed grip), Straddle cut catch on HB, kip, cast straddle cut inward to Whipsalto dismount.


Level 7:

Vault - fronthandspring (everything starts at a 10.0, handspring is just the easiest)

Bars - kip, freehip, kip, squat on, long kip, cast handstand, giant, giant, flyaway

Beam - walkover handspring, switchleg, tuck jump tuck jump, full turn, cartwheel/roundoff backtuck dismount

Floor - fronthandspring front pike, roundoff handspring layout (maybe a half/full next year), full or 1 1/2 turn, switchleg to tuck jump, tuck jump tuck jump full

our levels don't compare to usag levels,... ours are weird. Like, the one I'm competing you can be anywhere between l5 & l7. Roughly. Maybe even level 4, but obviously then you wouldn't score too well. The next level would be equivalent to a L7-9. It's a bit annoying because the step from one level to the other is just really hard!! I hope to make that move next summer with some missing requirements here and there because it's just annoying not to compete skills simply because they're not worth it and it's better to go clean.

For now I'm planning with the following:
Vault: Half on half off, yama****a, yama****a half
Bars: something involving a) toe on half (not to handstand), toe hecht (maybe, that's one of the skills that I can do but there's no point in doing them at that level. They're B, so a tenth in bonus, but that's not really worth the deductions I'm probably gonna get. If I competed the higher level they'd also get me .5 for a flight element. Then probably cast - clear hip (hopefully handstand)- flyaway (hopefully straight).
Beam: something with switch leap, roundoff, backwards roll, front half (or if I get it front full) dismount and random other stuff
Floor: front and back tuck for a non spring floor, maybe side aerial (they'Re a requirement but mine are ugly and hurt so we'll see about that... just not my best skill, I'd guess). On a spring floor: Back layout and front half (again, only really worth it if I was competing the higher level, cos you need some form of twisting and a B dismount there).
Dance: Switch, cat leap 1,5; wolf full, full turn with leg up.

as you see, I haven't really made up my mind yet;)

Just wanted to warn you that toe shoots (toe hechts) on bars, back tucks on beam, and front layout 1/1 dismounts on beam are not allowed in L8 next year. No acro Cs are allowed on beam and floor, and only specific (read: extremely limited) Cs are allowed on bars. [/judge hat]
