    Anon Future scoring

    It seems lately there have been multiple threads with the theme of scoring discrepancies. Does anyone think in the future it could be done with multiple camera angles and some fancy algorithms? Could humans ever be replaced by computers for gymnastics scoring?

    Anon Xcel verses DP scoring

    I have a question about DP verses xcel scoring. Say a child has an xcel gold routine that is equivalent in skills to a DP level 6 routine. If the child gets a 9.5 on the xcel routine, what would be an equivalent score if the child was in the DP program? I guess I would like to know how much of a...

    Anon Level 6 Vault scoring and drills to improve?

    I've noticed level 6 vault scoring has been VERY low scoring all season across all teams in So Cal... no matter what vault is done, Yurchenko, Tsuak, or Front Handspring. I'd say 95% of gymnasts are getting 9.1 or lower with a few outliers getting 9.2-9.3s. (maybe a flukey 9.5). This is...

    WAG Judge Scoring Help

    Are there any judges or ex-judges that provide consulting to review a routine and provide feedback as to where they see deductions so our DD knows where she can work to improve her routine(s)?

    Anon Xcel scoring

    In xcel, do the judges only judge the required skills or do they also judge the dance elements on floor and the poses and such on beam?

    Anon In general, how accurate are mock meets in terms of scoring?

    Hi, does anyone have any wisdom to share about the accuracy of mock meet scoring? We are not new to competing but new to this style of mock meet - ours was judged by a USAG sanctioned judge but we were only given the score on each event, not any kind of insight as to what the deductions are. I'm...

    Anon Level 6/7 Beam Mount Scoring

    Wondering if a more "complicated" beam mount offers anything of value to a score at levels 6/7. The TOPS/HOPES/elite coach at her gym asked to do her beam choreography (yep, that was kid literally has no chance of being moved to that group, nor would we agree to it, so it was not...

    WAG Any changes to L10 scoring/skill value? What about NCAA?

    Now that Chalkbucket is getting fun again ;) I thought I'd pose this question.. I saw the thread about L9 getting a difficulty bonus, and am inferring (though perhaps incorrectly) that there are more changes to the code that will be in place next year. Somebody mentioned that a front tuck on...

    Anon Scoring for xcel gold verses xcel silver

    WAG Vault Scoring: Average or best of two?

    My daughter is in Level 4 this year and I had always thought vault was scored as the best of two but her coach now thinks that they have been scored as the average of the two vaults all year. I'm curious if this rule has changed or if it is discretionary/varies by state? Also, if it is the...

    Parents Scoring

    Question about scoring? At lower levels are gymnasts given higher scores for more advanced skills? Or is it like the Olympics where they say what they will do and if they do that really well they can get a high score. Just confused as I’ve seen some level3 without kip get higher scores than ones...

    WAG Can you help me explain scoring on this XG UB routine?

    I posted this in the Parents forum but I thought it might be better suited here and get more replies. I would appreciate an explanation of how this bars routine was scored, from anyone who knows. This is an Xcel Gold routine, and I definitely see a lot of little deductions -- bent hips, feet...

    Parents Can you help me explain scoring on this XG UB routine?

    Hi, I would appreciate an explanation of how this bars routine was scored, from anyone who knows. This is an Xcel Gold routine, and I definitely see a lot of little deductions -- bent hips, feet not together. But is there a big deduction somewhere? She scored a 8.2 on this routine, and...

    WAG NGA Scoring

    My gym has decided to switch over to the new organization, NGA. Aside from the fact that no one really knows exactly what it's about, I had a question about the scoring.
