Gymnastics Australia TRP Technical Regulations Part B January 2018 Version 2 7/30 ARTICLE 4. AUSTRALIAN LEVELS PROGRAM

Gymnastics Australia TRP Technical Regulations Part B January 2018 Version 2 8/30 The Trampoline Gymnastics Australian Levels Program is a National Program and includes all three apparatus of 10 levels. This system is split into the Levels Program and the “Guide to Passing Levels”. All athletes participating in the Trampoline Levels Program must be registered members of their State/Territory Gymnastic Association. This includes level 1 and level 2 gymnasts. Whilst the program provides an overall development program for use by both coaches and performers, it is not intended to be the only source of reference for Trampoline Gymnastics. Coaches should ensure that they are competent in the teaching of all Trampoline skills that they present to their athlete.

The ALP levels indicate a measure of competency at each level by the athlete. Club coaches and judges should ensure that their athletes demonstrate these levels of competency for the specified competition. The ALP details the routines/passes required for each level and the process of assessment. This program is available from Gymnastics Australia. 4.1 How to Obtain Your Trampoline Gymnastics Level Badge As per “How to obtain your levels badge” section in the “Trampoline Gymnastics Australian Levels Program”.

If there are 30 or more residential competitors at the completion of the event preliminary competition, then the best 10 competitors will participate in the finals. The finals will also include the top 6 or 10 residential competitors (if 30 or more residential competitors competing). International Stream Events The best 8 competitors from the preliminaries will participate in the finals. 5.6.5 Club Team Competition Rules The club team scores will be calculated from the preliminary competition results only. Only athletes who have successfully achieved the minimum DD requirement for the level they are competing in can receive points for their club. For team points calculations only, if an athlete has not met the minimum DD requirements, then all athletes placed below the athlete at fault move up one placing, and the appropriate team points are allocated to their clubs. The first placing, that has met minimum DD requirements, of each event after the preliminary competition will receive 10 points.

2nd place to 10th place will receive 9 points to 1 point respective of their preliminary placing. Only the club’s highest placed athlete’s score will count for the club score in each event. A club’s best performing athlete’s points for each event is added together to obtain the club score with the following allowances:  30 best of the 42 possible events count towards the Overall Champion Title.  10 best of the 14 possible events count towards each of the Discipline Champion Titles.

Gymnastics Australia TRP Technical Regulations Part B January 2018 Version 2 22/30  5 best of the 6 possible events count towards each of the Levels Champion Club Titles.  The club with the highest score is the winner. In the case of a tie, a tie-breaker rule will be applied.  The club with results from the most number of different disciplines for the particular award being contested is the winner.  If clubs are still tied at this point, then the club with the most number of counting points for the particular award being contested is the winner. A maximum score can be achieved of:  300 points for the Overall Champion Club Title  100 points for each of the Discipline Champion Club Titles  50 points for each of Levels 4, 5, 6 and 7 Champion Clubs  150 points for the Elite Champion Club (i.e.: 3x50 pts max) 5.6.6 Generic Discipline Rules – Athlete Level A minimum of Level 3 must be achieved by close of entries and have been recorded on the National database at Gymnastics Australia for eligibility to compete. Athletes in individual events must compete in the level passed and recognised by Gymnastics Australia, or may voluntarily upgrade one (1) level to compete. Once an athlete voluntarily upgrades in an individual event to compete, then all subsequent national competitions must be contested in that level, unless an official application for downgrading due to special circumstance is submitted and accepted by the State/Territory and National Associations. All levels must be processed with Gymnastics Australia by entries close. All levels within each discipline shall have minimum and maximum difficulty requirements for the qualifying (prelims) rounds. Maximum DD requirements will apply for finals. Double saults are not allowed in Level 4 and 4A, and if performed will receive zero (0) difficulty for the skill. Athlete Level Upgrades The National Technical Commission will monitor Qualifying Events, State/Territory Championships and Australian Championships to determine an athlete’s minimum level to compete at the National Clubs Carnival. If an athlete has met the requirements for levels above that recorded or entered for the event, then the athlete will not be allowed to compete at the recorded or entered level.

E.g.: If a club has only processed or entered Level 4 for an athlete, and the athlete has demonstrated Trampoline 2nd voluntary routine score and DD, or DMT prelim score and DD, or Tumbling prelim score and DD of Level 5 or above during the calendar year of the National Clubs Carnival, then the athlete will not be allowed to compete Level 4. 5.6.7 Minimum & Maximum Degree of Difficulty Requirements For completed routines or passes that do not reach the minimum difficulty requirement the following rule shall be applied by the Chief Referee. The imposed penalty for not meeting the minimum difficulty for the routine or pass shall be equivalent to the shortfall between the difficulty awarded and the minimum required and deducted from each execution judges’ execution score of the routine/pass. Eg.: Athlete A performs a 2.1 voluntary in an event with a minimum requirement of 2.3, then the penalty of 0.2 shall be deducted from each execution judges’ score.

Gymnastics Australia TRP Technical Regulations Part B January 2018 Version 2 23/30 For completed routines or passes that exceed the maximum difficulty requirement the following rule shall be applied by the Routine Judge. The imposed penalty for exceeding the maximum difficulty requirement for a routine or pass shall be the reducing of the difficulty to meet the maximum allowed. Eg. Athlete B performs a 2.5 voluntary in an event with a maximum requirement of 2.3, then the 0.2 excess shall be deducted from the difficulty performed, awarding 2.3 difficulty for the performance by the routine judges.
