    I’m not sure what you think it means, but given the things on which UCA has historically placed emphasis:

    “Minimum movement of bases”: ruby-slipper full up vs traditional full up

    “Number and type of connection between base and top”: released inversions versus the one where the back holds on to the ankles

    “Beginning and ending position of the top”: full up versus low to high.

    “Completion of skill”: don’t hit, don’t count

    That would be my interpretation

    Ok. That makes sense. Thank you.

    I interpreted “movement of bases” to be a technique thing rather than a skills thing. Meaning, I thought they were saying they’d reward teams for executing basic cheer 101 technique (stay put when you stunt). Which I assumed to be a given, not something that deserved emphasis as being a significant way to earn points.

    Basically, I thought they were dumbing things down for us because of last year.

    But your way makes more sense.

    Anyway we’ve got camp soon so hopefully I can get all these questions answered then.
