    there is really no way to do a double up without the bases moving. You can do a full up without the bases moving, but that is the traditional way. The crossed leg grip which is really easy for a full up the bases and spot have to move a 1/4. Now if you don't mind the bases moving, that will work. PM me

    So I've been trying to use the ruby slipper grip and I think something is going wrong because my side base and backspot (they start as the backspot and main base) keep getting their arms caught together... Can anyone help?

    I've been working with my team on full ups using the traditional grip, but they are having trouble with the re-grip at the top. Any tricks to help them re-grab the feet at the top? There are a lot of hands getting tangle at the top.

    It's important for everyone to remember in Ruby slipper one hand is where it should be already, often hands get tangled when the primary hand that isn't supposed to move moves or over adjusts. Someone in the group is simply trying to "do someone else's job" and is not utilizing the primary grip the hold provides. Also, it's important that everyone stays close together, moves quickly, and the flyer Stands straight up straight. If there is any kind of "hop out" or attempt at twisting a bases natural instinct moves to a catch rather than stick. I would stress, 1. Do your job only 2. Move quickly 3. Overcompensate the stunt using legs and with a shrug 4. Be aware of your flyer and the secondary limb you need to grasp 5. Don't move your primary hand but use the secondary to "steal" the other limb (foot, ankle) and drive it up, not around. 6. Flyer pop chin at an upward motion creating a clean long body line and a "stand up" without balance checking.

    For traditional full ups: main keep your right hand (twisting arm) in an L-shape/right angle throughout the drive up phase to ensure that the twist happens at the very top. Don't forget about the left arm -- make sure you use it drive the stunt up and then focus on whipping your right hand quickly when you get to the top to join it back to your left as soon as you can. Really focus on the feet and grabbing the heel quickly. Have the flyer's ball of foot in the palm of your hand - don't hold too far up under the arch or you'll lose the leverage for the spin.

    Make sure secondary base and back are taking the toss up all the way to the top and keeping their hands up. Flyer should let main control the spin; she shouldn't spin herself. If they are getting their arms caught, that implies they are twisting before the top - so ensure the flyer isn't spinning herself early, main is waiting for the top (think of it like a show with a spin on top, not up and twist all in one motion) and side base and back are completing the toss.

    Provided they spin at the top, arms should be out of the fray for the catch and won't get twisted :)
