In the previous season we competed a prep level ruby slipper full around to an extended heel stretch because my team wasn't quite ready to do real full ups and we just wanted to keep it clean. This season we want to start working them towards being able to do real full ups, but they're still not quite ready for all of the training wheels to come off yet so we were thinking about cross-leg full ups. Would a cross leg full and a half up to cupie score better than/similarly to the ruby slipper hands full around to body position that we did last season? Would a cross leg 1.5 up and a "real" 1.5 up score differently? Would it be worth it to try and hide the crossed legs with positioning of the stunt, or does it not matter if they can tell if it's real or crossed for scoring purposes? Finally, if we wanted to do a cross leg 1.5 up and then kick a stretch, would it score as a "1.5 up to body position" to get into the super elite category at UCA? How quickly would we have to switch over in order for it to count as an immediate body position? As an example, if we dipped on 1-2, spun/walked 3-4-5-6, and then kicked the stretch on 7-8 - would it count as immediate? Or would the stretch have to hit on 5 to be immediate? Edit: Sorry for the 20 questions! I just really don't want to do a ruby slipped 1.5 up to body position or something like that again. I think my kids are ready for the next, more difficult, skill - but I don't want to waste practice time working on harder skills if its going to hurt our score instead of help it. Even if it was a lateral move it would be worth it in my mind to be a step closer to real full ups, but not if it's a step down in score for a step up in difficulty.
