I Invented A Stunt And I Don’t Know If It’s Legal.

    So I didn’t “invent” it but I arrived at it on my own while trying to find a smoother way to check off the “released transition to extended involving spinning/inversions with 1 bracer” portion of the score sheet.

    It’s a variation of the stunt where the flyer and bracer are facing each other, holding hands. The flyer pops and falls back to a flatback tuck, then pops up to extended again.

    I guess my question is if you could add a half-spin to that. In my version the flyer would start in an extended flatback tuck position (popped up from a cradle) with her head pointed toward the bracer who would be behind her. She’d reach back to connect to her bracer, then pop up with a lateral half-spin instead of just straight up.

    I think??? it’s legal but have not seen another team do it which is always a red flag.


    Thanks.

    Turns out Live Oak did something similar in 2017 (2:58).



    That’s enough of a go ahead for me.

    Do you think you could pull that off with a shared bracer between two flyers or would that be phenomenally hard and not worth it?
