    Shellie, have you considered hiring a choreographer who is more familiar with what the usasf will allow at specific levels while you take some time to study up and possibly attend some educational conferences?

    I have studied the rules and pretty familiar with them. I only question this one because I can't really tell if there's enough backspots. We can't hire a professional choreographer as we are a non profit organization and very cash poor. Many times I have paid for uniforms out of my own pocket. Much of what we have for the cheerleaders I have covered when fundraising fell short. My organization can't see approving the cost of that when truly we mainly are for sideline cheer. The competition in the fall is for our 14 individual organizations with a cheer program...kind of like a bowl game for football teams. It's just that we have to abide by level 1 rules and honestly most of judges have a "familiarity" with those rules.

    Not a rules expert by any means, but I didn't see anything in the video that looked illegal to me. There are 3 people under every stunt, in contact with the flyer, and one legged stunts at prep are braced by a person at prep with both feet in bases hands. It's an odd way to grip that, and I don't think it's a very effective way to do it, but unless there is something I'm not picking up on, I think it's legal. Please don't take my word as an answer though, I am just a parent.

    yeah, the grip thing is odd as well. I am no expert either and generally pretty sure of most of the rules, the things I am not sure of are skills my girls aren't even close to yet. There's just something about this that just leaves me feeling like there may be something that makes it go either way as far as legalities. I might leave that alone and just do things that I know are safe, but I wanted to try this because no one in our league has done anything like it and it is rather unique and would fit the very unique music I have this season and is a stunt that my girls can hit.

    This is legal, but in the teddy sit, please, please, please make sure that the bases aren't extended in their hands like an extended level stunt. Otherwise you will have to have the backspot hold the flyers to arms.

    I think you are saying it would be illegal because it's extended... Teddy bear sits can extend in L1. They are considered a prep level stunt, even if the bases' arms are extended. However, the backspot cannot have her body under the flyer - she needs to be out from under the stunt.

    That is what I was trying to say, thanks for clarifying it.

    Well now I have another question after a stunt clinic with an AllStar gym that I attended yesterday. I was thinking for a pyramid sequence I could have prep-outside stag--extension---prep-outside stag, then switch to extension-inside stage-Prep--extension-inside stag (now in this one the middle flyer would NOT be holding the foot, the inside base would just turn out)...the first pyramid I know is legal in level 1, the second one I thought was as well, BUT I was told that inside stag would be considered a one legged stunt and you can't do one legged stunt in extension in level 1. What I fail to understand is how is it a one legged stunt when the base is still holding the foot of the flyer, they are just simply turning out.

    I'm not sure I understand what the extension stag is. Can you post a picture?

    Also called a hitch..so inside base turns out, the flyers all still maintain the hand arm to arm connection. But the two outside stunt groups are in extension and middle stunt group in prep.
