    Exactly! It could be interpreted that any two skills could be used, but one needed to be a handspring. That would mean you could do handspring, whip, handspring, whip, whip, double. There's a minimum of two backward traveling tumbling skills. (Check) One of these two skills must be a handspring. (Check, since a handspring was used, and a whip was used. So one of the two skills was a handspring.)

    Any thoughts on the one up this week. I want to say it's legal because a T-jump isn't considered a jump and you may therefore do it before a back hand in level 2 (and the reverse is also true, backhand t-jump). But my question is that if the t-jump isn't considered a jump, does it then successfully break up the two back handsprings? As series backhands are illegal in level 2 standing tumbling. I mean the definition of series is 2 or more consecutively but? Maybe that's a silly thought but these are always so tricky haha!

    I'd say it's legal. Although a T jump isn't considered to be a jump for scoring purposes, any non-tumbling movement that breaks up a standing pass would make it not a series. That's how I've always thought of it.

    I say legal. T jump BHS is legal because T jump is not considered a jump skill. Series standing BHS is illegal, but series is defined as 2 BHS performed consecutively. The 2 BHS are not consecutive so they are not a series.

    A simple pause breaks them. I thought it was any non-tumbling motion or skill breaks the series.

    Yeah I agree! Someone mentioned a T-jump is considered something along the lines of a rebound. But yeah it was a silly thought but I always like getting them all out to discuss :)

    Some of them I have no earthly clue what the answers is. Which makes me nervous haha.

    I struggle with Level 5 tumbling legalities. We actually don't have any level 5 teams where I'm from so I've never judged or coached one. I haven't bothered to really learn the ins and outs of it yet because of that

    This week's quiz, pretty cut and dry? Illegal since an inversion from above prep level needs 3 catchers?

    I thought so too! But I believe it's legal because she becomes inverted at prep level which may be done with 2 at level 5. Thoughts!?

    We are the same but with level 6! I used to cheer level 6 but now it's a thing of the past where I am from. Level 5 is still kicking (not as strong as it used to mind you)! In fact I'm on a team right now heading to worlds this year! But I coach level 4 so I know that level inside out.. every other level not quite as much hahaha!

    "Downward inversions are allowed from above prep level and must be assisted by at least three catchers, at least two of which are positioned to protect the head and shoulder area. Contact must be initiated at the shoulder level (or above) of the bases."
    I guess that depends on how you interpret the wording. Is it when she becomes inverted? Or where she starts to fall towards the inversion? She doesn't really stop at any point so I'd say the inversion "starts" above prep level.

    I just rewatched it. I guess it could be considered a stop and back walkover off of base two, so I can see how it'd be called legal. She doesn't really go for the inversion before that.
