    Hi! We're using level 3 rules for the first time in Sweden, and I'm confused by one thing for standing tumbling. Can someone please give me and example of this (or explain it): "Airborne skills must involve hand support with at least one hand when passing through the inverted position".

    That rule is in the standing tumbling section. It means that you cannot do standing tucks or aerials (they're only allowed in running tumbling). Here is a clarification of what "airborne skills" are, from level 2 (so in level 2, you must use two hands for handsprings, in level 3 you must use at least one in standing handsprings):

    Airborne skills must involve hand support with both hands when passing through the inverted position.
    Example: Front and back handsprings are examples of airborne_tumbling skills.

    Thank you!! I was confused by USASF's definition of "airborne".

    No problem - things can get confusing, especially if you're only looking at one particular level of rules. My recommendation is to consult the glossary and, if that doesn't help, try looking at lower level rules - sometimes things are clarified at a lower level and then not clarified in later levels.
