    Hi all,

    We were considering using shoulder stands to brace our extended libs at level 2 on one side only to increase the difficulty but then would need our shoulder stands to directly transition into libs. I was thinking of doing this by getting the flyer to shoulder stand on the backspot, then step into the waiting hands of the bases into a lib. However would this break the 'stunt passing over another stunt' rule?


    Also are braced extended lib tic-tocs legal at level 2?

    Thanks!

    Going from stand to lib won't the stunt passing over rule. She's not passing over her.

    tic tocks in level 2 must stay connected to someone on the ground. They can't do a true release. The backspot/base must be holding somewhere on the flyer. So if you're asking if they can do high to high while braced by an outside prep, then no, they can't do a full release.
