    Section I of level one dismounts says that they are not allowed but there's no definition. Can someone please explain to me what this is defined as?

    around 1:30 basically, it's when bases are holding the flyer and start leaning towards the ground, letting them go at the end.

    also, the dismount from the last pyramid.

    That may have made my night.

    So cute and really funny - the transitions, the dance, the mascot :)
    And this tension rolls out of the pyramid - wow.

    What if the back held the ankles all the way to the ground and then rolled?

    A flyer must be assisted to the ground in pop off dismounts (unless it's at waist level). A tension roll or tension drop involves no assistance to the ground.

    Omg that video just made my night. Between the spirit finger dance moves and beyond dangerous people stacking...I died...
    And could you imagine a tiny 1 team falling to the ground like that?

    That's cute, that pyramid is.

    And terrifying.

    (Sorry I know this is an old thread but I'm looking for L1 inspiration :) )

    I love when old threads get brought up. Then I go shimmy the posts and people are always like "what the crap?"
    You're welcome @NJ Coach ;)

    (But I should be thanking you for posting that video of the Flintstones cheer routine)
