ATTENTION WOMEN’S PROGRAM MEMBERS:
CLARIFICATION REGARDING THE USE OF ALTERNATIVE SPRINGBOARD APPARATUS, as described in the 2010-11 Women’s Rules and Policies on page 82, F. 1. 2nd bullet:
In May 2010, the National Jr. Olympic Committee voted to allow the use of the Air-o-Board (and other similar vault/mounting apparatus) to be used for LEVELS 1-3 AND THE PREP OPTIONAL PROGRAM.
These types of alternative “springboards” ARE NOT ALLOWED at Level 4 – 10 competitions. If a Level 4-10 athlete uses a piece of apparatus that is not allowed for her level, the routine/vault is VOID.
