Each of the MSExcel files contains:

  1. Instructions
  2. Score sheet for competitions utilizing a 1-judge panel.
  3. Score sheet for competitions utilizing a 2-judge panel.

NOTES:

For Levels 1-6

  • In the case where the squad performs either two or three tumbling passes, the judge shall evaluate EACH pass on the basis of 10.0.
  • The score for each pass will be entered in the spreadsheet and a formula will calculate the average.
  • Bonus or neutral deductions will be entered in a separate column and added to (or deducted from) the average to determine the Final Score.

For Levels 7-8

  • It should also be noted that for Levels 7-8, the squads perform either 2 Vaults, and 1 Mini-tramp pass OR 1 Vault, and 2 Mini-tramp passes.
  • The spreadsheet is set-up for the judge to enter three scores. Each of the three VT/MT passes performed is evaluated on the basis of 10.0.
  • The Combined Group/Mini-tramp base score will be the average of these three entries.
  • Bonus or neutral deductions will be entered in a separate column and added to (or deducted from) the average to determine the Final Score.

These score sheets MUST be utilized when submitting TeamGym competition results for posting on the USAG web site and for inclusion in the 2008-09 Season Rankings.
