A well-balanced Free Skating program must contain:
Maximum of four (4) jump elements:
- one of which must be an Axel-type jump
- maximum of two (2) jump combinations or one (1) jump combination and one (1) jump sequence:
- A jump combination and a jump sequence consist of two (2) jumps
- In the jump sequence the second jump must be an Axel type jump with a direct step from the landing curve of the first jump in to the take-off curve of the Axel jump. One full revolution on the ice be- tween the jumps (free foot can touch the ice, but without weight transfer) keeps the element in the frame of the definition of a jump sequence. Jumps executed in a jump sequence receive their full value
Maximum of two (2) spins of a different nature (minimum of four (4) revolutions each)
One (1) Step Sequence fully utilizing the ice surface.
The Program Components are only judged in:
- Skating Skills
The Factor of the Program Components is 1.67.
