Novice B

Age: 10 - 15 years (born between 01/07/2006 - 30/06/2012)

Free Skating

3 minutes

A well-balanced Free Skating program must contain 8 elements in total:

1T 1S 1Lo 1F 1Lz 1A 2T 2S 2Lo 2F 2Lz 2A

Maximum of five (5) jump elements:

  1. one of which must be an Axel-type jump
  2. 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
  3. Double axel (2A) and triple jumps are not allowed
  4. All double jumps are allowed
  5. Any jump with the same name (including Axel type jumps) cannot be included more than two (2) times in total.

  • one (1) spin combination with a change of foot (minimum of eight (8) revolutions) or without a change of foot (minimum of six (6) revolutions)
  • one (1) spin in one position with a change of foot (minimum of eight (8) revolutions) or without a change of foot (minimum of six (6) revolutions)
  • in both spins flying entries are allowed

One (1) Step Sequence fully utilizing the ice surface.
