Young 2008 - 2009
2 minutes 30 seconds
A well-balanced Free Skating program must contain 8 elements in total:
Maximum of five (5) jump elements:
- Maximum of one (1) Axel type jump and one (1) double jump are allowed
- Any jump with the same name may be executed only twice
- Maximum of three (3) jump combinations or two (2) jump combinations 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
Minimum one (1) and maximum of two (2) spins of a different nature.
One (1) Step Sequence covering at least 2/3 of the ice surface.
The Program Components are only judged in:
- Skating Skills
The Factor of the Program Components is 2.0 for Boys; 1.7 for Girls.
- In all elements, which are subject to Levels, only features up to Level 2 will be counted. All additional features will not count for Level requirements and will be ignored by the TP.
- The level of spins and step sequence cannot be higher than Base
- There will be no special factor of 1.1 for jump elements performed in the second half of the program.
- Evaluation is in accordance with ISU Communication No.2489 (or any update).
