9

(20)

All core and advanced skills performed at an appropriate, controlled height, with an arm set, line out. Routine starts with arm set, ends with out bounce. No mistakes in routine. All core and advanced skills performed with continuity and flow. Routines are performed with flow, and momentum is continual. All core and advanced skills performed with control in isolation and a routine. Performed in the centre of the trampoline, height and body position are maintained throughout.
8

(18-19)

All core and advanced skills performed at an appropriate height, most with arm sets and line outs (in isolation). Routine starts with arm set, ends with out bounce. No mistakes in routine. All core and advanced skills performed with continuity and flow. Routines flow from one skill to the next. Somersaults in routines may look less fluid than other skills. All core and advanced skills performed with control, constant height and in the centre of the trampoline in isolation and during a routine with the exception of somersault. Which may be lower and have some travel.
7

(16-17)

All core skills performed with good height in isolation and routines. Most advanced skills performed in isolation and some in routines. All core skills performed with flow during routine. Some advanced skills performed in routines with little hesitation. All core skills performed with control, constant height and in centre of trampoline in isolation and routine. Most advanced skills performed in isolation / and routines with control.
6

(14-15)

All core skills performed in isolation with good height and form in isolation, less form/shape in routine.

Advanced skills—Back to front and front to back in isolation

All core skills performed in a routine with flow and very little hesitation. Advanced skills may be attempted in routine but limited success, flow and may require extra bounce before or after skill. All core skills consistent height, control, centre of trampoline in isolation. In routine maybe some travel.

Advanced skills – lack of height, body tension, lots of travel in isolation and or routine.

5

(11-13)

All core skills performed in isolation with good height and form in isolation, less form/shape in routine. Advanced skills—attempted in isolation with very little success All core skills are performed with consistency in isolation and most with consistency in routines.

No consistency in advanced skills.

All core skills consistent height, control, centre of trampoline in isolation. In routine maybe some travel.

Advanced skills—very little height or from a progression, may not return to feet.

4

(8-10)

All core skills performed in isolation with some good form. Front / back landings from progression, and some form.

Routines may lack body tension.

Core skills are performed with consistency in isolation. In routines some consistency is achieved. All core skills performed with consistent height, control and in centre of travel in isolation.

Height may vary, and some travel experienced in a routine.

3

(6-7)

Some core skills performed in isolation with some form.

Shapes, twists, seat landing and swivel hips should show good form.

Varied consistency in core skills. Shapes, twists, seat landings and swivel hips should be consistent. Some good height, travel and control shown in shapes, twists, seat landings and swivel hips.

Combinations

2

(4-5)

Straight bounces, shape jumps, and twists are performed with clean identifiable shapes and with good body tension Straight bounces, shape jumps and twists are performed consistently well, with a consistent shape. Straight bounces, shape jumps and twists are performed at a good height, little travel and control over the body and limbs.
1

(1-3)

Straight bounces and shape jumps are performed with clean identifiable shapes and with good body tension Straight bounces and shape jumps are performed consistently well, with a consistent shape. Straight bounces and shape jumps are performed at a good height, little travel and control over the body and limbs
W3 Straight jumps are performed with little quality, some bent legs, uncontrolled arms. Straight jumps have some consistency with limited shape Straight jumps lack height, some travel, little control.
W2 Straight jumps are performed with very little quality, bent legs, uncontrolled arms. Straight jumps are consistently poor Straight jumps are very low with lots of travel and very little control.
