Individual and synchronized trampoline routines are composed by ten consecutive skills and both events are judged in the same way when it comes to difficulty and execution.
Each skill has its numeric code and its respective difficulty value, according the FIG Code of Points (here).
Below you will be able to find four groups of videos according their total D score, so you can test your learning process.
|TRA Difficulty <10||TRA Difficulty 10-13||TRA Difficulty 13-16||TRA Difficulty >16|
|Routine 1||Routine 1||Routine 1||Routine 1|
|Routine 2||Routine 2||Routine 2||Routine 2|
|Routine 3||Routine 3||Routine 3||Routine 3|
|Routine 4||Routine 4||Routine 4||Routine 4|
|Routine 5||Routine 5||Routine 5||Routine 5|
Test yourself also on Igor Gelimbatovski routine from 1986 here.
Difficulty calculation principles
|1. The difficulty of each element is calculated on the basis of the amount of twist and somersault rotation:|
|a) per 1 somersault (90°) 0.1 pts|
|b) for complete single somersaults (360°) 0.5 pts|
|c) for complete double somersaults (720°) 1.0 pts|
|d) for complete triple somersaults (1080°) 1.6 pts|
|e) for complete quadruple somersaults (1440°) 2.2 pts|
|f) per 1/2 twist (180°) 0.1 pts|
|2. Side somersaults and elements without twist or somersault rotation have no difficulty value.|
|3. In elements combining somersault and twist, the difficulty values of the somersault and twist are added together.|
|4. Single somersaults of 360 - 630° without twists, executed in the straight or pike position, will be awarded an extra 0.1 points.|
|5. Multiple somersaults of 720° or more, with or without twists, executed in the straight or pike position, will be awarded an extra 0.1 points per somersault.|
|6. At Youth Olympic Games and Youth/Junior competitions|
|- single element is limited to 1.8 pts. Elements with higher difficulty can be performed, but will get the limited difficulty value of 1.8 pts.|
|- quadruple somersaults are not allowed and will result in a disqualification from the competition.|
|7. At Age Groups competitions §18.1 of the FIG Code of Points (see 6. above) will apply. For the different age groups this means following limitations to the difficulty in a single element:|
|- 11-12 years: 1.5 pts|
|- 13-14 years: 1.7 pts|
|- 15-16 years: 1.8 pts|
|- 17-21 years: 1.8 pts|
|For 11-12 years old, triple somersaults are prohibited, for all age groups quadruple somersaults are prohibited. Any abuse of this rules will result in the disqualification of the gymnast.|
