Technical Communication #9 - Singles - Missing Jump Type in Pre-Juvenile and Juvenile Free Programs (September 19, 2016)

This clarification has either been developed by Skate Canada or received from the ISU Technical Committees and/or Sports Directorate. Any further official clarifications provided by the ISU after the date of this communication will take precedence and will be communicated via this website.

There are situations where a Pre-Juvenile or Juvenile skater may not include the required number of different jump types in their free program.  When this occurs, Technical Panels should follow these guidelines:

Scenario 1: No Jump types repeated: No penalty to skater

Example: Juvenile Free Program – Maximum 5 jump elements. Must include 6 different jump types.

  • The skater has included their permitted 5 jump elements, but only included 5 jump types
  • The skater has not repeated any jump type(s) within the 5 jump elements
  • Therefore, there is no penalty applied to the skater. They have missed out on the opportunity to score points by not including the 6th jump type.

 

Scenario 2: Jump type(s) repeated with the program: Penalty applied to skater

Example: Juvenile Free Program – Maximum 5 jump elements. Must include 6 different jump types.

  • The skater has included their permitted 5 jump elements, but only included 5 jump types
  • The skater has repeated the loop jump type within the 5 jump elements
  • Therefore, the 1Lo is to be invalidated. Element #1 becomes 2Lo+1Lo**+C
