Question I am working on several aerial skills on beam and want to know what value of skill it is. What is a side aerial and a front toss over worth? What are some example of D leaps and jumps on beam? What is a back attitude turn worth on beam?
Answer Hi Jess.
A side aerial is a D. If the front toss goes to the feet it is a D. A tuck 1/1 is a D. A switch side is a D. Any jump other than a tuck shape with at least a 3/4 twist is a D.
These are all questions that can be found in the code and online at usa-gymnastics.org. Your gym should have a Code of Points available. I would be concerned if they didn't.
I can answer questions about technique, choreography, skill values for both Women's USAG JO rules and NFHS rules. I have been in this sport for 35 plus years as an athlete and a coach. I have been a judge for 15 plus years.

Organizations I have a USAG level 10 judges rating. I am also a NJSIAA judge which uses the NFHS rules.
