Aerial Judging

Aerial competition consists of two different acrobatic leaps from a prepared jump, stressing take-off, height and distance (referred to as air), proper style, execution and precision of movement (referred to as form) and landing.

Air makes up 20 percent of the score.

Form makes up 50 percent of the score.

Landing makes up 30 percent of the score.

The judging panel consists of seven judges, who look for takeoff, height and distance, form and twisting technique during the somersaults and precision of landing.

Five judges score takeoff (known as air) and form, with the high and low scores being discarded and the remaining three scores added together.

Two judges score landing, with the average of the two scores multiplied by three to obtain the overall landing score.

The landing score is added to the three air/form scores and multiplied by the appropriate Degree of Difficulty (DD) to determine the total score for each jump.

Scores from both jumps are added together to obtain the final result. In the case that the second round cannot be held (weather problems), then the results from just the first round can be used to determine the final result.
