Routines and Deductions
For 2014-17 GA-AAU Xcel will follow the USAG Xcel Program with only exceptions as listed in GA AAU Rules and Policies.
(See exceptions bullets below)
GA AAU Xcel Program will follow all USA Xcel Rules and Policies unless otherwise specifically stated in GA AAU Rules and Policies. Due to copyright agreements with USA we do not publish USA materials. You should go to USA website to access all USA Rules Information and Changes, Value Charts, and Deduction Charts. All updates and clarifications provided through USAG regarding their Xcel Program will automatically apply to the GA-AAU Xcel Program for the 2016-17 season unless specifically modified and included in GA AAU Rules and Policies. GA AAU reserves the right to make modifications during future seasons.
All vaults (except for Round-off entry vaults; see additional bullet below) in each of the GA-Xcel Divisions (Bronze through Diamond) will be allowed to use the air board with no penalty. The allowance of the air board applies to all GA-AAU Compulsory level vaults as well.
- For the Diamond Division (exclusive for Yurchenko entry vaults, only the spring board and collar may be used.) Use of the air board for these type vaults will void that vault.
NOTE: AAU Xcel follows the USAG Xcel matting requirements for all vaults. This includes that when using both the Table and stacked matting arrangement the mat stack must be 8 inches above the Table height, plus or minus 2 inches. Failure to comply will result in a 0.3 equipment deduction for that vault.
Due to copyright issues GA-AAU is limited to what we can display on this website regarding the USAG Xcel Program. For the full USAG Xcel package it is highly recommended that clubs purchase the USAG Xcel Code of Points (second edition) on line through USAG. All updates and clarifications provided through USAG regarding their Xcel Program will automatically apply to the GA-AAU Xcel Program for the 2014-15 season. GA-AAU reserves the right to make modifications during future seasons.”
