Remember that there's a difference between underrotated jumps (<) and downgraded jumps (<<). Underrotated jumps DO get some value in IJS, just not the full base value of a fully rotated jumps. So, it would depend on how cheated your jumps are. If they are just underrotated (a cheat of less than 90 degrees, I think), you would get partial credit for all of them. I know that you're not in Canada, but just to give you an idea of how your program would score under Skate Canada's modified version of IJS, you WOULD get credit for your waltz jump and at least partial credit for all of your singles, as long as they're just "underrotated" but not actually "downgraded". (If they're underrotated by more than 90 degrees then, no, you wouldn't get any credit.) For your spins, no, you wouldn't get credit for your sit spin if it's not low enough. However, positions on upright spins (including backspins) are optional, so it doesn't matter if you cross your foot or not on your backspin. So, you would get full credit for your backspin, as long as you get enough revs. You're right that you can't get credit for both a forward upright spin and backspin, though - a lot of Skate Canada adult bronzes will do an upright spin and a change upright spin. If you have an upright spin and a backspin, then a change upright spin could be an option for you (if it's allowed under the USFS requirements), and that's worth more points than an individual spin anyway. Footwork just has to cover "at least half of the ice surface" for Skate Canada adult IJS, so you're fine there. (Level 1 footwork is actually REALLY easy to get credit for - all you have to do is cover enough ice and that's it - you get your points!) Also, remember that there is the PCS score as well, which definitely will always be above zero (even if it's very very low, which it is for many of us ), so it would be very hard to end up with a negative overall score unless you fall a LOT of times.
